Less than a month before its premiere, HBO finally gives us a taste of the upcoming third season of Veep.
Recall that season two ended with the never-seen president opting not to run for a second term, leaving Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Selina Meyer with a straight shot to the White House. And it would appear that season three will be all about her struggle (and you can bet it will be a struggle) to becoming "the most powerful person on Earth."
We don't see much of the rest of the cast in this barely-anything-at-all 30-second teaser — only Meyers' bag-man Gary trying to give the best response when she asks if she is "ruthless...enough."
Whether or not she's successful in her presidential bid, there seems to be a good chance won't see Meyer as veep too much longer, if she has anything to say about it: "I'd rather be shot in the face than serve as vice president again. Seriously, in the fucking face."
Veep returns to HBO on Sunday, April 6 at 10:30 p.m. Mark your calendars accordingly.
