It will consist of eight, one-hour long episodes, and will feature the return of star Kristen Bell in the titular role. "I hope we're still friends after I taser you", Bell wrote.

Rumors of the revival began in August when Variety reported that it was in the works at Hulu.
Series creator Rob Thomas is penning the first episode of the revival.
The original Veronica Mars followed a California teen (non-official) detective and student (Bell) who moonlit as a private investigator with her detective father (Enrico Colantoni).More news: SpaceX's 1st traveller is moonstruck Japanese fashion tycoon
The original series ran on UPN (before turning into The CW) for three seasons between 2004 and 2007.
It will reportedly bring viewers back again to the town of Neptune, CA, where spring breakers are being murdered and the parents of one of the victims hire Veronica Mars to investigate and discover the identity of their son's killer. And in users' minds, this strategy pits a service like Hulu against the very networks that those users are frustrated with for canceling their favorite shows-even though Hulu is jointly owned and operated by several of those networks, albeit not the one that aired Veronica Mars originally. In 2013, Thomas, Bell, and most of the series original cast put their support behind a Kickstarter campaign to fund a Veronica Mars movie. The campaign raised almost US$6 million by the time it concluded, well above its initial $2 million goal.More news: North Korea's Kim wants another Trump summit to speed denuclearisation: South's Moon
