Hulu has slotted July 26 for its eight-episode revival series Veronica Mars, from original series creator Rob Thomas.
The premiere date was revealed via Twitter, along with a short teaser for the new episodes (see above), in which Kristen Bell’s titular sleuth prepares for spring break in Neptune.
The reboot returns star Bell, Enrico Colantoni and Jason Dohring to the series that ran for three seasons on UPN and the CW from 2004-2007. In the revival, spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica (Bell) is drawn into an epic mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
In addition to Bell, Colantoni and Dorhing, the revival also stars original cast members Ryan Hansen, Jason Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, David Starzyk, Max Greenfield and Adam Rose, as well as Dawnn Lewis, J.K. Simmons and Kirby Howell-Baptiste.
Thomas executive produces with Bell, Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Dan Etheridge. Spondoolie Productions produces in association with Warner Bros. TV.
