VEEP to end after seven seasons

HBO's political comedy VEEP is to end after the completion of its seventh season. 

Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter, that the show, which began life as a US adaptation of Armando Iannucci's hit comedy The Thick Of It, would end after the broadcast of its seventh season in 2018. 

She said: "It became clear that this season should be the last season. We don't want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series."

Producer David Mandel added: "It was just a very natural thing. We don't want to repeat ourselves or be boring. It's bittersweet but it's right."

VEEP began its run in 2012 and starred Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, a senator who has been newly elected Vice-President and her struggle to carve out a fulfilling role in public life. 

Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh and Sufe Bradshaw co-starred in the series.
