Later this month Foxtel will present the sixth season of the HBO award-winning comedy series Veep
Starring Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the former Vice President and onetime President, who looks to secure her legacy now that she’s out of office.
Season 6 picks up one year after the events of Season 5, in which Selina ultimately lost a Senate vote to resolve the Electoral College tie. Now out of public office for the first time in years, Selina seeks to secure her legacy and find her place in the world, while much of her staff pursues endeavors of their own. A perennial favorite with fans and critics, this 10-episode season of Veep finds this band of misfits attempting to make their mark, while navigating the political landscape in Washington and beyond.
Veep’s ensemble cast includes Tony Hale (two-time Emmy-winner for this role) as Selina’s devoted bodyman Gary; Anna Chlumsky (Emmy®-nominated) as Amy, her on-again, off-again right-hand woman; Matt Walsh (Emmy®-nominated) as former spokesperson Mike; Reid Scott (My Boys) as the uber-ambitious Dan; Timothy C. Simons (The Interview) as Congressman Jonah Ryan; Sufe Bradshaw (Rizzoli & Isles) as Selina’s former assistant Sue; Kevin Dunn (True Detective) as former chief of staff Ben; Gary Cole (Emmy-nominated) as analyst Kent; and Sam Richardson (Office Christmas Party) as new staff member Richard.
Recurring guests include Sarah Sutherland (The Newsroom) as Selina’s daughter Catherine and Clea DuVall (American Horror Story) as Catherine’s girlfriend Marjorie. Additional guests appearing this season include Margaret Colin (Gossip Girl), Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers), Paul Scheer (The League) and British comedian Stephen Fry.
Veep Season 6 begins April 26, Wednesdays at 8.30pm AEST, on Foxtel’s showcase or on Foxtel’s
