Veep star says show could return
It would have to be during Joe Biden's presidency when the US is back to being more "normal."
Veep’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus has said the award-winning political satire could return to TV.
“We've certainly discussed it,” she said on The Daily Beast’s The New Abnormal podcast. “Everybody's sort of gone off now and everybody's doing other projects and so on."
“But I don't rule it out entirely, doing some sort of Veep-related thing. I mean, there's an area that we could jump back into. I think Dave (Mendel) and I have talked about it."
Mendel, who served as showrunner from its fifth season onward, echoed her sentiments saying “we left just enough, sort of like there's some time jumps in there that you could definitely … kind of colour in and answer a couple of questions."
They also both agreed that a Veep revival would most likely arrive following Donald Trump’s departure from office as its political satire will be much more effective once the US is back to a “baseline of normalcy.”
“We're hopeful that with the Biden administration, you know, things will sort of settle down, and then we can be the outrageous ones," Louis-Dreyfus continued.
Created by Armando Iannucci as a US adaptation of In The Thick Of It, Veep follows hapless Vice President Selina Mayer (Dreyfuss) and her team.
Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw and Sarah Sutherland also star.
It ran for seven seasons between 2012 and 2019 receiving widespread acclaim and plenty of awards including six Emmy wins and five Golden Globe nominations for Louis-Dreyfus.
