Veep: Inside the Final Season still

HBO/YouTube



Cue the feels. HBO has released a new featurette for "Veep" Season 7, and it features footage from the final season and an emotional Julia Louis-Dreyfus talking about the show's conclusion.

The actress previews Season 7, explaining how it starts in Iowa, where her character, Selina Meyer, "is putting out feelers to really get out there publicly and launch her campaign." Louis-Dreyfus added that it's "pretty outrageous" and the "extreme times" called for "extreme comedy."

"I think people are going to be very happy with the journey that these characters take," she says.

Louis-Dreyfus broke the news in September 2017 that Season 7 would conclude the series. She told THR at the time that "it became clear that this season should be the last," as they didn't want to "wear out [their] welcome." Production hit a roadblock shortly thereafter when Louis-Dreyfus was diagnosed with breast cancer, but fortunately she was able to recover and get back to work. Now, the imminent arrival of Season 7 is all the sweeter.

"Veep" Season 7 premieres March 31.
