There Is Life In Mars
Veronica Mars is back this year and here’s Hulu’s video revealing when we shall be seeing it…
After years of rumours, Kristen Bell has confirmed that Veronica Mars – the fan-favourite TV series that starred her as a teen sleuth – is returning to screens, following a successful crowdsourced movie in 2014 that itself followed the main series’ own cancellation in 2007.
Specifically, Veronica Mars is returning for eight one-hour episodes on US streaming platform Hulu (best known for making the critically-acclaimed Handmaid’s Tale), alongside all the earlier episodes of the TV series for a 2019 premiere date.
Bell actually confirmed the news on her Twitter account with a short video. The key thing to glean from this is the bit at the end where she says “We’re making another one!”, while elsewhere a new synopsis for the series was released by Hulu describing the new challenges facing the fictional town on Neptune in the new series.

Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.”
At the moment it’s unclear whether UK viewers will be able to see it over here, as unlike most other streaming services Hulu currently has no presence in the British market.
