HBO’s hit comedy-series “VEEP” will return for its six-season this spring, and HBO has confirmed that the season premiere will air on April 16, 2017. If you need a refresher on the current affairs of the characters, President Selina Meyer is out of public office, and currently searching for a new purpose in life. Having lost the crucial Senate vote to break the Electoral College tie, fans were left wondering what Meyer’s next move will be.
It will be a big change for the show, having Meyer out of the Government sector for the first time since the series premiered in 2012. According to HBO Meyer will be seeking to “secure her legacy,” and “find her place in the world”. This also means that there will be big changes for the supporting cast of characters, all of whom will have to find new jobs in the new season.
The Emmy-winning comedy series will have a ten-episode season this year, and season-six will premiere on April 16th at 10pm ET on HBO. “VEEP” stars Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the ensemble cast includes two-time Emmy winner Tony Hale as Gary, Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky as Amy, Emmy nominee Matt Walsh as Mike, Reid Scott as Dan; Timothy Simons as Jonah, Kevin Dunn as Ben, Emmy nominee Gary Cole as Kent; and Sam Richardson as Richard.
Recurring guest stars on the new season include Sarah Sutherland as Catherine, Selina’s daughter, and Clea DuVall as Marjorie, Catherine’s girlfriend. Other guests this season include Amy Brenneman, Margaret Colin, Stephen Fry and Paul Scheer.
The show will premiere one-month after “Game of Thrones” season 7 hits HBO. Fans of the popular fantasy-series can catch that premiere on July 16, 2017. If you’re looking for another comedy, you can catch the new season of “Silicon Valley”, on April 23, 2017.
