Veronica Mars Revival coming to Hulu, teaser trailer drops

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas referred to this new season as "hardcore So-Cal noir", so we're definitely in for something dark and mysterious.

Hulu has a slate of original content that's continuing to grow, a slate that keeps getting beefed up thanks to series like the eight-episode Veronica Mars revival that we just learned is coming on July 26. The teaser also shows Veronica steeling herself to deal with a rowdy crowd of spring breakers - but she's got the tools to handle them. There's The Good Place, Parks and Recreation, Party Down, episodes of BoJack Horseman, The Simpsons, and Big Mouth, and Veronica Mars. "That means drunks, derelicts, flashers, frat boys, sorority vomit, pickpockets, bottomless drinks, topless dancers, street scum, and beach bums. And that's just the walk to my vehicle", Veronica says with a smirk as she tests out her trusty taser.

Veronica left the straight-edged life behind long ago (five years ago, in fact, during the events of the Veronica Mars movie) and is back to working as a detective in the of the seedy underbelly of Neptune, California - a small town that can't seem to get enough of murder. Erwich told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that the story "is very true to the character". She is not a little girl anymore. "You'll see her deal with contemporary issues in a contemporary world".

There will also be some new faces in the cast, including Oscar victor J.K. Simmons, who play an ex-con working for Big Dick Casablanca, and Patton Oswalt as a pizza delivery man who is also a true crime fanatic.
