Veep: Selina Meyer spreads democracy 'like patient zero' in season 6 trailer

Posted on

HBO

Veep‘s Selina Meyer isn’t adjusting well to life outside of politics.

On President’s Day, HBO premiered a new trailer for the Emmy-winning political comedy’s upcoming sixth season, offering a sneak peek at Meyer’s first foray into the world of salvaging her legacy after becoming the nation’s first female commander-in-chief at the tail end of season 3. Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) would later seek re-election after a brief term in office, ultimately losing a tie-breaking Senate vote to eventual incumbent Laura Montez (Andrea Savage).

Judging by the new clip, Meyer is keeping up her public appearances, seemingly traveling to various events with a small staff of familiar faces, including her loyal personal assistant Gary (Tony Hale), laughably incompetent campaign aide Richard (Sam Richardson), and former press secretary Mike (Matt Walsh).

“Being an ex-president is like being a man’s nipple,” Meyer says in the preview, later likening her position to vulgar sexual behavior. “This is my second act. Selina Meyer travels the globe, spreading democracy like patient zero.”

Veep returns Sunday, April 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO. Watch the new season 6 trailer above.
