How to watch ‘Veep’ season 7 online for free

Selina Meyer—the one-time senator turned vice president, then the accidental president of the United States—is serving one more term before a final farewell to Veep.

The end of season 7 will be Meyer’s last laugh in the hilarious world of D.C. politics. Last season, Meyer was adjusting to civilian life, raising money for her presidential library, and serving as a goodwill ambassador worldwide—all while trying to dip her toes back into the political life she left behind. And while it seemed America had its fill of Meyer for one lifetime, her popularity saw an uptick, which she hopes to capitalize in her third run for the U.S. presidency.

Will she finally win the coveted commander-in-chief gig she always dreamed of? Or will her bumbling staff paired with her own terrible decisions cost her the opportunity once again? The only certainty is this legendary political comedy will deliver once more on the outrage, the laughs, and occasionally, a little bit of heart.
