Kristen Bell Says a VERONICA MARS Miniseries is Totally Happening

Holy doodle, Marshmallows, this is an exciting development, isn’t it? The saga of everyone’s favorite undercover detective from Neptune, California—Veronica Mars—will apparently get itself a new miniseries if Kristen Bell has her way. The star of the fan-favorite teen mystery series is hellbent on bringing a new iteration of V. Mars to the small screen, even if she has to Murder She Wrote it.

In an interview with IndieWire, Bell discussed the situation after her friend and co-star Ryan Hansen (who was ALSO on Nerdist News Talks Back the same day!) called her in the middle of a Facebook Live discussion to ask the question on everyone’s lips. Thankfully, Bell had exactly the sort of response we like to hear.

“We are willing to put the effort in — 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.” She went on to add that creator Rob Thomas and she “email about it every couple of months or so. And personally, I think, and I think Rob probably agrees, is that a.) we’ll never make the fans pay for it again and b.) the format works better as an episodic [series].”

To be honest, Veronica Mars definitely gives us some Jessica Fletcher, Young Millennial vibes so we’re not opposed to this prospect by ANY stretch, though we do obviously hope it doesn’t take that long for us to get more Veronica Mars.

We actually asked Hansen during Nerdist News Talks Back about the inclusion of references and guest stars from old, fan-favorite series in current projects (like his new YouTube Red series Ryan Hansen Solves Crime on Television*) as a way to gauge interest in reboots and revisits. And, wouldn’t you know, that’s definitely part of the deal.

But don’t just take our word for it, watch Hansen discuss it yourself!
