Tina Majorino as Cindy ‘Mac’ Mackenzie

Apparently, the producers have been trying to get Majorino to reprise her role as Veronica’s tech-inclined pal to no avail. What aren’t you telling us, Tina? Is there a Napoleon Dynamite sequel? Is Scorpion being revived? Are you headed back to Grey’s Anatomy? (Oh, wait…)

Teddy Dunn as Duncan Kane

Duncan can’t stay Down Under forever, right? We would never want this ex of Veronica’s to get in the middle of her relationship with Logan, but we could use a status update. How is he getting on as a father, now that his daughter with the late Meg Manning is a pre-teen? Does he have any guilt about ordering the assassination of Aaron Echolls, or is he just glad that monster is dead?

Chris Lowell as Stosh ‘Piz’ Piznarski

Poor, sweet Piz. Veronica’s affable college boyfriend was but a rest stop on her journey back to Logan, but we still feel for the guy. Again, we’re not looking to break up the LoVe — instead, a still-spurned Piz could return to roast a certain Marshmallow.

Erica Gimpel as Alice Fennel

Wallace’s mom is still our favorite of Papa Mars’ love interests. Last seen in “Not Pictured,” Alice was… not pictured in all of Season 3 and the big-screen continuation. Let’s rectify that. (It’s not too weird if Wallace and Veronica become step-siblings, right?)

Tessa Thompson as Jackie Cook

Listen, Jackie did Wallace dirty during their high school romance, no doubt. But everyone deserves another chance, right? Maybe this time this “daughter of an NYC model” who “got into the Sorbonne” will finally stop telling fibs. Besides, the power of Tessa Thompson — now known for her roles in Westworld and Creed — will not be denied.

Amanda Seyfried as Lilly Kane

Oh, fine. Perhaps we’ve seen all the Lilly Kane flashbacks we need to see. But if the central mystery of this Hulu season triggers long-dormant memories from Veronica’s high school days with her dearly-departed best friend, so much the better. We’ll take as much Amanda Seyfried screen time as we can get.



Sure, he eats from the trash and brings Keith dead birds. And perhaps he mysteriously shape-shifts from a bulldog to a pitbull. But the Mars’ dog is the MVP of the family. Remember, you always take Backup!

Hulu is reviving the UPN-turned-CW neo-noir Veronica Mars for 2019, and in these months leading up to the show’s return, casting announcements have been coming fast and furious.

Kristen Bell is, of course, returning to play the titular private eye, joined by alums including Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Francis Capra (Weevil), and Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas). And along for the ride are comedian Patton Oswalt and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons.

But we’re still missing some notable Neptune residents, so consider this gallery to be our APB. Click through above for the actors and characters we’re still hoping to glimpse in the Hulu revival.
