Veep, HBO’s acclaimed comedy and Emmy powerhouse, will end its run with a final seventh season in 2018.

Star and executive producer Julia Louis-Dreyfus told The Hollywood Reporter:

“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.”

Executive producer David Mandei, who mapped out the final season, said:

“It was just a very natural thing. We don’t want to repeat ourselves or be boring. It’s bittersweet but it’s right. . . I’m so f—ing excited for what we’ve got on the board and for fans to see what we’ve cooked up.”
