Welcome back to Neptune....
Cult TV show Veronica Mars is reportedly set for a revival, 11 years after the show’s final episode aired.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, streaming service Hulu is closing in on a deal to bring back the show – along with Kristen Bell as the eponymous teen detective. It’s also believed that they have secured the involvement of creator Rob Thomas.
However, a potential stumbling block could come in the form of Bell’s busy schedule – filming on The Good Place could see a revival being constrained to a limited series.
Despite ending in 2007, Veronica Mars returned for a big-screen debut in 2014 which was backed through Kickstarter, achieving $5 million in a single month.
The show debuted in 2005 and followed the adventures of Bell’s eponymous teen detective, who would team up with her private detective father to solve crimes around their sleepy town.
Although Bell is expected to return, it’s unclear if the rest of the cast will make a comeback too.
Meanwhile, The Good Place will return for its third season on Netflix next month.
Earlier this year, creator Mike Schur cleared up the uncertainty surrounding the end of Season 2, after some of the show’s lead characters were transported back into the moment they died, saving them from their deaths to determine whether or not they were really capable of becoming good people in real life.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, creator Mike Schur said: “Normally I don’t like to just flatly state what’s going on, but here I don’t see the benefit of people experiencing ambiguity: The four of them are straight-up back on Earth, in a new timeline where they didn’t die”
