In the upcoming episode, Meyer's staff will be seen trying to frantically work out a better speech that will allow her to say two completely opposite things at the same time, with only 24 hours left to go for D-Day.

The new US president will also been seen juggling between a lot of duties in season 4 and fans are sure waiting to know how her character will flow hereon.

"This season, she relishes the new power. Who wouldn't? It's not like she has gotten a bigger opportunity to affect change," Veep creator Armando Iannucci told Hollywood Reporter.

"I wouldn't say she's corrupted by it. She's not a corrupt person. She has a set of moral principles she wants to adhere to, a set of beliefs. But what you'll see is her working out what the limitations are of that power, the frustrations. I think you can be a prisoner of the office and also be liberated by being president," he added.

The biting political comedy from HBO is a critic favourite and won the Emmy in 2013 in the outstanding comedy series category.

The premiere synopsis via Broad Way World reads: "Gary questions his worth now that he can no longer be close to Selina; Jonah is put off by the approach of Teddy, the new VP's chief of staff; Amy learns that Bill Ericsson (Diederich Bader), a rival campaign manager, may make a play for her job."
