Why the Veronica Mars Revival Was Canceled

Hulu brought fan favorite series Veronica Mars back for a fourth season last summer. Creator Rob Thomas had plans to continue producing short seasons and star Kristen Bell was on board to return. So it was surprising when Thomas said in November that there are no plans for a fifth season

Hulu SVP of Originals Craig Erwich gave an executive session for the Television Critics Association today. He addressed questions about why the streamer is not proceeding with Veronica Mars.

Veronica Mars season 4 blu-ray

Veronica Mars recently returned for a whole new season on Hulu. Technically, it’s season 4, coming on the heels of the previous three seasons that aired on UPN/The CW. But don’t tell the distributors of the latest season’s Blu-ray release that. For some baffling reason (rights issues?), the Veronica Mars season 4 Blu-ray is being sold as Veronica Mars season 1.

Rob Thomas Interview

/Film asked to speak with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas in advance of Hulu premiering the new fourth season. Then, in a surprise move, season 4 premiered on Hulu while the cast was at Comic-Con. Hulu still took care of us though, bringing Thomas for lunch with the Television Critics Association.

Now that Marshmallows have had a chance to watch the fourth season of Veronica Mars, we got to do a spoiler interview with Thomas instead of a preview. We talked specifics about the bombing mystery, the tragedies that befall Veronica, her friends and family, and an update on Thomas’ adaptation of The Lost Boys for The CW. All four seasons of Veronica Mars are now streaming on Hulu.

And yes, the spoilers begin now.

Veronica Mars trailer

It’s kind of fitting that the fourth season of Veronica Mars got a surprise week-early release by Hulu. The season was set to arrive, with all eight episodes at once, on Friday, July 26. But during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed by the streaming service that Veronica Mars would return…that day. Like, immediately that day. So diehard fans of the dogged private detective, first introduced as a high school student and now a full-on adult, could catch her latest adventure early.

As has become the case for a lot of streaming shows, it was best for fans to watch the show quickly because the season was full of surprises. To discuss any of them – and why they worked or failed – means we’re diving into spoilers. Right now. So skip this article unless you’ve seen all eight episodes (or if you don’t care about being spoiled).

Seriously. Major spoilers begin immediately.

Veronica Mars trailer

It’s become old hat for a cult TV show to get revived in some capacity now, but rare is the TV show that gets two different revivals across different mediums. Veronica Mars is that rare show. First, it was brought back from the dead because of a passionate crowdfunding campaign that led to a movie released by Warner Bros. Pictures in the spring of 2014. Now, Veronica Mars is back again with an eight-episode fourth season airing on Hulu starting on Friday, July 26. Where the Kickstartered movie felt haphazard and mildly uninspired, this revival is incredibly well-written and conceived, a return to form at least as good as the show’s second season.
