WATCH: “Veep” Is POTUS In First Trailer For Season Four

“You’re like a real-life Mariah Carey.”

As the real-life presidential election lingers in the not-too-distant future, the much-preferred fake one has already happened on HBO’s Veep, and due to an unexpected rearrangement of power, the nation’s first woman president is, oh god, Selina Meyer.

Starting on April 12—the same night as the season five premiere of Game of Thrones (a big night in terms of our most anticipated TV shows of the year)—Armando Iannucci’s beloved satire returns with the stakes raised unexpectedly, and the haircuts cropped…expectedly.

Ahead of that momentous occasion, you can get a taste of the new era via the first full-length season four Veep trailer below, Hugh Laurie introduction and all.

Veep returns to HBO on April 12.
