Veronica Mars Is Definitely Coming Back To TV For A New Season
Long before she was sent to The Good Place, or lending her singing pipes to Disney's Frozen, Kristen Bell was the spunky, sarcastic California detective Veronica Mars on the quirky series of the same name. Veronica Mars was beloved, but low-rated, and it fought to air for three seasons, mainly because its devoted followers -- self-proclaimed Marshmallows -- scratched and clawed to spend more time in the fictional town of Neptune with Bell's character. There was a movie, and a rumor about a revival, but now we can report that the rumor is true, and Veronica Mars season four is coming to Hulu.
It has been revealed in an official press release that Hulu has ordered eight new episodes of Veronica Mars from Warner Bros. Television that will be part of Hulu's Original Slate for 2019. There's no date given for the debut of the series, though my guess would be fall, because Hulu notes that fans can start catching up with the first three seasons of Veronica Mars, as well as the Mars movie, in Summer 2019.
This fact is confirmed by the delightful Kristen Bell on her social media, so why don't we just let her give the message to all the Marshmallows out there:
But what, on Earth, could the new Veronica Mars be about? Kristen Bell, now 38, is a long way off from playing the high-schooler or college kid moonlighting as a private detective for her father. With the news release comes a plot logline, and Hulu says the show will focus on this:
Sounds like its Veronica against the 09ers, once again! Which is great. The third season of Veronica Mars got away from the season-stretching larger mystery, but with Hulu giving Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas a tight 8-episode window, we can hope for a lean and mean revival that will satisfy fans.
So, the wait is now on for new Veronica Mars episodes, but at least fans know that Hulu will soon have all three seasons and that movie to tide them over starting in the Summer of 2019. What do you think of this news? Exciting? Too little too late? Let us know in the comments section below.
