re: Veronica Mars (Hulu) — Season 4 Thread — premieres 7/19/19

Here's the initial plot. I'll spoiler it just in case.

Spoiler:
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 is drawn into an epic eight-episode 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.

I wonder how much, if anything, they will tie in or acknowledge from the two novels, which are considered canon.

If I were a betting man, I would say "nothing".

I don't know... They deal with things that were follow ups from the movie. Weevil's trial...

She also has a half-brother that turned into a pretty significant role in her life too.

There is some stuff they will have to acknowledge, even if it is just exposition.

I guess I didn't have to wait long to get my answer (somewhat)...

I've been wanting to rewatch VM. Might wait until next summer. I have to imagine Hulu will have better versions than the DVDs.

Great News! It looks like they're starting production at the end of the month. They are turning this around pretty quickly.

re: Veronica Mars (Hulu) — Season 4 Thread — premieres 7/19/19

Westworld’s Clifton Collins Jr. and Izabela Vidovic (Wonder) are set for recurring roles in Hulu’s eight-episode Veronica Mars revival set for premiere in 2019.

Collins will play Alonzo, a mid-level hitman for a Mexican cartel. Because of his facility with English, he’s chosen by his boss to travel to Neptune to take out whoever killed his wife’s nephew. The more time Alonzo spends in the U.S. the more doubts creep in about his chosen career field, particularly when he falls hard for a local girl.

Vidovic will portray Matty Ross. When teenaged Matty Ross loses the most important person in the world to her in an act of violence, she isn’t content to wait for justice. She goes after it herself in acts so brazen, they remind Veronica of the girl she used to be.

re: Veronica Mars (Hulu) — Season 4 Thread — premieres 7/19/19

Veronica Mars fans are arguably among the most loyal fans in TV history, which makes a revival a dream come true. How long had this been in the works before it was announced?

It has never not been in the works as far as [creator] Rob [Thomas] and I been concerned. As far as Warner Bros. is concerned, it was not in the works for a decade. Behind the scenes, Rob and I often exchanged texts about how we can do it again because it never lost its spark for us. We had some ground rules going in that we felt we wanted to fight for, which was we did not want to crowdfund it. I do not think our fans should be responsible a second time around because we were so grateful for what they did with the movie. We wanted to have the show grow up. Hulu had been a great platform because we could create a more adult world. That, to us, was easily justifiable the audience from Veronica Mars has also grown up. Even people that watched it on the younger side are in their 20s now. It lends itself to keeping the same audience [while] having a slightly more adult, cable show which I think we’re creating. I’m quite proud of this season.

Can you share anything about the new Veronica Mars series?

We have some pretty extraordinary people involved. All the originals, Patton Oswalt joined the cast this year, J.K. Simmons joined the cast [and] Max Greenfield is back. It’s very exciting. The whole first month we were shooting, I kept looking around going: “What are we doing? Who let us do this? This is absurd.” Shows are not brought back from the dead. They’re just not. The show is huge. It’s a big undertaking. It’s a lot of locations. It’s got a lot of drama. We’re doing a much more cinematic version of what Neptune, California, throughout the town looks like. It’s a big undertaking, but for me, it’s worth it. I think about for six months I’ll only be able to tuck my kids in two times a week, but I get to put [Veronica] out there again. There are a lot of understandable criticisms of people who use large platforms to state their personal and political opinions—opinions on the state of the world. The most common criticism is “just do it with your art.” I have never felt more confident that I am doing it with my art. I know that my girls are going to be able to watch the show when they’re older. That's how I sort of justify the sacrifice to undertake a monster show like this again.

The series comes five years after the Veronica Mars movie debuted in 2014, and the show concluded in 2004. What was it like to step back into this role once again? How will Veronica have changed?

We pick up where we left off at the end of the movie where she has decided to come back to Neptune. Something in her gut, which she always follows, is drawing her back to this small town. She tries leaving, she’s got a law degree and just when you think you’re out, they pull you right back in. The overarching story is of the haves and have nots and who is fighting for what, which I think is very relevant.

I was very much Team Piz, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks this as there are several articles dedicated to this. Will we see Chris Lowell appear on the new show?

I’m Team Piz probably because Chris Lowell is adorable but also he treats Veronica very well. We are shooting episode six right now, he has not been back. But Logan, Wallace, Weevil, Keith obviously, Dick, [ and actor] Kirby Howell-Baptiste is a new character. Kirby is on every TV show...She’s literally killing it. It’s very earned because she’s a spectacular actress.
https://www.newsweek.com/kristen-bel...-hulus-1292925


The Veronica Mars revival’s call sheet continues to expand.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Adam Rose — aka geeky Max — is the latest franchise vet to sign on to the Hulu limited series. The actor originated the role in Season 3, appearing in a total of six episodes. His alter ego ran an illicit operation selling old tests and research papers to Veronica’s fellow Hearst College students. Max also briefly dated Tina Majorino’s Mac.

In the Hulu revival, Max works as the owner/operator of High How Are You?, Neptune’s marijuana dispensary.

Production is currently underway in Los Angeles on the eight-episode continuation, which, narratively, picks up five years after the events of the 2014 fan-funded movie and features returning stars Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen and Max Greenfield (among others). The quasi-Season 4 will take the franchise back to its “hardcore So-Cal noir” roots, series creator Rob Thomas previously shared. “[There will be] one big case [with] eight episodes to tell the story. This is a detective show.”

Bell said "Shows are not brought back from the dead. They’re just not." Obviously not true. Lately any way. Within the past three years, we got "The X-Files", "Will & Grace" (which should have stayed away), "Roseanne" and "Murphy Brown".

She has no patience for flashers or street scum. Veronica Mars returns July 26th, only on on Hulu.

ABOUT VERONICA MARS Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode 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.

Yay!

I have some bad July 26th memories, so I'm looking forward to reclaiming it this year. Also, I don't really want another streaming service, but I'll throw Hulu some money for this. I've already backed the movie, bought the DVDs and bought the series again on Amazon Prime, so I can hardly stop now.

How could you!? I'm so excited about this. I hope they use the original Dandy Warhols song again. I hated the version they used during S3 of the CW.

This and the Deadwood movie have been wonderful surprises. I wonder if Hulu is going to release the episodes weekly or all at one?
