Great news, marshmallows! The Veronica Mars cast has come together for the first table read of the upcoming eight-episode revival, which is scheduled to hit Hulu in 2019.
Series creator Rob Thomas posted a photo of the assembled actors to Twitter, adding that the picture would give fans an idea about who they can expect to see in Veronica Mars' first episode. Shown in the photo were several of the series stars, including Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell; Jason Dohring, who portrays Veronica's on-again, off-again boyfriend, Logan; Enrico Colantoni, who plays Veronica's dad, Keith Mars; Percy Daggs III, who depicts Veronica's bestie, Wallace; Daran Norris, who appeared as public defender Cliff McCormack; and David Starzyk, who guested as Richard Casablancas. Also pictured are Dawnn Lewis, Izabela Vidovic, Clifton Collins Jr. and Patton Oswalt, who will play new characters.
From the #VeronicaMars table read. This is some indication of who is in episode 1. It doesn't mean your fave doesn't come in later. @IMKristenBell @PD3Official @golfstoomuch @jason_dohring @dawnn_lewis @pattonoswalt @ricocolantoni @IzabelaVidovic @ccollinsjr @dstarzyk pic.twitter.com/3dlrVlykqK— Rob Thomas (@RobThomas) November 14, 2018
Thomas also cautioned that even if an actor isn't shown in the photo or doesn't appear in the first episode, it doesn't mean their character won't appear in the show eventually.
Veronica Mars has been a cult favorite ever since it debuted in 2004. While its broadcast run was short, lasting just three seasons, fans have remained loyal to the series. They even helped fund a 2014 feature film via a Kickstarter campaign. In addition, through the years, series lead Bell and Thomas have remained vocal about their interest in returning to the series.
The photo shows that everyone will be getting their wish for more Veronica Mars soon.
