The Veep cast will reunite again for another political fundraiser on Sunday. This time they'll re-create the 2016 recount episode to benefit the Democrats in the Georgia U.S. Senate runoff, featuring special guests Stephen Colbert, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, Beanie Feldstein, Don Cheadle and Paul Scheer. On the latest episode of The New Abnormal podcast, Louis-Dreyfus was asked if she'd ever return to Veep. “We’ve certainly discussed it,” she said, according to The Daily Beast. “Everybody’s sort of gone off now and everybody’s doing other projects and so on. But I don’t rule it out entirely, doing some sort of Veep-related thing. I mean, there’s an area that we could jump back into. I think (showrunner) Dave (Mandel) and I have talked about it.” Mandel says the Veep writers left behind enough time jumps so that a return to Veep is feasible. “There’s always an opportunity for satire and we’re hopeful that with the Biden administration, you know, things will sort of settle down and then we can be the outrageous ones," says Louis-Dreyfus. Mandel adds: "Yeah. It requires a baseline of normalcy. And if we can get back to that, if we can get back to a time where you’re not thinking about the president every six minutes, I think maybe we can get back to some good old fashioned political satire. But (the Trumpists) made it difficult. They raise the bar on stupidity on a daily basis. So it was very hard to out-stupid. You know what I mean?"
