In less than two weeks, you will be able to begin the final season of Veep. Or is that Better Call Selina?

Better Call Saul‘s Rhea Seehorn and Michael McKean will help to send off Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), EW has learned exclusively.

Season 7 of the Emmy-winning and unforgiving political comedy sees former POTUS Selina Meyer kicking off her campaign for commander in chief once again, and Seehorn, who currently stars on Saul, will play Michelle, the chief of staff of a rival candidate in several episodes. “She can be tense and is very devoted to her candidate,” says executive producer David Mandel, who also refers to Michelle as “Amy-like.”

McKean — who exited Saul as a series regular after season 3 — will play the governor of Iowa in one episode. Given the state’s early-bird importance in the election cycle, “people are coming in and wanting his endorsement for the presidency,” says Mandel, “and he’s trying to figure out what that can get him.”

Seehorn and McKean are not the only familiar faces new to the show this season. Andy Daly (Review) will guest-star in multiple episodes as an upbeat campaign manager named Keith Quinn who joins Selina’s team. “When things start to go wrong on her campaign, this is the guy Selena thinks she wants,” teases Mandel. Meanwhile, Key & Peele alum Keegan-Michael Key will play a politically connected reverend in South Carolina who has “enormous sway with the African-American vote, and needless to say Selena needs his support,” says Mandel.

Veep’s guest roster over the years has included Dan Bakkedahl, Patton Oswalt, Hugh Laurie, Kathy Najimy, Zach Woods, John Slattery, Lennon Parham, Randall Park, Peter MacNicol, and Sally Phillips.

The first trailer for the seven-episode seventh season — which begins Mar. 31 at 10:30 p.m. on HBO  — features Selina proudly declaring “I took a dump on the glass ceiling,” and Jonah (Timothy Simons) hitting the campaign trail and telling a crowd, “You have the second-lowest vaccination rates in the nation, and when I’m elected president, you will be No. 1!”
