Veep Season 5 Trailer Reminds Us That The Government Is…Funny?

Veep is back, just in time for some non-depressing comic relief about the American government and the potential psychopaths that rule us all.

President Selena Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her gang of semi-competent weirdos all return in HBO’s first full Season 5 trailer. Behind the scenes, this season is about to pull a Gilmore Girls and return with a new show runner: Curb Your Enthusiasm’s David Mandel. London-based creator and previous show runner Armando Ianucci, who claimed he was no longer “giving 100 percent,” has discussed the season’s direction (back to VP for Selena?) with Mandel. From the 1:50 we’ve seen so far, the show seems as quick as ever. We must have all learned our lesson from that ill-fated Gilmore Girls Season 7.

Watch the video below for jokes like “Why has the economy been such a disaster? They’re already calling [today] Black Wednesday. Jesus, it’s only Wednesday?” Veep returns to HBO on Sunday, April 24th at 10:30 pm.
