Calling all marshmallows! The day you've been waiting for has finally arrived: A "Veronica Mars" reboot is in the works at Hulu. This is not a drill.
According to several outlets, a new season of the cult-hit mystery show is pretty close to a deal with the streaming service. Warner Bros. and Hulu have been quietly in cahoots for months trying to make this happen, so most details are still unknown. But that just makes us more excited!
The original series followed Veronica, a California teen sleuth, after her friend was murdered and her father was removed as sheriff.
She dedicated herself to solving the mysterious crimes in the town of Neptune.
The show spent two seasons on UPN from 2004 to 2006, and had one more season on The CW before being canceled. Then, thanks to its dedicated fans, "Veronica Mars" was revived in film-form via crowdfunding in 2014.
Thomas and Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign for a feature film, and with a $2 million goal, they received a whopping $5.7 million. The movie was released in 2014, making it one of the very first reboots of the modern era.
The 2014 revival tied together a lot of loose ends, and fans loved it!
Oh, and it featured most of the original cast, plus cameos from Jamie Lee Curtis, James Franco, Max Greenfield, and Bell's IRL husband, Dax Shepard.
Bell previously told E! News that if they remade the show, she'd want it to center on a "kickass mystery" that would make Veronica Mars "the first name in female detectives."
"If we get to do it again … I think the way to make it survive is to — if the movie was kind of a love letter to the fans, anything that comes from now on, I think, is going to be about the kickass mystery … If we get to do it again, that's what I want to deliver. I want to make Veronica the first name in female detectives. I have no designs on supplanting Sherlock Holmes, but I would really love Veronica Mars to be—when I think female detectives, that's who I think of," she told them.
Ironically, the one person who could solve the mystery of this revival is Mars herself.
But for now, we must wait.
