Veronica Mars is an incredibly popular property from the mid-2000s that has already had one revival, in the form of a movie, and is set to have a new eight-episode season on Hulu. The show follows the titular character, played by Kristen Bell, as she plays private-eye in high school. After her friend is murdered, Veronica’s father loses his job as sheriff and she finds her life drastically changed. The show only lasted three seasons originally, but it had a dedicated fan base who helped get the 2014 movie made through a Kickstarter campaign. These fans will be incredibly happy on July 26th when the new season hits Hulu.

Hulu released a promo featuring Bell as Mars:

Fans will also be happy to hear that Hulu will be streaming the original three seasons and the movie. However, there is no release date for those yet.

The new season is set to return to the noir roots of the show. The show’s creator, Rob Thomas says the new case is:

“Hardcore So-Cal noir. One big case. Eight episodes to tell the story. This is a detective show.”

The case involves the murder of some spring breakers in the city of Neptune. This causes problems for businesses that rely on tourists. Mars is hired by one of the victim’s family to investigate and she finds herself in a conflict between the wealthy “09ers” and the local businesses.
