Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ Selina Meyer sets out to write the next chapter of her life and seek some well-deserved vengeance in the hilarious new trailer for Season Six of Veep. The comedy returns to HBO April 16th.
The clip opens with the ex-President offering a filtered take on her first year out of office on a morning show then cuts to an encounter with now-Congressman Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons), who cost her the election in the House of Representatives. “I will destroy you in ways that are so creative, they will honor me for it at the Kennedy Center,” Meyer seethes.
The rest of the clip boasts plenty of quintessential Veep burns, from Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) bashing the state and staff of a new gubernatorial campaign she’s running (“Saddle up those emphysema tanks, you inbred cousin-fuckers”), to Meyer slamming Mike McClintock’s (Matt Walsh) horrible choice of sunscreen: “You look like the world’s least fucked Geisha.”
