‘Veronica Mars’ Revival Miniseries Close to a Deal at Hulu

Whether in Neptune, New York, or somewhere else entirely, it looks like “Veronica Mars” is on its way back again. This time, Hulu is the intended destination for a miniseries that will continue the character’s story, with star Kristen Bell and writer/creator Rob Thomas returning in their respective roles.

Rumblings of a new chapter in the “Veronica Mars” saga have never fully died down, even after the 2014 movie that picked up where the series left off. Last fall, cub reporter Ryan Hansen broke the news in an IndieWire Facebook Live conversation that a miniseries was in the works.

Sources tell Variety that a revival of the series is currently in the works at Hulu with original series star Kristen Bell poised to return as the titular detective and original series creator Rob Thomas serving as writer. Warner Bros. Television, which produced the original series, would be the studio. Sources caution, however, that the deal for the series is not yet final. It is also unknown if any other original series stars besides Bell would return or what the plot of the series would be.

Among the matters complicating the deal is that Bell currently stars in the hit NBC comedy “The Good Place.” Should the “Veronica Mars” project move forward, it would need to shoot around her schedule for the latter show, meaning it would likely be a limited series consisting of eight to ten episodes.
