After seven years of petitioning, the prayers of Veronica Mars fans have finally been answered.
The sassy, super-sleuth has made her big screen debut in the much-anticipated movie, but don’t go thinking this is the last we’ll see of Veronica Mars and her long-range camera lens.
No spoilers, but the end of the film definitely leaves us with scope for a spin-off or a sequel. Many, in fact. The more we think about it, the more we reckon a return to the small-screen might be in order.
And we’re not the only ones.
We caught up with star of the show Kristen Bell and the film’s director Rob Thomas to talk the future of the super sleuth, and they are very much in agreement with us.
Thomas, who set up the original Kickstarter campaign to get this much-anticipated movie made, told us: “If the movie does well, I think as long as Kristen wants to do it, I’ll keep wanting to make them… Hopefully there will be more.”
And we’ve got good news, Rob. Kristen is definitely on board. In fact, she told us, she “would love to revive it as a TV show.”
“I don’t think this is the last we’ll see of Veronica – I certainly hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of Veronica,” she said, speaking to RadioTimes.com. “I would play Veronica if it was in my kitchen for my coffee maker in the morning.”
“I would do it again as a movie and if the time came where I wasn’t already obligated to a TV show, I would love to revive it as a TV show,” she added.
