Kristen Bell Confirms Veronica Mars Revival Is Coming to Hulu

Kristen Bell Confirms Veronica Mars Revival Is Coming to Hulu

The rumours of a second revival are indeed true! Kristen Bell announced on Twitter on Thursday (September 20) that streaming service Hulu has ordered an eight-episode miniseries to premiere in the US next year.

This is a very important marshmallow announcement,” she explained to her followers in a personal video. “Did you guys know that as of summer 2019, all the old Veronica Mars episodes will be available on Hula to stream and re-watch, which is great because you’ll need to brush up since we’re making another one.

Veronica has always been a super hero without a Cape. And I think she’s exactly what the world needs right now,Kristen explained on Instagram. “Thank you to all my fellow marshmallows who stayed excited.

Thank you to @hulu for the opportunity,” she continued. “I hope we’re all still friends after I taser you.

According to Hulu, the new limited series is focused on spring breakers 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.

The original series ran on UPN (before turning into The CW) for three seasons between 2004 and 2007.

Deadline – Rob Thomas’ cult favorite noir mystery drama Veronica Mars starring Kristen Bell is making another comeback, this time as an eight-episode limited series at Hulu.

I hear the streaming platform is finalizing deals for the new installment, with star Bell set to reprise her role as sleuth Veronica Mars. I hear there have been preliminary conversations about bringing back a number of the other cast members from the original series and follow-up movie.

Doing Veronica Mars is not going to interfere with Bell’s duties as star of the NBC comedy series The Good Place.

As he has done with all things Veronica Mars-related, Thomas is said to be shepherding the project through Warner Horizon TV, the cable/streaming division of Warner Bros TV, which produced the original series. Reps for Hulu and WBTV declined comment.

Created by Thomas, Veronica Mars was a critical darling and developed a devoted following during its three-season run from 2004-2007 on UPN and then on the CW.

Fueled by fan support, a successful Kickstarter campaign for a movie sequel launched in 2013 by Thomas and Bell raised $3.7 million in a matter of hours. The film, toplined by Bell and featuring a number of other original cast members, was released by Warner Bros in 2014.

The same year, Play It Again, Dick, a Veronica Mars digital spinoff series from Thomas, premiered on the CW’s Seed platform. It featured series co-star Ryan Hansen attempting to put together a Dick Casablancas-centered spinoff of Veronica Mars.

Hulu is the second streaming service to pursue a limited series revival of a beloved CW series. Netflix recently brought back Gilmore Girls for four follow-up movies, also from the original creator and featuring the original stars and also produced by Warner Horizon.

Bell is repped by CAA and Bailey Brand Management.

DEADLINE – In a very competitive situation, with three major streaming services pursing, Apple has landed animated musical comedy Central Park, from 20th Century Fox TV, with a two-episode, 26-episode straight-to-series order.

The series comes from the creator/executive producer of the Emmy-winning Fox/20th TV animated comedy series Bob’s Burgers Loren Bouchard, who co-wrote it with the Bob’s Burgers‘ executive producer Nora Smith and actor-writer Josh Gad (Frozen). The show’s voice cast includes Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Titus Burgess, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci, Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn.

Central Park tells the story of a how a family of caretakers, who live and work in Central Park, end up saving the park, and basically the world.

Bouchard and Gad executive produce alongside Brillstein Entertainment Partners, with Smith serving as consulting producer. Kevin Larsen, who played a key role in getting the project together, is a producer.

Central Park was developed at 20th TV — home of such animated series as The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob Burgers, King of the Hill and American Dad — where Bouchard is based. It was originally eyed for Fox, which has been looking up to ramp up its animated offerings, recently ordering Lil Kev animated pilot presentation based on the comedy of Kevin Hart.

After Fox ultimately passed on Central Park, 20th TV took the project out, sparking a heated bidding war among Apple, Netflix and Hulu.

Central Park marks the first animated series for Apple and one of two series the new streaming players has give a 2-season order, along with the morning show drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

It also marks the first animated comedy series in the streaming space for 20th TV. The vast majority of the studio’s animated shows to date have been for sibling broadcast network Fox. (American Dad, which currently airs on TBS, originally ran on Fox for 11 seasons.
