Veronica Mars has cast two more roles in the upcoming revival, as Clifton Collins Jr. and Izabela Vidovic have joined. Both will have recurring roles in the eight episode season, debuting in 2019 on Hulu. Collins will play a hitman for a Mexican drug cartel, and Vidovic will play a character named Matty Ross, who will have something tragic happen to her, and her reaction will remind Veronica of herself.
In the revival, 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.
Kristen Bell (Veronica), Jason Dohring (Logan), Percy Diggs III (Wallace), Francis Capra (Weevil), David Starzyk (Richard Casablancas), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), and Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars) will all return to the show. Filming has begun on the eight episode sort-of forth season. Thomas has confirmed that this series will take place five years after the 2014 feature film. All three previous seasons and the 2014 film will be available on Hulu next year before the debut of the new series. The eight-episode limited series will debut sometime in 2019 on Hulu.
