Updated September 20: Veronica Mars will officially be revived at Hulu with star Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas on board.
Along with news that the series has been picked up, Hulu released an official synopsis for the revival, which reads "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 an epic eight-episode 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."
The new Veronica Mars is scheduled to premiere on Hulu in summer 2019.
Original story: Star Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas are in talks to return for a new Veronica Mars series at Hulu, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The Hollywood trade reports that Thomas and Bell have been in talks for the revival "for months," though no series length or other details were reported.
The purported terms of the revival would allow Bell to continue starring in her NBC sitcom The Good Place.
Veronica Mars originally ran for three seasons on CW, from 2004 to 2007, with a Kickstarter-funded follow-up movie released in 2014.
No timeframe for the revival was reported.
