A long time ago, or what felt like a long time ago is finally coming back to TV. Veronica Mars graced our screens back in 2004 when Kristen Bell played character Veronica Mars who was acting as a private investigator even though she didn’t have the official credentials, all while juggling high school.
The show ended sadly after 3 seasons and fans were left feeling incomplete. Fast forward to March 2013, when a Kickstarter was launched by Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas after Warner Bros. opted not to fund the Veronica Mars Movie, but everything worked out after the Kickstarter raised more than $2 million in less than 11 hours after being launched and eventually accumulated a total of $5.7 million. This put the movie into full motion and by March 2014 it was released, giving fans what they wanted most.
Now here we are 4 years later after a circulation of rumors earlier this year about a Veronica Mars reboot. Since we’re in the age of reboots and with many shows being redone, including Charmed which premieres next month in October, it was easy to believe this would be true. Once again giving fans more of what they craved.
Hulu recently confirmed, there will be an eight-episode revival of the series coming back in 2019. Thomas is giving little sneak peaks about who will be coming back, after taking to Twitter on September 24 to announce some of the booked cast, which includes, none other than Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Jason Dohring (Logan), Francis Capra (Weevil), David Starzyk (Richard Casablancas), and veronica’s partner in crime, Percy Daggs III (Wallace). Thomas also included in his tweet that he swears there’s more to come and we sure hope that’s true.
Here’s who we have booked for the #VeronicaMars series, so far. (More are on the way, I swear.) @jason_dohring, @franciscapra, @PD3Official, @dstarzyk, and, of course, @IMKristenBell.

I was a fan of the series and I’ve watched the movie more than once, hoping that Logan and Veronica would rekindle the affection they shared for each other and by the end of the movie, I got my wish (well kind of), since the status of their relationship was left on another cliffhanger. We can only hope and pray that Logan and Veronica will become official and the show will get the ending it deserved 11 years ago.
