It's hard to believe that nearly two years have passed since HBO's Veep left the air. The widely acclaimed, multi-award-winning political satire created by Armando Iannucci as an American adaptation of The Thick of It became one of the television's sharpest, most biting comedies, resulting in many Emmy wins for Julia-Louis Dreyfus and Tony Hale, while also earning praise for Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh, Gary Cole, and Clea DuVall. Now that the show is concluded, however, what is the Veep cast doing now? Let's find out what's next for this award-winning ensemble.
