On Twitter, people are asking if the episode was actually a series finale. Does that surprise you?
We always knew we wanted to do more, but I guess it was always the opportunity that if HBO hated what we did and if this was the end forever, it would have been a great way to go out. The fact that now you go: What is the show? That’s the fun part. We have a rich tradition in this country of the post-presidency of a lot of really interesting presidents. Starting with Nixon and his attempts at rehabilitation to some humanitarian work that Jimmy Carter has done and obviously Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Is she going to have a library?

DEADLINE: Where are you on Season 6? Will we see more of Hugh Laurie’s scheming almost Veep and almost POTUS Tom James? He and Julia were so ripping together…
MANDEL: Literally, the finale just aired, and the writers will start on Monday, the next day. So we’re just starting to get together.
I will say, I go into the season saying everybody is fair game, from Tom James to people we haven’t seen this last season. They’re all fair game. It’s all about the ideas. Great lines win. Great ideas win. If we come up with a great idea, you will absolutely see Tom James, but again, we’re not going to parade him out to parade him out. I think the relationship that they had, I think the season that they had, it would sully it. It would piss on it to just bring him back to bring him back. So it’s just something I don’t want to rush into.
