Veep Season 7 Production is Currently on Hold

The production for the seventh and final season of Veep is currently on hold, according to executive producer Frank Rich, while series star Julia Louis-Dreyfus undergoes treatment for breast cancer. The show is adjusting its production schedule to accommodate Louis-Dreyfus’ treatment.

In an interview with Rich on SiriusXM, he confirmed that the production has been delayed. “We’re obviously postponing production of the show – we were supposed to have started now – while she’s in treatment,” Rich told host Julie Mason. “But the expectation is that we will shoot again. We have one more season we’re doing, which we’re incredibly excited about.”

“Rather impressively, while we wait for her to gather her full strength around her treatment, we’ve been having with the cast in Los Angeles table reads of scripts for the final season as they’re ready,” he continued. “So, It’s been quite something because she’s fighting a serious, what is for anybody, a real illness. And yet, wants to keep working as much as circumstances allow without being crazy about it.”

Rich said that he saw Louis-Dreyfus ten days ago and “watched her just be hilarious playing Selina Meyer. With the cast all around her playing the assorted group of idiots that Selina has to deal with on a weekly basis on the show. So she’s got a great support system. She’s a very strong person and we can’t wait to welcome her back at full speed.”

Louis-Dreyfus has been open about her ongoing treatment, ever since she shared publicly about her diagnosis, on her social media accounts. She announced last September 28 on her tweet that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She received the diagnosis a day after she won an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in the show. She has received numerous supports from her colleagues in the show and her friends in the industry for her battle against the cancer.
