Alright, you half dozen Veronica Mars fans, gather round because a potential reboot is being discussed!
Michael Ausiello reported at the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week that Veronica Mars showrunner Rob Thomas is eyeing a mini season consisting of 6 hour-long episodes. “Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode Veronica Mars mystery. If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be.”
This is not the first time we’ve heard this, as Veronica herself, Kristen Bell, has reported in the past, “We are definitely striving to do it again… And this time around we’re not going to ask the audience to pony up for anything.”
However, don’t try to update your Netflix queue just yet. Because of work Thomas and Bell are currently involved in, it can’t be sure when this reboot would occur. “When actors are on network shows, most standard contracts will give them outs for, like, one episode a year of guest-starring,” Thomas said. “But then there are also sometimes outs if you’re doing something that is non-competitive. Would NBC consider a Veronica Mars thing on, like, Netflix non-competitive? We have not figured that out yet.”
“Also, I’m developing Lost Boys (on the CW),” he adds. “If those things weren’t happening, we might be closer to a Veronica Mars [reboot]. The Good Place, I think, is going to be on NBC for a while. And if Lost Boys goes, finding that window will be tricky. But we both want to do it.”
Listen. I’m a patient man. I could get a season 2 of The Good Place, a Lost Boys television show, and more Veronica Mars that I don’t have to pay for!? I’ll wait forever. Okay, I’ll wait a year at most, but I’ll wait.
