Fan-favorite crime series Veronica Mars returns for an all-new revival miniseries next month on Hulu but don't necessarily expect for a future beyond its upcoming eight episodes continuing the adventures of its titular crime-fighter.
While appearing the ATX Television Festival in Austin over the weekend, series creator and showrunner Rob Thomas appeared with several cast members to discuss the revival miniseries. When asked if there was more planned for the quirky series, Thomas remained coy if the eight episodes would provide a definitive end or room to continue.
"I feel like by saying that, you assume Veronica survives these 8 episodes," teased Thomas. "So don’t get comfortable.”
After airing on UPN as it morphed into The CW, the series was canceled after three seasons and revived for a feature film continuation in 2014, largely crowdfunded by fans. The upcoming Hulu revival will see the eponymous sleuth investigate a string of serial killer attacks on tourists in her Southern California hometown of Neptune.
Veronica Mars is created by Rob Thomas and stars Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen, Max Greenfield, Ken Marino, Daran Norris, David Starzyk, Adam Rose and Ryan Devlin. All eight episodes will premiere on Hulu on July 26.
