The series stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as [SPOILER ALERT] former President Selina Meyer. The cast also includes Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, and Sufe Bradshaw. Season five of Veep ended last night.
Mandel said season six will focus on Selina outside of the White House:
However, one of the things I am really excited about is much in the way Veep became the story of the president of the United States when she became president, we are now going to get a chance to sort of check out what it’s like for her to be the former president of the United States – and not perhaps a well regarded former president of the United States.”
He added that the season will be “uncharted territory”:
Selina was a placeholder president who held the job for only a year, and perhaps, in the eyes of many, isn’t perhaps deserving of her round-the-clock Secret Service, of the things that normally go with an ex-president of the United States. These are going to be very hard things for someone like Selina Meyer to hear, and so that’s what gets me very excited, is sort of the new world, the uncharted territory going into next season”
What do you think? Do you watch Veep? Did you enjoy the season five finale?
