The Veronica Mars movie could get a sequel, according to the show’s creator Rob Thomas.
Last week, Thomas and the show’s star, Kristen Bell, launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the film. Fans were encouraged to raise $2 million between them by April 12, so that Veronica Mars: The Movie would have the money to go into production this summer and then be released in early 2014.
They raised their intended funds in just 11 hours, and they currently have 57,000 backers and have almost more than doubled their goal, having amassed $3.7 million. Warner Bros. have now backed the film and shooting will take place in the summer.
Thomas has been discussing the film, and he has revealed that it could lead to further Veronica Mars adventures in the future.
Thomas told TVLine, “Veronica will survive the movie. I can’t promise anyone else does though. But there will be an opportunity for Veronica to do her thing again.”
The show’s creator was then asked whether he could see a sequel for the film or even a whole new series of the show on Netflix, to which he replied, “I’d be lying if I didn’t say I didn’t think of those things. I am hopeful it’s the birth of [much more] Veronica Mars.
Veronica Mars was originally broadcast by The CW network, and began in 2004 before running for three seasons. They then decided not to bring it back for a fourth season but fan pressure has kept the show alive and finally lead to the feature film being funded.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Kristen Bell stars as the titular character who at first is a high schooler, and then a college student, who starts to moonlight as a private investigator.
