They also hint at what's ahead for Amy and Dan in the final episodes.

Seehorn will have a multi-episode arc as Michelle, the chief of staff of one of Selina Meyer's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) rival candidates. Executive producer David Mandel likened the character to Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky).

"She can be very tense and is very devoted to her candidate," Mandel said.

McKean, meanwhile, will portray the governor of Iowa in one episode. Mandel said the character takes advantage of his state's importance in the election cycle.

"People are coming in and wanting his endorsement for the presidency," the producer said, "and he's trying to figure out what that can get him."

In addition, Review creator Andy Daly will guest star in several episodes as Keith, an upbeat campaign manager who joins Selina's team. Key & Peele creator Keegan-Michael Key will play an influential reverend in South Carolina.

Daly confirmed his casting in a Facebook post Monday.

"Me on TV alert: I'm in the new season of Veep! Coming to HBO 3/31," the actor wrote.

Veep released a first Season 7 trailer in February showing Selina on the campaign trail. The series returns March 31 and co-stars Timothy Simon, Brian Huskey, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole and Tony Hale.
