The most beloved ex-Veep, former-POTUS and future world power Selina Meyer is back, after a “really fun” year, in the official trailer for Veep season 6.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as former President of the United States Selina Meyer, admits the “loss hurt,” but since a tie-breaking vote in Congress put Laura Montez, her opponent’s vice presidential candidate, into the White House, she’s remembers what’s most important.
“I did take this opportunity to reacquaint myself with an old friend of mine by the name of Selina Meyer,” she says. She’s also been living a very busy life, painting over inner-city graffiti, and offering to wallpaper, avoiding landmines in refugee camps, and promising revenge. Her plans to destroy new congressman Jonah Ryan are “so creative, they will honor me for it at the Kennedy Center!”
Veep season 6 will run 10 episodes and follow the former vice president’s first post-Presidential year. Meyer was never actually voted into office, she got the job on the heels of a presidential scandal that left her in charge. Her successor got in when Washington couldn’t break a tie.
President Selina Meyer will look back on a short legacy as commander-in-chief of the United States after an unprecedented turn in the elections, but Julia Louis-Dreyfuss continues to serve as First Lady of TV Comedy. Dreyfus won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row in September and pulled in the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series last month.
Veep won two best comedy Emmys and took home the best directing comedy series trophy at Saturday’s DGA Awards
