HBO looks ahead to release Veep Season 5. The hilarious television series is coming on April 24 for a ten-episode run.
Veep’s biting satire
Veep is an American politi-comedy series, premiered on HBO on April 22, 2012, with an eight-episode season. The TV show creator is Armando Iannucci, British writer, and showrunner, who wrote for HBO an incredibly funny swearing sitcom about the British government – The Thick of It, and then made and directed a full movie based on that sitcom – In the Loop (2009), remaining the same characters. Along with Iannucci are working executive producers Christopher Godsick (Face/Off), Frank Rich (Face the Nation, Piers Morgan Tonight) and Simon Blackwell (Trying Again).
The main character is Selina Meyer starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus who is known by The New Adventures of Old Christine, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld. Especially due to the last nine-season-series Julia couldn’t get rid of her character. But in the new show, she plays an eccentric Vice President of the United States who is working so hard but most of her energy go on the correction of errors of her staff that should actually be the one who might solve the problems.
Celina hardly supports the workflow in the group where everyone is continuously quarreling with each other. Her staff members are Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky), Gary Walsh (Tony Hale), Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons), Mike McLintock (Matt Walsh). She invites Dan Egan (Reid Scott) whom everybody find as a rare asshole but who is the only one can manage the staff to avoid turning any crappy problem into a complete crash.
Critic’s darling series
As a whole, the series, first released in 2012 with eight-episode season, has gained more critical approval than viewers but a satirical new show has been growing its popularity. It was a big surprise that the first season could take away Emmy Awards prize (Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series). Year after year Veep has been nominated for different awards:
1 season: Best Comedy in Series Women’s Image Network Awards, season 2: Top 10 TV Show of 2013 in 2013 AFI Awards, Julia Louis-Dreyfus took 2 awards – in 3rd Critics’ Choice Television Awards (as Best Actress in a Comedy Series) and again Emmy Awards (as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series), season 3: 2 winners – Jim Gloster (Art Directors Guild Awards 2013) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series), season 4: 5 prizes from Emmy Awards and so on. The list is impressive and the fifth season is going to be a big intrigue on awards account.
Veep Season 5 premiere
The HBO network has already announced its series schedule in spring. The back-to-back comedic TV show Veep is entering its fifth season along with Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley. The spring promises to be hot on long-expected premieres. The Emmy Award winning show returns with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky and some renewed cast. The viewers eagerly await Veep date release which is on April 24, 2016.
