Veronica Mars is coming back. Last year, Hulu greenlit a new season of the cult-classic TV series, which followed teenager Veronica Mars as she makes her way through high school while moonlighting as a private investigator.

The show attracted a devoted fanbase, who later Kickstarted a feature film that continued the story. The eight-episode fourth season will take place more than a decade after the events of the series, and follows Veronica as she works to investigate who’s behind a string of bombings in her hometown of Neptune, California.

Hulu will begin streaming the original three seasons on July 1st, and the new season will drop on July 26th.

    Hulu has released Veronica Mars season 4 a week early


    Well, this is a surprise. Hulu had previously announced that its revival of the mystery series Veronica Mars would debut on July 26th, but the service has bumped the release date up by a week. The eight-episode fourth season is streaming now.

    The series, which first debuted in 2004 on UPN, followed high-school student Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) as she worked to figure out who murdered her best friend, Lily Kane (Amanda Seyfried), all while trying to navigate the ins and outs of life in high school (and by season 3, college). The series became a cult classic. A couple of years after it was canceled, creator Rob Thomas kickstarted a 2014 feature film sequel, which took place nearly a decade after the events of the series.

    Watch the first full trailer for Veronica Mars season 4

    Hulu has released a full trailer for its upcoming revival of the cult-classic mystery series, Veronica Mars, picking up the lives of the characters since we last saw them in the 2014 movie. In it, we see that the show’s heroine Veronica is back home in Neptune, California, dealing with a new threat to the city.

    This new season picks up nearly a decade after the show’s original three seasons. Veronica is back home and as cynical and witty as ever, and this new trailer shows off a bit of what to expect: Veronica returned home after being away for years, and is working as a private detective alongside her father. After a series of bombings devastate the town during spring break, they’re pulled in by one of the victim’s families to find out who is responsible. They narrow in on a man named Clyde (played by J.K. Simmons), who seems to have something to do with the attacks and who seems to be connected to the city’s wealthy residents, who aren’t thrilled with their town’s status as a spring break destination.

    Hulu’s Veronica Mars has a new trailer and its first hints of plot

    Hulu has released a new trailer for its upcoming revival of the detective series Veronica Mars. It’s the first real look at the show’s eight-episode fourth season, which will debut on July 26th.

    The series premiered in 2004, following high school student Veronica (Kristen Bell) as she moonlights as a private detective, solving the mystery behind her best friend’s death and a fatal bus crash. Later, she moves to college where she tracks down a rapist and murderer. CW canceled the series after the end of the third season, but the creators put together a Kickstarter to partially fund a feature film a couple of years later, while creator Rob Thomas co-wrote a pair of novels about the character.

    Rejoice, Marshmallows: Veronica Mars is coming back for a new season. Series star Kristen Bell announced on Twitter that the series is coming to Hulu for fans to rewatch, “which is great, because you’ll need to brush up, because we’re making another one!”

    In August, word broke that Hulu was working on a revival of the show. Following Bell’s video, Hulu confirmed that it has picked up a limited, eight-episode season, with creator Rob Thomas coming back to write the first episode and produce the series. The new season will follow Veronica as she’s hired to investigate the murders of spring breakers, in a “mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites ... against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.” Hulu says that it will stream the show’s existing three seasons and movie starting next summer, and the show will return sometime in 2019.
