Dawnn Lewis (“iZombie”) has joined Hulu’s eight-episode revival of “Veronica Mars,” the acclaimed Kristen Bell-led drama series which ran from 2004-2007. Said revival is currently filming in Los Angeles.
Creator Rob Thomas pens the first episode of the revival in which spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s tourist industry.
After Mars Investigations is hired by a pair of grieving parents to find the killer, Veronica (Bell) is drawn into an epic mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elite locals glad to see the tourists depart vs. the working class who relies on the cash influx.
Lewis will play the pivotal recurring role of Marcia Langdon, the new police chief. Returning faces include Enrico Colantoni (Keith) Jason Dohring (Logan), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Francis Capra (Weevil), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas) and David Starzyk (Richard Casablancas).
