HBO Re-elects Veep for a Third Season
HBO wants Meyer in 2014! The pay-cable network has ordered a third season of its comedy Veep, asking for 10 episodes to air in 2014. The series is currently in its second season, where it's enjoyed a ratings boost thanks in part to riding Game of Thrones' wake. Last year, Veep was paired with Girls, but apparently the Lannisters make for better bedfellows than Lena Dunham.
In case you don't know (though you should), Veep stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as fictional vice president Selina Meyer, a bumbling politician with aspirations to one day sit in the Oval Office. Reid Scott, Tony Hale, Matt Walsh, and Anna Chlumsky play her aids, and don't forget about Timothy Simons as the arrogant White House liaison. The show was created by Armando Iannucci, the man behind the popular U.K. political comedy The Thick of It.
With all this talent both established and emerging on Veep, it got me thinking, "I wonder who everyone's favorite character is?" So I made a poll! For the record, I'm voting Jonah. He and Mike together are incredible.
Veep airs Sunday nights at 10pm on HBO.
