Veronica Mars just surprised fans by dropping its revival season on Hulu a week early and we are shocked and overjoyed. Series star Kristen Bell revealed the news Friday at San Diego Comic-Con that the eight-episode season would be available July 19, rather than its original premiere on July 26.
The new season synopsis, released by Hulu, reads: "Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family 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."
Fans of the series quickly took to Twitter to share their excitement, and wondering how to cancel their plans to binge the new season.
I swear to God if anyone spoils Veronica Mars s4 for me before I'm able to watch it there will be lives ruined, devastation, bloodshed. No one writes songs about the ones that come easy, but this is how I will end up on Dateline. #VeronicaMars #Dateline— Kates Mcgee (@isacylon) July 19, 2019
Honestly, this is great...but does screw up like two weekends of plans. #VeronicaMars— Pursued By A Beard (@PursuedByABeard) July 19, 2019
During the panel for the series, Bell admitted that production on the revival was hard given long hours, but that she would happily play Veronica for the rest of her career.
"Am I gonna miss six months of bedtimes to put this girl back into the world?" she recalled asking herself.
"I'll play Veronica until everyone in Neptune is dead," she joked.
