Good news for Veronica Mars fans as Kristen Bell reveals that we haven’t seen the last of her detective on our screens.
When Bell’s co-star Ryan Hansen called her during an IndieWire Facebook Live to ask whether a revival for the cult favourite might be on the cards, she said: “It’s going to happen”.
“We are willing to put the effort in,” Bell said. “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.”
Veronica Mars was a drama which saw the titular lead cracking the toughest mysteries in her town of Neptune. It ran for three series from 2004 to 2007, and was revived in 2014 with a feature film crowdfunded by fans.
While there have been follow-up novels, there hasn’t been any official word on another on-screen adventure just yet.
Bell said that she and Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas “are sort of in constant contact about when we can do it again. There’s a lot of willingness and commitment to doing it again”.
However, Bell is currently starring in NBC’s The Good Place, and as she pointed out: “You can’t do two television shows at the same time. So we’d have to do like a miniseries”.
