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.
