“This is a very important Marshmellow announcement,” said Bell “did you guys know that as of summer 2019 all the old Veronica Mars episodes will be available on Hulu to stream and rewatch? Which is great because you’ll need to brush up since we’re making another one!”
The streaming site got the rights from Warner Bros. for the first three seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The feature film will also be available to stream.

Fans can look forward to eight new episodes in the new season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show should have the same voice given creator Rob Thomas is back along with writers Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Dan Etheridge.
According to Variety, the new season reportedly will be about spring breakers getting murdered in Neptune which hurts the town’s tourism. One of the murdered student’s parents hires Veronica Mars to investigate, which leads her looking into a mystery that is pitting the town’s wealthy and working class against each other.
