Veronica Mars is an American teen noir mystery drama television created by screenwriter Rob Thomas.
Veronica Mars is a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father. In each episode, Veronica solves a different stand-alone case while working to solve a more complex mystery. The first two seasons each had a season-long mystery arc, introduced in the first episode of each season and solves in the season finale. The third season took a different format, focusing on smaller mystery arcs that would last the course of several episodes.
Why It Was Cancelled Edit
In January 2007, Dawn Ostroff announced that, while pleased with the gradually improving ratings, the series would be put on hiatus after the February sweeps to air a new reality series, Pussycat Dolls Present. When the hiatus ended, the series returned for the last five episodes of the season. At the 2007 CW Upfront, Ostroff announced that the show was not part of the new primetime lineup and was not coming back.
Continuation and revival Edit
The series continued with a feature film of the same name released on March 14, 2014. This in turn was followed by a series of novels, which pick up after the events of the film. The first novel, Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, was published on March 25, 2014; the second novel, Veronica Mars: Mr. Kiss and Tell, followed on January 20, 2015.
On August 1, 2018, Hulu was reported to be planning an eight-episode revival of the show, with Kristen Bell and series creator Thomas returning. On September 20, 2018, Hulu confirmed the revival. Thomas confirmed the revival will take place five years after the events depicted in the film and novels. It was released in its entirety on July 19, 2019.
