Last year a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign made it clear there were still plenty of Veronica Mars fans out there, and now the digital arm of the show's network will be taking advantage with a new spinoff series. Deadline reports that CW president Mark Pedowitz announced that series creator Rob Thomas would begin work on the new show after he finished up with the Veronica Mars film, which will premiere at this year's SXSW festival before hitting theaters in March. The show appears to be in the very early stages, with neither cast nor a premise locked down, but the current plan is for it to air on CW Seed — the CW's online network that also features shows like Brad Bell and Jane Espenson's Husbands.
The Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign kicked off a year of high-profile filmmakers turning to crowdfunding to get their projects off the ground, with everyone from Zach Braff to Spike Lee taking advantage. If you need to catch up on Veronica Mars before the movie or spin-off are released, you're in luck: the entire series is now available on Amazon Prime Instant.
