HBO’s comedy series Veep will end its run after its upcoming season, the network said Wednesday.
The series, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as politician Selina Meyer, will air its seventh and final season most likely in 2018, although the network has not set a launch date.
The series has racked up 12 Emmy Awards over its run on HBO, including five straight wins in the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for Dreyfus.
This year Veep is nominated for 17 primetime Emmy Awards.
"The decision to bring Veep to a close at the end of next season is bittersweet," said Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming in a statement. "We love the show and everyone involved but respect the producers’ choice to bring Selina Meyer's journey to its conclusion after an extraordinary run of critical and award-winning acclaim. Julia Louis-Dreyfus' comedic brilliance infused Selina with a dynamic presence and a vibrant wit which will ensure her a place in the history of television's most iconic comedic characters. We look forward to producing the seventh and final season."
