The murder of high-school student Lilly Kane shook the seaside town of Neptune, California to the core. For once popular girl Veronica Mars, it meant the loss of her best friend and being ousted from the affluent crowd that she once thought were her friends. Her father, Sheriff Keith Mars, found himself voted out of his job after making some unpopular accusations about the murdered girl's family. In response, Keith opened his own private detective agency. Now, Veronica, with her sardonic wit and a few new friends, works as his assistant while also navigating life as a high school (and later college) student. Written by L. Hamre

Did You Know?


After the second season, the show was picked up by The CW because UPN merged with The WB to form The CW. See more »


While Logan is editing the tribute video to Lilly, among the video clips is one that shows her as a little girl between the age of 5 and 7 at Legoland California. Legoland California wasn't in operation until 1999, which means that Lilly would had to have at been least 10 or 11 during the visit, making her too old to have appeared in the aforementioned clip.

Veronica: Great. Now I won't be able to sleep. I hope he doesn't try to marry me.

User Reviews

Excellent - Not your average UPN show
21 February 2005 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

The story of Veronica and her search for the truth in the spoiled and famous Nepture is far more compelling that your average UPN teen drama.

Real characters, complex situations and issues and topics beyond who is hooking up with whom. The detailed story arc might make it a bit challenging for new viewers to pick up the threads, but each episode stands alone.

Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars mixes, humour and pathos, into both complicated life and death issues and high school life. Just as Buffy was about more than surviving high school with a social life, Veronica Mars looks at real things with a sceptical eye and an ironic twist.
