Veep's Last Episode: What Time Does it Air?

Getty Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the star of HBO's hit political comedy, Veep. It's last episode airs on HBO at 10:50pm on May 12th.

The final season of the critically acclaimed HBO comedy series, Veep will close its curtains this weekend.

The Julia Louis-Dreyfus led comedy series, best known for its satirical take on Washington D.C. and America’s political system, will air its last episode tonight on HBO.

The show will air at 10:50 PM EST on HBO Sunday, May 12th.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Is in a League of Her Own

The former matriarch of NBC’s hit comedy Seinfeld has used her talent and fame to lead to another critically acclaimed comedy that will go down in television history. The current queen of comedy has won 11 Emmys, including nine when she was on Veep.

This puts Louis-Dreyfus in the upper-echelon of primetime comedic talent, as she holds the record most Emmys won by a single performer for one role.

Along with Veep and Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus also won an Emmy for her performance in 2006 when she was the main character in The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Although Veep will go down as one of the best comedies to air in the 21st century, Louis-Dreyfus felt that season seven was an appropriate end. In an interview with Entertainment WeeklyLouis-Dreyfus said that anything after season seven just felt, “incorrect.”

“When we were having lengthy conversations and soul-searching conversations amongst ourselves, and we tried to think about, ‘What would season 8 be? How could we map out season 7 and then season 8?,’ it felt incorrect,” Louis-Dreyfus said. “It felt like we were stretching story for the sake of doing another season. The storytelling dictated the end of the show. It felt right.”

A post shared by Julia Louis-Dreyfus (@officialjld) on Sep 28, 2017 at 10:16am PDT

She began her announcement, which was posted to Instagram by writing, “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.” Louis-Dreyfus went on to thank her family and friends for their support characterizing them as, “the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends.”

“The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality,” Louis-Dreyfus added.

After several months of treatment, Louis-Dreyfus came back 100% cancer-free and looking better than ever. In a follow-up post, the Veep star was thrilled and complimented her doctors.

“Hoorah! Great doctors, great results, feeling happy and ready to rock after surgery,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in her post. “Hey cancer, ‘Fuck you!’ Here’s my first post-op photo,” she added.

Veep Wrapped up With ‘Loving Care’

In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Louis-Dreyfus discussed how the writers, directors and actors handled the final episodes of Veep.

“A lot of tender loving care was put in,” Louis-Dreyfus said, quickly returning to the show’s root in dark humor. “By the way, it’s as dark as it could possibly be while, I hope, remaining very funny. But it’s incredibly dark.”

Her full answer can be found below:

It’s a lovely match to the full run, a lovely match to the very beginning. It makes sense on so many levels for every single character. A lot of attention was paid to every single character in the show. A lot of thought was put into, “Where do we want them to end up?” And I’m very proud of them. I think Dave and all of our writers did an absolutely magnificent job in terms of attention to detail. A lot of tender loving care was put in. By the way, it’s as dark as it could possibly be while, I hope, remaining very funny. But it’s incredibly dark.
