And next up in the plethora of noughties TV greats making a comeback is cult classic noir mystery drama Veronica Mars, Deadline reveals.

The beloved series is reportedly copping a revival via an eight-episode limited series at Hulu.

The publication adds that the streaming platform is finalising deals for the new instalment. There were reportedly early discussions of bringing back a number of the other cast members from the original series and its 2014 followup film.

Director Rob Thomas is taking the reins of the project through Warner Horizon TV, the cable/streaming division of Warner Bros TV, which produced the original series.

In 2013, Thomas and Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a Veronica Mars film as a followup to the series. They originally set a goal of $2 million and eventually netted an incredible $5.7 million. The movie was released in 2014.

Check out the trailer for the sleuthy flick below:

The popular noughties series kicked off in 2004 and ran for three seasons. Despite its short run, Bell was praised for her performance as the teen detective.

She has yet to comment on the news but we’re expecting a super sassy announcement in the not-too-distant future.
