Last season on Veep, Vice President Selina Meyer’s political aspirations took a lot of damage, as she couldn’t seem to avoid numerous PR gaffes and failed legislation. Her approval numbers sank and with that, her chances to get a call from the President; once optimistic that she was going to make change in Washington, Selina was now as cynical as they come, having abandoned hope that her time in the White House would result in anything positive. But could she reverse her course from last season and build up enough political capital to introduce another piece of legislation?
Listed below are the dates, titles, descriptions, and reair information for the first three episodes of Veep‘s second season.
