The final episode of TV show Veronica Mars aired in 2007 but that doesn’t stop fans from hoping some kind of revival. With their help, a feature film was released in 2014 and two more books followed, but the full revival never did happen. According to Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, the revival was recently really close to happening but the plans didn’t come to fruition.

“We thought we were incredibly close not too long ago and a couple of business things got in the way, that neither Kristen nor I could control,” said Thomas while speaking to E! News. “So we’re biding our time, but we have an idea for what we want to do and we’re eager to do. Yeah, we’re both right now in a little bit of heartbreak because we thought we were so close, but that’s Hollywood.”

When asked if there is a future for Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell responded in a positive fashion and promised that she will continue trying to get the show back alongside Thomas.

“In my world, there is (future),” said Bell. “I mean, I’m going to be blunt: It’s tough, for a variety of reasons I can’t get into, but, Rob and I are trying and we will continue to try.”

Bell and Thomas also discussed Veronica Mars revival back in October 2018, saying that they are looking into a possibility of making a mini-series. They said that miniseries could be the best format to move forward, and also said that they won’t make fans pay for it like they did with a Veronica Mars feature film. Thomas wrote the script for the movie following the cancellation of the series after three seasons, but couldn’t get the studio to fund it. He then asked fans for help via Kickstarter and collected the necessary money.
