Nearly six years after it was cruelly ripped from our hearts by its untimely cancellation, Veronica Mars will live again. After years of on-again, off-again plans to revive the cult detective drama for the big screen, creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell decided to take the matter into their own hands and ask the fans to fund the project via Kickstarter. For those who missed the series: Well, firstly, we’re very sorry for you. You should take care of that. (It’s on Netflix streaming, you know.) Veronica Mars was a show about the daughter of a private investigator who follows in her father’s footsteps at high school (and later, college). Smart, funny and more than a little noir, Veronica Mars wasn’t the best fit for the UPN and CW networks that aired the show, and after three critically acclaimed but low-rated years, they pulled the plug in 2007.
