One of the well acclaimed US political parodies, Veep, will pull down its curtains with Season 7 in 2018, corresponding with Donald Trump's run as US President. HBO announced on August 6 that "Veep" will end with season 7, leaving a void in the minds of parody viewers. Although show runner David Mandel and Julia Louis – Dreyfus found it unwelcome to end the season, they thought that it is the right time to end the satire.

"The decision to bring 'Veep' to a close at the end of the next season is bittersweet," said Casey Bloys, programming head of HBO. He added that he respects the producer's choice, who is looking forward to the seventh season.

Veep is an American political comedy series featuring Julia Louis -Dreyfus that premiered on HBO on April 22, 2012 and is based on the British Sitcom, "The Thick of it." The series revolves around Selina Meyer, fictional president and vice president of the United States. It depicts how her team leaves a mark on a lasting legacy without getting embroiled in day-to-day politics that defines the American Government.

Mandel quoted that the seventh season has 10 episodes for the final season, bringing an end to the Selina's journey. They also found the location where the shooting of the final season begins on October 16. Interestingly, all the major characters are kept back in the season which is good to go. Veep, featuring stars like Louis -Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chulmusky, Matt Walsh, Ried Scott, is the winner of 12 Primetime Emmy awards, including two Outstanding Comedy Series. Julia Louis -Dreyfus is presently nominated for the Best Actress award at the forthcoming Prime time Emmy Awards.
