    HBO has annouced a premiere date for Season 3 of Veep: April 6, 2014!

    Looking forward to some great discussion and excitement prior to the start!

    In the chat with Tom, JLD said that the show will tackle some hot issues instead of dancing around them this season because Selina is running for the [insert party] nomination.

    I’m looking forward to that because Iannucci is the most wicked satirist on television right now.

    The sophomore season should have won Best Comedy Series at the Emmys last Fall. I am very excited to see where the series goes this season.

    JLD said Chris Meloni would guest star this season. Also, in a facebook chat, she said that ‘Selina “writes” a book and goes on a book tour – gets out of Washington. Bad things happen.”

    Can’t wait for this season!

    It would’ve been great if Veep had won the Emmy for its freshman season IMO. I have high hopes for this 3rd season.

    Veep and Game of Thrones coming back at the same time is fantastic (and just in time to fill the void left by Pretty Little Liars :)).  I would have loved to see Veep win the Emmy last fall, and I bet this season will continue the show’s awesomeness.  Also, Chris Meloni!  Could I be more excited about this return?

    “Season 3 is where we say, ‘OK, if you’re actually going to run for president, you have to make friends with all of America and you have to come up with a set of policies that you stand behind because you can’t hide behind the president any longer.’ This is the season where Selina has to start defining who she is.”

    A task that’s easier said than done, considering the character has spent the last two seasons trying to be everything to everyone. “Season 1 was all about Selina coming to terms with the limitations she faced in her job and with her staff,” said Iannucci. “Season 2 was all about her trying to get closer to power. Season 3 shows how politics work outside of D.C.”

    That means Veep is hitting the road, both on screen and in real life, and will feature episodes set in Detroit, London, and Silicon Valley, each of which has the potential to be this year’s version of Helsinki (the sensational Season 2 episode that was a startling culture clash for Vice President Meyer — and her left breast). “I’m excited about the trip to Silicon Valley in particular,” Iannucci said. “We take you into the whole Google/Facebook culture, and that air of how highly they regard themselves since they’re much more influential than, say, the vice president.”

    Per usual, however, the biggest threat to the veep’s success comes from her staff, who adopt a take-no-prisoners attitude this season as Meyer inches closer and closer to the Oval Office.

    “Because the stakes are higher, there will be a fight for survival — maybe at the expense of others in the group,” Iannucci teased. “Dan (Reid Scott) and Amy (Anna Chlumsky) in particular are both quite keen to become Selina’s chosen one, so you’ll see a lot of campaigning within the team.”

    But every character — Selina Meyer especially — will have a moment of weakness this season and will question whether or not they’re actually qualified to occupy their dream job. That’s why Iannucci feels Veep’s Season 3 poster perfectly represents the next stretch of episodes.

    “There’s something so wonderful about looking dignified despite the truth,” he said, laughing. “If that painting were a stop-frame animation, what would happen next?”
