Heads Up, Marshmallows! A Veronica Mars Revival Could Be On Its Way
"A long time ago, we used to be friends but I haven't talked to you lately at all . . ."
Let me set the scene for you: the year is 2014, I'm a student, hellbent on convincing my friends of a few months to watch just one episode of my favourite show, Veronica Mars. We huddled together on my bed, surrounded by vending machine snacks, with my laptop propped up by textbooks and my WiFi connection holding on by a prayer. Somehow, three whole weeks go by, and we've watched the early 2000s cult classic every single night, binging all three seasons and the Kickstarter-funded film revival together.
Fast forward four years to when I heard that Hulu's in the midst of striking a deal to bring Veronica Mars back to life. You could say I was um . . . mildly excited. In what seems like the heyday of television revivals and nostalgia, it feels as if the V Mars feature film may have been ahead of its time, and an extended series return could be exactly what fans deserve even if only for a few episodes (eight, to be exact).
After teasing the idea of a miniseries, it's reported series creator Rob Thomas will once again take the helm on this revival, with Kristen Bell signed on to star, because what would the show be without its badass namesake? Luckily, Bell's involvement will not interfere with her other hit show The Good Place, since it's third season has already wrapped production. Seems like all the pieces are falling into place, and my teenage self could not be happier.
Check out more reactions from excited Marshmallows, ahead. Fingers crossed this reboot becomes a reality, and if it does, that a streaming network in the UK picks it up (or Hulu finally makes its way across the Pond).
