Kristen Bell will return as private investigator Veronica Mars in a revival with creator Rob Thomas penning the first episode.
Hulu has picked up eight episodes in the US to air in 2019. An Australian broadcaster is yet to be confirmed.
The new season will once again delve into the class divide in Neptune, California, that ran throughout the original 3 seasons from 2004. No other cast are attached as yet.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, spring breakers are being murdered, imperiling Neptune’s tourist industry. The family of one victim hires Mars Investigations to find their son’s killer, and Veronica is drawn into a mystery that pits the town’s wealthy “09ers,” who’d just as soon see the spring break crowd go away, and working-class residents who rely on the money spring break partiers spend.
Bell will continue on The Good Place which screens in Australia through Netflix.
