The Veronica Mars reboot might look and feel a lot different from the original, warns Kristen Bell. The actress recently told fans that they should “brace themselves” for a darker mystery and one that has a larger scope.
“It’s gonna be a much darker world, it’s going to be a bigger world,” Bell teased.
Bell opened up about the new season of Veronica Mars during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Along with a darker story, Bell revealed that the reboot is unlike anything they have done in the past and feels more cinematic than previous renditions.

It is unclear exactly what that means, but it is clear that fans are in for quite a surprise when the show returns.
Bell also addressed the timing of the reboot and if it was a good idea to bring in back. The Good Place star believes people want to watch a female character fight for what is right and root for a hero without conventional superpowers, who gets by with a quick wit and smarts.
Given the cult following the series has amassed over the years, it is a safe bet that reviving the series was a good move.
In additional to Bell’s comments, the show’s creator Rob Thomas recently revealed who will be writing the new season of Veronica Mars. Among the writers for the new is none other than NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who Thomas assured fans is really writing for the show.

“And yes, if you’re brilliant and give yourself a #PartyDown Twitter handle, I’ll hire you,” Thomas added.
We do not know how Abdul-Jabbar will turn out as a writer, but he certainly has the Hollywood credentials to try just about anything out. Here’s to hoping it pans out.
The new season of Veronica Mars is slated to premiere sometime in 2019 on Hulu.
