Keith Mars is back, Marshmallows.
Hulu's upcoming revival of beloved crime series "Veronica Mars" had already booked several stars from the original show to reprise their roles. And now, Enrico Colantoni -- who played Veronica's (Kristen Bell) dad, Keith, throughout the series -- will be back, too.
From the sounds of it, Mars Investigations is going to need all hands on deck to solve the new mystery at the center of the revival. The eight-episode limited series will focus around the murder of spring break revelers in Neptune, and the conflict that causes between the wealthy '09-er elites (who want to put an end to the annual debauchery) and the working class (who rely on the influx of cash to sustain their businesses).
In addition to Bell and Colantoni, other returning stars include Jason Dohring (Logan), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), Francis Capra (Weevil) and David Starzyk (Richard Casablancas). Show creator Rob Thomas has teased that the revival will be a "hardcore So-Cal noir" detective series, and pick up five years after the events of the 2014 movie. We can't wait to catch up with everyone.
"Veronica Mars" makes its triumphant return on Hulu sometime next year.
With her graduation from law school imminent, Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) is interviewing with prestigious New York law firms when she gets a call from ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring), who has been accused of murder. Veronica returns to Neptune to help Logan find a good defense attorney, but when she becomes suspicious of the way Logan's case is being handled, she finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind: that of an amateur sleuth.
