HBO Renews Julia Louis-Dreyfus Political Comedy 'Veep' For a Third Season

Selina Meyer's presidential campaign may not have worked out, but she's been given another term in her television stint as VP. HBO just announced that "Veep" has been renewed for a 10-episode third season, scheduled for a to-be-determined date in 2014.

Created by Armando Iannucci ("In the Loop"), the comedy series stars Emmy-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Meyer, the Vice President of the United States. The show kicked off its current 10-episode second season last month to strong reviews. It will continue to run through June.

In addition to Louis-Dreyfus, the ensemble cast of the show also includes Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw and Kevin Dunn as Ben.

The news follows a third season renewal of "Girls" back in January, which first premiered alongside "Veep" in 2012. "Girls" is getting 12 episodes for round 3, while "Veep" is staying static at 10.
