Veep Season 7 was announced on May 25, 2017. It will premiere in 2019 on HBO. It will be the final season.
On May 25, 2017, it was announced that Veep would return for a seventh season. On September 6, it was announced it would be the final season.
Showrunner David Mandel said "I don’t think were going to jump ahead a year again. One of the areas that really is interesting to me is the campaigning before the campaign. I’m also fascinated about what it [would be like for Selina & Co.] to live in Iowa two years before a national election when every five minutes a different person is knocking on your door. It’s a wide-open field of people looking to run against [current President] Montez."
According to Variety on July 30, 2017: 'The next season of the show will likely be picking up in Iowa, as Mandel put it, “many, many months before the caucuses,” as Meyer starts her new campaign for the White House. He likes having the show centered on “that wonderful period when many, many people think they can be President of the United States.” Also running is Jonah Ryan, who will be a “favorite son” of New Hampshire... Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen, the authors of the book “Shattered” about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, visited the “Veep” writers on Friday, Mandel confirmed. The team is looking for ways for how Meyer will deal with the prospect of doing an “autopsy” of what went wrong with her previous campaign.'
On July 10, 2017, Mandel announced on Twitter that it's the first day back in the writers room. Writing on the season began on August 21, and the season was officially drafted on August 24. The first table read for the season was held on October 18.
Filming was expected to begin on October 16, 2017, but this was complicated with the breast cancer diagnosis of Julia Louis-Dreyfus in September 2017. On November 15, it was announced that production has been postponed until further notice. On January 21, 2018, filming was announced to begin in August 2018 and that season seven will premiere in 2019.
