LOS ANGELES – HBO says its much-honored political satire “Veep” is coming to an end.

The cable channel said Wednesday that “Veep” will air its seventh and final season in 2018.

Series star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won five consecutive Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Selina Meyer, a self-absorbed politician. The actress is up for a sixth trophy at the Sept. 17 Emmy ceremony.

“Veep,” has also won two consecutive best comedy Emmys, and is in the running to repeat.

HBO programming chief Casey Bloys writes in a statement that HBO respected the producers’ decision to bring the show to a close, calling it “bittersweet.”
