Kristen Bell Wants to Do a “Veronica Mars” Miniseries

When Veronica Mars ended in 2007, fans were insistent about bringing the iconic character back to the screens, and they succeeded, crowdsourcing a budget via Kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie that was released in 2014.

During a Facebook Live interview on Wednesday, co-star Ryan Hansen was asked about the possibility of the series’ comeback and he got Kristen Bell on the phone to dish about playing the investigator once again.

“Rob and I are sort of in constant contact about when we could do it again,” Bell said. “There’s a lot of willingness and commitment to doing it again.”

The actress is currently starring NBC’s The Good Place, but noted that if they were to bring Veronica back, it would be some kind of TV or streaming series.

“Personally, and I think that Rob probably agrees that, A: we’ll never make the fans pay for it again, and B: the format works better in an episodic, where you get a little more of it,” she shared. “So we want to do a miniseries. We are willing to put the effort in.”

“I mean, if I have to do it as Murder, She Wrote at 80, we’re going to do it. It’s going to happen.”
