Release Date, Cast, Recap, Hulu, Renewed
‘Veronica Mars’ is a crime series, created by Rob Thomas, that originally aired on The CW. Starring Kristen Bell, it follows the story of a teenager who tries to solve various crimes in her hometown. The series received critical acclaim, especially for taking a different approach on teen dramas than its contemporaries and was nominated for several awards. After a run of three seasons, the show was cancelled. However, fundraising from the fans allowed the making of a film that was supposed to serve as a closure for the story. In the meantime, Thomas also wrote a series of novels, which serve as a canon.
Just when everyone thought that the world didn’t need Veronica Mars anymore, Hulu decided to revive the series. Thomas returns to his role as the writer, along with Diane Ruggiero-Wright, Heather V. Regnier, David Walpert, Raymond Obstfeld and Kareen Abdul-Jabbar. Ruggiero-Wright also executive produces the series with Dan Etheridge.
