Creator Rob Thomas said on the season three DVD extras that Ryan Hansen's character Dick Casablancas was not originally meant to be a series regular. He was first cast for the second episode, as a nameless, rich Neptune resident with one line ("Logan!"). Thomas said that they read many young actors for the line, and when it came down to a choice between Hansen or another actor, they cast Hansen purely because he had "good hair".

The network told Rob Thomas in advance that season three was probably going to be the last of the show, so he could have the opportunity to wrap up the series. Thomas got so angry at them that he wrote the season finale as an anti-finale. In retrospect, he has said he doesn't regret it because they could not have made the movie if the show had had a proper ending.

In an attempt to keep the struggling show on the air after its third season, Creator Rob Thomas filmed an extended pitch for the fourth season that advances the show's timeline considerably. Instead of being a college undergraduate, as she was at the end of season three, in the speculative season four, Veronica (Kristen Bell) has graduated from college and the F.B.I. Academy and is starting her first day as an F.B.I. Agent. The pitch contained a whole new cast of heretofore unseen characters, and, except for Veronica herself, none of the characters from the show's previous seasons. The CW failed to pick up this new version of "Veronica Mars", and the show was cancelled.

In an attempt to keep the struggling show on the air after its third season, creator Rob Thomas filmed an extended pitch for the fourth season that advances the show's timeline considerably. Instead of being a college undergraduate, as she was at the end of season three, in the spec season four, Veronica (Kristen Bell) has graduated from college and the FBI Academy and is starting her first day as a FBI agent. Although the pitch contained (except for Veronica) a whole new cast of heretofore unseen characters (and therefore actors), one of the new characters was a fellow FBI agent played by Adam Kaufman. This was a completely different character from the one-off appearance he made in the first season.

Rob Thomas had originally wanted a very middle-American dad to play against the wealthy beach town folk of Neptune and included a line in the original pilot script in which Keith (Enrico Colantoni) talked about driving around Omaha as a 20-year-old. The line was changed to driving around Schenectady after Enrico was cast, as Thomas didn't think did look very Nebraskan. The Schenectady line did not appear in the finished pilot, however, and years later the original Omaha line was included as part of the second Veronica Mars book, Mr. Kiss and Tell.

After the end of season two, television critic Alan Sepinwall asked Rob Thomas which elements revealed in the finale were planned ahead, and Thomas replied, "We knew that Beaver was the killer of season two when we introduced him in season one. We knew his motivation, so playing him as the picked-upon, less-manly Casablancas boy was all by design." But Thomas also told Sepinwall that they did not plan for the eventual reveal that Cassidy (Kyle Gallner) had raped Veronica (Kristen Bell), until the writing for season one was all finished.

In the scenes, Mac is in Wallace's (Percy Daggs III) class and is visibly uncomfortable with one of the students in the class. While studying together, Wallace puts his arm around her, and she stiffens, telling him "It's not you." Later, Wallace confronts the student from their class, only to discover that the boy's interest in Mac is platonic, wanting to reunite with her as they used to go to computer camp together. In the final scene, Mac references that another student from her Comm class makes her uncomfortable. Wallace quietly realises that all of these events are due to the aftermath of her relationship with Cassidy Casablancas (Kyle Gallner).
