When we last saw Vice President Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep, she had rebounded in popularity after crying during a TV interview, only to suffer backlash when it came out that the tears had been staged. (She wasn’t in on it: Mike and Amy plotted behind her back.) Her office was in chaos, her staff continued to snipe at each other, and a lot of people said the f-word.
In other words, thank god Armando Iannucci’s Veep will soon return to us, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won an Emmy in September for the role of Selina, leading the way. Not that Selina ever leads.
