According to new reports, Veronica Mars is being revived by Hulu! The beloved show that only aired from 2004 to 2007 is apparently returning for just eight episodes but it’s definitely more than the fans and production could have hoped.
E! News reported via a source that the revival is already in the works.
Not only that but the insider also tells the outlet that Kristen Bell is set to return as the titular character.
Rob Thomas, the original creator, is in control of the limited series on Hulu as well.
He and Bell have said in the past that they would totally work on a revival for the classic Veronica Mars TV show.
‘We’re still working on it. We’re hopeful. Yeah. It’s just finding the window where she’s available and I’m available is part of the trick and yeah, but spiritually we’re still very into it,’ Thomas told E! News.
He also assured the fans that Bell is all for being part of the project.
‘What I’m hoping for is that after I retire, some quality young writer wants to remake it and send me checks that’s the dream there. I cannot imagine doing it without Kristen in my whole professional lifetime. I mean, never say never, but I think if I am not doing it with Kristen, it means Kristen no longer wants to do it. And Kristen has said she is willing to do it until it is Murder, She Wrote. As long as she holds to that, I think I want to keep doing the Kristen Bell version, if there is an opportunity,’ he went on.
Last year, Bell also told the same outlet about the prospect of bringing back Veronica Mars that ‘In my world there is. I mean, I’m going to be blunt: It’s tough, for a variety of reasons I can’t get into, but, Rob and I are trying, and we will continue to try.’
It looks like they finally made it a reality! Are you excited to watch the revival?
