Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a cast member in the HBO series "Veep", poses at an Emmy For Your Consideration event for the show at the Television Academy, on Thursday, May 25, 2017, in Los Angeles.

"The good news", she added, was she had a "glorious group" of family and friends supporting her and "fantastic" insurance through her union. It had no bearing in the decision to renew "Veep" for a final season. "We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep".

The news comes on the heels of what has been a triumphant year for Louis-Dreyfus. She has won 11 Emmy Awards for acting and producing.
