The season 4 conclusion of Veronica Mars was devastating, and the series’ titular heroine departed Neptune as a result. The series’ unexpected return to Hulu (the revival season debuted a week ahead of schedule) was followed by a harrowing season 5 premiere.
Fans of Veronica Mars are counting down till the unannounced fifth season, when the spunky blonde investigator will return with new cases and challenges.
Thomas created a script for a movie that picked up where the series left off. When asked to contribute to the production, Warner Bros. On March 13, 2013, they began a Kickstarter campaign, and in about 11 hours they had collected over $2 million. Funding on Kickstarter for $5,700,000+. On March 14th, 2014, the movie was released. New episodes of a Hulu series were made available on July 19, 2019.
Is Veronica Mars Coming Back for Season 5?
It would seem that Veronica Mars’ rebirth was just temporary. In a November 2019 interview with TVLine, creator Rob Thomas said that he and Hulu have yet to discuss Season 5. Don’t discount Thomas’s and Bell’s (and the “Marshmallow” audience’s) creativity, however. The popularity of the crowdfunding effort ultimately led to the renewal for Season 4. Season 5 is doomed to never air on Hulu.
Despite this, Thomas said he had plans to keep Veronica Mars going in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. In explaining his decision to take Logan’s (Jason Dohring) life, Thomas said, “The reality is, I want to keep playing Veronica Mars.” Before explaining why he had to die, Logan explained, “I feel that in order for the programme to run that way, it must function as a noir detective show.”
Who Else from the Veronica Mars Cast Will Be Back for Season 5?
Many of the original cast members returned for the fourth season, including Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III (who plays Veronica’s best friend Wallace Fennel), Ryan Hansen (who plays Neptune’s village idiot Dick Casablancas), and Francis Capra (who plays Neptune’s local bad boy Weevil).
This season has welcomed a number of new cast members, including Patton Oswalt, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and even Oscar winner J.K. Simmons. (Tina Majorino, who plays Mac, was noticeably missing; she didn’t come back after finding out her storyline would be cut shorter than she’d hoped.)
The fate of Veronica Mars Season 5 and the return of the actors are both up in the air, but one actress is expected to leave the show. Veronica’s boyfriend Logan Echolls (Dohring) was killed in the last bombing, leaving fans stunned and in despair.
Dohring is certain that Logan will stay buried, but Veronica Mars may attract both new and familiar people to Neptune. Since “everyone in Neptune is dead,” Bell will continue to portray Veronica Mars throughout the fifth season.

The character of Keith Mars, Veronica’s dad, has indicated interest in a movie version of the show.
Despite Dawn Ostroff’s satisfaction with Veronica Mars’ rising ratings, the show was cancelled following the February 2007 sweeps in order to make space for the reality show Pussycat Dolls Present. Once the break was over, the remaining five episodes were shown.
According to Ostroff during the 2007 CW Upfront, Veronica Mars would not be included in the new primetime lineup. Four years after the conclusion of the third season, Thomas developed “Veronica in the FBI” and included it to the DVD release of that season. Ostroff said the initiative was “dead in any form” when asked whether the FBI premise would work. Ostroff also hinted at a possible reunion between Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas on CW. TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello broke the news of the cancellation in June.
