Kristen Bell says a Veronica Mars miniseries is “going to happen”

The original series ended seven years ago – but Bell is keen to revisit her role as the cult detective

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”.
