The actress took to Twitter to officially confirm the news to fans. 

From Sabrina the Teenage Witch to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Nineties and Noughties hosted many leading magical ladies on the small screen. And let’s not forget, everyone’s favourite Californian teen sleuth and student, Veronica Mars.

It’s unsurprising, then, that news of a TV revival last month got everyone talking. 

Now, Kristen Bell has officially confirmed the well-loved show’s return to our small screens. Taking to Twitter, she wrote: 

“BREAKING NEWS out of Mars Investigations!,” Bell tweeted along with a video of herself. “A new #VeronicaMars series is coming atcha via @hulu. Thank you to all the marshmallows for staying excited and to @Hulu for giving Veronica a chance to wear her big girl pants. I hope we’re still friends after I taser you.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new series will be eight episodes long – with original creator Rob Thomas on board.

As fans will remember, the cult TV show ran for two seasons from 2004, the series followed the life of Mars – a teenage investigator. And resulted in everyone being called ‘Marshmallow’ as a term of endearment thereafter.

Back in 2013 both Bell and Thomas launched a campaign to raise funds to make a feature film. Thanks to Kickstarter, they surpassed their goal of $2 million (£1.5 million), raking in $5.7 million (£4.4 million), and the movie hit the big screen in 2014.

Of course, people want more and they’ve taken to Twitter to share their excitement. 

“THIS IS THE BEST NEWS!,” one user wrote. 

“I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT. Thank you for making all of our Thursdays that much better! The countdown begins…,” one user posted.

At this moment in time details may still remain scarce, but we can’t wait to see one of TV’s most beloved characters back on the case.
