Veep finishes up its fifth season with four brand new episodes airing in June 2016. Created by Armando Iannucci, the cast is led by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and includes Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole, and Sam Richardson. John Slattery, Sarah Sutherland, and Hugh Laurie are back on season five as guest stars.
The Season 5 Plot: President Selina Meyer is in the midst of a virtually unprecedented Electoral College tie, with her future as commander in chief coming down to just a few hundred votes. While Amy and Dan work on a long shot to victory, Selina finds herself spinning her wheels in D.C., as her staff strives to make her seem presidential (even though she actually is President), at the same time fending off the ambitions of Tom James, her charismatic running mate, who in a twist of obscure constitutional procedure could end up becoming president.
