Enrico Colantoni will reprise his series regular role of Keith Mars, father of Veronica (Kristen Bell), in the upcoming eight-episode limited series revival of Hulu’s “Veronica Mars” series which will premiere in 2019.
Creator Rob Thomas pens the first episode 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.
Colantoni co-starred on the original series for its entire three-season run from 2004-2007 and was involved in the 2014 Kickstarter film. Thomas executive produces the new episodes with Bell, Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Dan Etheridge.
