We’d been waiting for official word for some time now but HBO has finally gotten its spring schedule in order (mostly). The Vice Presidency is in good hands again starting in April. Here is the official presser from HBO:

The Emmy®-nominated comedy series VEEP kicks off its ten-episode second season SUNDAY, APRIL 14 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Created by Armando Iannucci (Oscar®nominee for co-writing “In the Loop”), the show stars Emmy®-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, who becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected, but everything she was warned about.

The returning ensemble cast of the show also includes Tony Hale (“Arrested Development”) as Gary, her right-hand man; Anna Chlumsky (“In the Loop”) as Amy, her chief of staff; Matt Walsh (HBO’s “Hung”) as Mike, Vice President Meyer’s weathered spokesperson; Reid Scott (“My Boys”) as Dan, an ambitious political aide; Timothy Simons (“Days Together”) as Jonah, a young and somewhat clueless White House liaison; and Sufe Bradshaw (“Overnight”) as Sue, Vice President Meyer’s executive assistant.

Guest stars on the new season include Gary Cole (HBO’s “Entourage”) and Kevin Dunn (HBO’s “Luck”).

Last September, Julia Louis-Dreyfus received the Emmy® for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the series’ first season; she previously received Emmys® for “Seinfeld” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine.” VEEP was also nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Kicking off its eight-episode first season in April 2012, VEEP was called “brilliantly fresh” and “viciously funny” by the Washington Post, which hailed the show’s “terrific ensemble,” while Entertainment Weekly described it as “brilliantly funny.” TV Guide noted, “Julia Louis-Dreyfus shines,” and the Hollywood Reporter termed it “hilarious,” saying the show “hits on all cylinders.”

We’ve updated our HBO series schedule with the countdown.  See you in April, Veep Fans!

    This show is my favorite comedy that HBO offers us right now. Some new comedies are on the horizon however, so we will see what happens.
