Now Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas has revealed it could return yet again, this time as a limited TV series.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Almost 100,000 fans spent over $5.7 million to back a movie sequel to the cult television series Veronica Mars. Backers who spent $35 were promised “a digital version of the movie within a few days of the movie’s theatrical debut” in addition to a t-shirt and some other extras. The movie was released both theatrically and on video on demand this weekend, but a percentage of the crowdfunded film’s backers were left dissatisfied with the movie’s digital download. Why? The Veronica Mars UltraViolet release frustrated a number of kickstarter backers.
Warner Bros Digital distributed the movie through Flixster, which is (among other things) an app front-end for the UltraViolet movie service. There were multiple reports of fans who found themselves frustrated, unable to access their digital copy of the film promised by the kickstarter. Warner Bros. will be issuing refunds to supporters who have been unable to access their copy of the film.

In an ideal world, Veronica Mars would serve the dual purpose of satisfying existing Marshmallows, as Veronica Mars devotees call themselves, while making new ones.
On the first count, I can say as a longtime fan (I was one of the 91,585 who contributed to the Kickstarter) that the sequel just about lived up to my expectations. On the second, it’s harder to judge. For all its imperfections, though, it unmistakably delivers in one respect: It left me wanting much, much more.
