'Veronica Mars' Revival With Kristen Bell in the Works at Hulu
A revival series from original creator Rob Thomas, which would once again feature Bell in the title role, is close to receiving the greenlight from Hulu, noted The Hollywood Reporter.
The actress admits she's in 'constant contact' with 'Mars' creator Rob Thomas.
Veronica Mars, which followed a teenaged private investigator, aired for two seasons on UPN in 2004 before a third and final season aired on The CW. Thomas then directed a 2014 feature film that was funded through Kickstarter. The film featured Bell solving a murder mystery after returning home for her high-school reunion.
Plus, RuPaul Charles lands a Netflix series.
The series — which also spawned two books co-written by Thomas and Jennifer Graham — also starred Jason Dohring, Teddy Dunn, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, and Ryan Hansen who all returned for the film.
