It’s the end of an era.

The official trailer for season 7 of Veep dropped Sunday night, showing Julia Louis-Dreyfus as politician Selina Meyer for the last time.

The trailer shows flashbacks from past seasons leading up to Meyer’s decision to run for president yet again.

“I’m going to run for president again,” she says.

But now the question remains: will Meyer lose yet another bid for the presidency?

“She’s ending things on her own term,” tweeted the official Veep account.

Louis-Dreyfus also shared the trailer on Twitter, writing, “We’re coming back. Get your sorry a—– ready.”

The upcoming season will serve as the series’ last.

Louis-Dreyfus, who has won six Emmy Awards for her portrayal of the politician, previously admitted she had a hard time saying goodbye to the show after wrapping the final season in December.

The actress, 57, posted a series of photos of herself making silly faces with a handful of her costars at the show’s wrap party, including Matt Walsh, Anna Chlumsky, Sam Richardson and more.

“I’m going to miss these people more than I can express,” she wrote. “Actually I already do miss them. I’m gutted.”

It’s been a long year for Louis-Dreyfus, who went public with the news that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2017.

In October, Louis-Dreyfus opened up about beating the disease and returning to the series, which postponed filming while she underwent cancer treatment.

“First and foremost, we had stalled Veep production because of my situation,” she said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “A lot of people worked for me, so I knew I really couldn’t keep it private because I had to tell everybody what was going on.”

Through the experience, Louis-Dreyfus said her eyes were opened as to the importance of affordable health care.

“I think it’s an important conversation to have about health and health care,” she said. “I very much considered the notion that as someone battling this disease, the idea that I might not have health insurance, which I do thanks to my great union, is completely terrifying.”
