First of all, our favorite brooding sexy rich boy is BACK, baby!
What? You want to make sure he’s still as hot as you remember?
The marshmallows ask, Hulu delivers.
Neptune is CLEARLY in some sort of troubled times. Explosions! Money changing hands! Some kid waking up on a beach with what appears to be a prehistoric boom box but is probably a bomb! From the trailer, we can garner that SOMEONE wants to mess up Neptune’s reputation as a spring break destination – and per usual, Veronica Mars is here to investigate/stir up trouble/find corruption/do crowd control.
We see Keith and Veronica at their detecting best!!
We see Veronica using her favorite weapon (besides Backup the dog), the TASER!! Never underestimate a short girl with 30,000 volts backing her up.
Plus, we’ve got what is clearly a new bad guy in the form of J.K. Simmons! The dude from a billion movies! Who won an Oscar for Whiplash!
And PATTON! OSWALT! One of the funniest guys on Twitter! And Remy the Rat! Guest star of a million shows and a billion stand up specials! Sorry, I really like Patton Oswalt.
Now, frankly, I was surprised at how excited I got when I saw this trailer. I did NOT like the Veronica Mars movie. And I bought the movie on Amazon and now it sits in my library and taunts me. But the reboot looks different. It looks like it is catered to fans, definitely – but I’m hoping with more time and episodes, we can truly get a grown-up Veronica Mars. Also, the trailer, combined with this older tweet, is keeping my expectations high.
I will say this: the movie was nostalgic. The Hulu limited series isn’t going to be. Hardcore So-Cal noir. One big case. Eight episodes to tell the story. This is a detective show.
