Kristen Bell is ready to revisit her role in the cult hit series Veronica Mars, according to Entertainment Weekly. Series creator Rob Thomas is also set to return.
The deal is still in the works, but it reportedly would allow Bell to work on the series while still starring in The Good Place. According to Deadline, the series would have a limited, eight-episode run.
The original series ran from 2004-2007. Its first two seasons appeared on UPN and its final season appeared on the CW.
Thomas and Bell joined forces in 2013 to raise funds on Kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie. They raised $5.7 million for the movie, which was released in 2014.
The series and follow-up film starred Bell as teen sleuth Veronica Mars. She worked closely with her father, a private detective played by Enrico Colantoni. She uncovered the dark secrets of a California town while dealing with her own relationship drama.
There is no word yet as to whether popular fellow cast members Percy Daggs III and Jason Dohring will be signing on to the revival.
Fans of the show are overjoyed.
"VERONICA MARS IS BEING REVIVED FOR HULU. THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE," said one fan on Twitter.
"I love Veronica Mars with all my heart," tweeted another. "So while I normally roll my eyes at 'revivals'...not this time."
Thomas also tweeted out a link to the Deadline article, getting more than 4,000 likes.
