The Comic-Con panel for next week’s “Veronica Mars” eight-episode revival on Hulu had a big surprise at the end – that upcoming fourth season of the series has gone live – now.
The new season will be available to stream on Hulu from today, as opposed to the originally planned July 26th premiere. The announcement followed the debut episode being screened for a packed out hall.
Actress Kristen Bell says she’s willing to keep playing the role as long as she can: “I’ll play Veronica until everyone in Neptune is dead.” In fact, both Bell and creator Rob Thomas revealed that they feel this is only the midpoint in her story. Thomas saying:
“I think of this as the bridge to whatever version of ‘Veronica Mars’ comes next. There are personal life things that fans of the show want to see, and if we just stripped it, people might have felt let-down. This one is trying to steer them in the direction of the mystery becoming more of the lifeblood of the show.”
J.K. Simmons and Patton Oswalt join the likes of returning regulars like Jason Dohring and Enrico Colantoni in the new episodes.
