In case you need an alternate political reality, "Veep" is coming back tonight
Yesterday’s Tax Day March was a stark reminder — not that we needed one — that a lot of people aren’t happy with our current President. It was just a few days ago that Trump signed anti-Planned Parenthood legislation. And earlier this month, the US launched an air strike on Syria that was met with mixed reactions. But there’s one political reality where none of this is happening — and that’s in season 6 of HBO’s Veep.
In fact, in that universe, America’s already had it’s first female president and is now onto it’s second after President Selina Meyer was ousted in favor of President Laura Montez.
Actor Timothy Simons was the first to remind us this morning with this very festive tweet — but we’d already been waiting. false
In fact, we’ve been counting down the days since the official season 6 trailer debuted last month. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DU_VyHcWL4
But as tonight’s premiere approaches, we still have a lot of questions. Namely, if Selina and her crew aren’t in the White House, where is the show going to go? Luckily, showrunner David Mandel gave EW.com the dish.
One thing that viewers have been worried about is blurring the line between fiction and reality. When Sean Spicer is already making Mike McLintock-style gaffes, it’s hard to keep up with the comedy.
But Mandel had an answer for that, too.
Bottom line? We can’t wait to see what new and absolutely insane adventures the Veep crew gets up to this season — so we’re setting our DVRs now and tuning in live so we don’t miss a second.
We just won’t let any little kids watch with us.
See you tonight, Veep.
