Star of Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell, has said that a limited series for the property is “going to happen.”
The show Veronica Mars has a passionate fan base, and this was instrumental in bringing the series back in the form of a feature film in 2014. The movie was fan funded, amassing a budget of $6 million but didn’t fair too well at the box office.
So while there won’t be a Veronica Mars sequel film anytime soon, Kristen Bell is all on board for a limited series return along with series creator Rob Thomas.
There are numerous scheduling difficulties in the way with Bell working on the series The Good Place and Thomas the showrunner on iZombie, but Bell is optimistic, telling Indiewire:
“We are willing to put the effort in — I mean, if I have to do it as Murder She Wrote at 80, we’re going to do it. It’s going to happen.
“You can’t do two television shows at the same time. So we’d have to do like a miniseries. Rob and I email about it every couple of months or so. And personally I think, and I think Rob probably agrees, is that a) we’ll never make the fans pay for it again and b) the format works better as an episodic [series].”
