It's another TV series rebooted and we can't be happier!
The cult-classic feminist crime drama premiered in 2004 and continued for three seasons. It found a cult following on DVD before the streaming hype hit full volume, and in 2013, creator Rob Thomas, star Kristen Bell, and others banded together to launch a Kicksarter campaign to follow it up with a feature film. That campaign raised $5.7 million compared to its target of $2 million and was, at the time, one of the most successful Kickstarters yet.
The series has sort of been dormant since then but last month there were rumours that it was going to come back and now those rumours have been confirmed!
The new season will air in 2019, and Kristen Bell will reprise her role. The season will run for eight episodes.
When it premiered 14 years ago, Veronica Mars tackled a number of issues that would come to be key talking points for our era: income inequality, immigration, sexual assault, technology and privacy, startups and social accountability, and more. So it seems well suited for a comeback.
