'Veep' renewed for season 3

Veep 201 Julia Louis Dreyfus

HBO’s other Sunday night original series just got renewed.

And no, we’re not talking about the Game of Thrones repeat either, this is an entirely different program – Veep, which tends to get overlooked among all the hubbub stirred up by the network’s fantasy hit.

The political workplace comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus will get a third round next year. The most recent episode of the show delivered  1.3 million viewers at 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, it’s largest audience of the season (probably didn’t hurt that the Veep’s lead-in delivered a series high too, and you can probably guess which show we’re referring to).
