On April 21, 2016, Veep was renewed for a sixth season, three days ahead of the fifth season premiere.
When season five ended on June 26, 2016, many were shocked by the series finale-like ending, in which Selina Meyer became a former president and her staff disbanded. In an interview, show-runner David Mandel said of the upcoming season: "One thing I can tell you is that Gary will be by Selina's side — and I would not want to be in his shoes. We've seen that she doesn't deal well with defeat and I think she's going to lose her quest for relevancy."
Writing began on August 11th and the season was outlined on August 20, 2016. On September 30th, it was announced that filming had begun. On October 10th, the crew were shooting scenes at the Ronald Reagan Presidential library, as a set for the Stuart Hughes Presidential Library, which will be the second episode of the season.
Based on photos from the set, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sarah Sutherland, Timothy Simons, Sam Richardson, Gary Cole, Kevin Dunn, Andrea Savage, David Pasquesi, and Clea DuVall would all be returning for Season 6. Robert Pine will appear as a guest star in the episode "Library".
On February 7th, HBO announced that season six would premiere on April 16, 2017, and released a teaser of the new season on February 19th. The poster for the season was released on March 7th, with the crew parodying the famous Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima image.
Production in L.A. wrapped on February 22th. From March 5th-7th, the crew travelled to New York to film several scenes. Production on the season officially ended on March 7th.
