Veronica Mars Gets a Reboot from Hulu
Last September, Marshmallows rejoiced when actress Kristen Bell shared that Hulu would be reviving “Veronica Mars.”
The series, which aired in 2004 on the now-defunct UPN, followed Veronica Mars (Bell), a teenage private investigator who uses savvy and smarts to solved crimes throughout her high school as well as her class-divided hometown of Neptune, California.
For years after the show’s cancellation in 2007, fans begged creator Rob Thomas to bring the show back, whether it was as a web series or a movie. He and Bell granted their wish in 2013 by launching a Kickstarter to fund a film version of the beloved series. Fans managed to raise the required $2 million in 12 hours, allowing Thomas and Co. to bring the TV show to the big screen in 2014.
So it only makes sense that Hulu would want to take advantage of the fandom and bring the series back, even if just for a limited time. As more information rolls in, we’re taking a closer look at everything we know about the upcoming “Veronica Mars” revival. Here’s what Marshmallows can expect when the show returns.
Several familiar faces will return to the series, as well as some new, but well-known names
Bell, who’s reprising her role as the snarky (but closeted softy) Veronica Mars, will be joined by several former cast members. According to The Hollywood Reporter, series regulars Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Francis Capra (Eli “Weevil” Navarro), Leo D’Amato (Max Greenfield), and Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars) will all appear on the Hulu revival. David Starzyk and Ryan Hansen will also be reprising their roles as Richard Casablancas Sr. and Jr., respectively.
Most recently, TheWrap confirmed that Ken Mariano would return to “Veronica Mars” as a rival private investigator, Vincent “Vinnie” Van Lowe.
