The series, which will see the return of Kristen Bell as the title character, will consist of 8 episodes and is slated to debut in 2019. Bell made the official announcement Thursday on Instagram, which can be seen below. News of the revival first broke in August.
As part of the deal, Hulu has also struck an agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for the SVOD rights to all past episodes of the original series. Seasons 1-3, as well as the 2014 feature film, will be available to stream next summer.
In the new installment, spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into a mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
This makes me so happy. I love Veronica Mars and am so excited to see it return.
Fingers crossed that they can get most of the cast back. I even want to see Piz again, whom I thought was a better love interest than Logan. Sacrilege, I know.
I am curious whether this new series will reference the novels or not. Two novels were published after the release of the movie and tied up a lot of the loose ends from the movie.
Again, I am just so excited! I can't wait to see this.
