Brace yourselves Marshmallows, your favourite sass-talking detective could be returning to a television screen near you very soon.
That’s right, a Veronica Mars revival series is reportedly in the works.
The hit television show ran for three seasons from 2004 to 2007 and followed teenage sleuth Veronica Mars, played by Kristen Bell.
Fans of the programme were devastated when The CW didn’t renew it for a fourth season – which could have seen Veronica join the FBI – but a $5.7million Kickstarter-funded movie was made in 2014 which provided some sense of closure.
There have also been several books written about Veronica, which were intended to follow on from the movie timeline.
However it seems that we may not have seen the last of that Marshmallow, Veronica Mars as EW have announced a revival is in the works at streaming service Hulu.
On their website they said: "A new season of the fan favorite mystery series is close to a deal at the streaming service — with original creator Rob Thomas and series star Kristen Bell on board.
"Several elements of the deal are not yet closed but a revival has been quietly in the works for months between studio Warner Bros. and Hulu."
They added that the arrangement would allow Kristen to work on another series of Veronica Mars and continue her role as Eleanor Shellstrop on the popular NBC comedy The Good Place.
It is not yet clear how many other original cast members could return if the project goes ahead, but some have shared their support for the revival on Twitter.
Francis Capra who played Eli ‘Weevil’ Navarro on the show, posted: "Quick message for all the marshmallowy folks on my timeline which is blowing up during this very exciting and no-doubt memorable time, if you didn’t know it already, Eli and the entire cast LOVE and appreciate you SO much. Anything is possible with fans like ours! Fingers crossed."
Ryan Hansen, who portrayed Dick Casablancas also shared a link to the revival news and said he thinks it’s "for real".
Fans of the show were thrilled with the news and took to social media to share their thoughts.
One person said: "VERONICA MARS IS BEING REVIVED FOR HULU. THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE."
Another commented: "All due respect to everything going on today, but Veronica Mars is coming back and I’m happier than I’ve been since the movie was released. I just need Veronica and Logan to be together and happy and for us to actually see it because their reunion in the movie was not enough."
A third added: "Y’all dont realize how much Veronica Mars means to me. I’m so excited for the revival."
