After what feels like an unbearably long break since the Season 5 finale of the incredibly hilarious HBO show, Veep's Season 6 premiere is finally upon us. In case you've been living under a rock and weren't aware, Veep returns on Sunday, April 16, and I personally can't wait. The show doesn't come on until 10:30 p.m., which is about 30 minutes past my usual Sunday bedtime, but oh well... I'm going to be tired on Monday, because I definitely don't want to miss the premiere of the award-winning series featuring the undeniably talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus. To celebrate, I've rounded up the best Selina Meyer GIFs out there.
Louis-Dreyfus' portrayal of Selina Meyer has been so on-point that she's received five consecutive Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and in my opinion, the word "outstanding" doesn't even begin to do justice to her performance in Veep. There's literally no one else who could deliver the lines in the same sharp-tongued, yet vulnerable way that Louis-Dreyfus does.
After negotiating a deal with the Chinese government to free Tibet at the end of Season 5, Meyer — who was Vice President during the first few seasons of Veep, then became President at the very end of Season 3 — narrowly lost a congressional election to another female politician. In this new season, we’ll get to see Meyer attempt to secure her legacy outside of Washington, D.C. The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, and in today's uncertain political climate, Veep is the laugh-out loud-hilarious show that we all need in our lives.
Now, without further ado, I present you with a collection of GIFs that sum up your — and my own — excitement for the Season 6 premiere.
