Veronica Mars fans have already been blessed with one revival — in the case of Veronica Mars the movie in 2014 — and if it’s up to Kristen Bell, there will be more in the future!
This month, E! News sat down with Bell, who is currently the star of NBC’s The Good Place, to talk about her “Second Act” in Hollywood, and while she is focused on her current comedy and another Frozen film, Bell hasn’t given up hope for more of her beloved sleuth character, Veronica Mars.
“In my world there is,” Bell told E! News when asked if there was a future for the character and series. “I mean, I’m going to be blunt: It’s tough, for a variety of reasons I can’t get into, but, Rob and I are trying and we will continue to try.”
As of right now it is just talk, but Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is also a fan of reviving the series someday, so it really could become a reality in the future.
“We’re biding our time, but we have an idea for what we want to do and we’re eager to do,” Thomas told E! News about the franchise’s next steps. “Yeah, we’re both right now in a little bit of heartbreak because we thought we were so close, but that’s Hollywood.”
The good news is that Bell will always love the show, even if it’s currently not being worked on, so she’ll be ready to get back to detective work whenever the timing does line up.
“Veronica Mars was very, very special because she was somewhat of a superhero outcast. It’s very, very difficult to write someone with all of those qualities, as layered as she was,” Bell said about her iconic character. “I think maybe it’s just that I’ve never found anything like her since. She was incredibly unique.”
Okay Veronica Mars fans, are you ready for more from the TV series? Let us know in the comments below!
