Another cult favorite television series is set to get a revival.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Veronica Mars is coming back for another season on Hulu, with original creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell set to return. While there is plenty that remains unknown about the deal, it's been reported Hulu and Warner Bros. have quietly been in talks to revive the series for months now.
Bell, who has been vocal about her interest in returning to the titular role in the past, currently stars in NBC's critically-acclaimed The Good Place. The series recently wrapped production on its third season, and should it go forward with a fourth, it's expected that Bell will be able to work on both Veronica Mars and The Good Place without conflict. As it stands, it remains to be seen just how many episodes the revival will consist of or which original cast members will return to join Bell for the project.
The news is sure to be a shock for marshmallows, as Bell and Thomas have continually spoken about their interest in bringing the fan-favorite sleuth back, the chances appeared slim following the feature film's modest $3 million worldwide haul at the box office. Thomas previously suggested should the series return, it could do so as a limited run series, ala HBO's True Detective.
"Kristen and I have talked about a second movie or trying to take it out as a short-run series–like, a ‘Veronica Mars’/ ‘True Detective’ is really appealing to us," Thomas said during an interview at the 2015 Comic-Con International.
Veronica Mars first premiere in 2004 and ran for two seasons on UPN before finishing its run with a final season on The CW. Since then, the cast has returned for a feature film -- which was initially funded via Kickstarter in 2014-- and have gone on to appear in the webseries Play it Again, Dick, which aired on CW Seed.
