So it’s fitting that the official poster for “Veep” Season 5 focuses on the unknown, both in that we don’t know who the next President will be and in what hope a newly-elected President Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) could actually offer.

In a play off the famous 2008 campaign poster designed by artist Shepard Fairey for now-President Barack Obama, the poster below pictures our candidate with an expression in direct relation to the word underneath it. A few of the actors have already taken to Twitter with their own interpretation of the poster, but take a look at the full image first.

“Veep” Season 5 premieres Sunday, April 24 at 10pm on HBO.
