VERONICA MARS Closer to Being Renewed?

VERONICA MARS Closer to Being Renewed?

Yeah, I’ve heard the buzz over the past few days.  Seems that with the cancellation of GILMORE GIRLS, our little VERONICA MARS may be rising from the dead.  I’ve been a bit hesitant to say much about it because it seems almost a little too good to be true. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure how much of this buzz was created by VM creator and #1 cheerleader Rob Thomas.  If you read the various reports from the big boys over at The Hollywood Reporter and Variety they all seem to be reporting the same story and with the same source – Rob Thomas.  I’d feel a bit more hopeful if someone from The CW was cited. But at this point I will take what I can get and allow myself to be cautiously optimistic.  I’ve been burned in the past and so I’m keeping my expectations low.

But what if VERONICA MARS is renewed?  Will it be the show we know and love?  Rumors are that the full cast (including Jason Dohring) won’t be back, and even Papa Mars (Enrico Colantoni) might not be a regular if the ‘Veronica Mars: The FBI Years’ reinvention of the show is picked up.  I konw VM has always been about the powerhouse Kristen Bell, but I happen to think that her co-stars had a little something to do with the fans love for the show. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, I’m just settling in to watch last night’s episode of VM.  I will be back with a full recap a bit later today.  I didn’t mean to TiNo Veronica, but I’m old and I fell asleep on the couch in the middle of the show last night.  I considered watching it when I woke up at 2am, but I wanted to give it my full attention this morning. The parts I saw were great, and I personally would love to see Paul Rudd around Neptune a bit more (not like that would ever happen). Ok off to watch VM.

    I’m keeping guardedly optimistic about VM being renewed. I’m not sure how it would play out without the regulars and in a different genre. I’d give it a chance but I just wish it would come back as we know it.

    I have to agree with Uggy, I would love for it to come back in this format next year. It would be a completely different show without all of the other main characters. The whole new premise idea just sounds wierd to me. And I thought last night’s episode was great!

    GMMR, just wanted to let you know, you’re not alone! I too fell asleep during VM last night. But it’s only because I’ve been getting up at 6am lately…. not because I’m getting old…. really.

    I know for a fact I would not return to Neptune if they got rid of the supporting cast. Yes, KB is amazing, but its her ability to work off the incredibly cast she has and her relationships with them is the reason why I still watch

    I just got one of my friends hooked on VM after I made her watch last weeks episode with me, and she borrowed and watched the entire first season over the weekend. I’d be sad if I had to tell her that the show was cancelled.

    I’d rather have VM in any capacity than not have it at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Logan and some Keith Mars and do feel they bring a lot to the show, but if them disappearing from the show (or having smaller roles) means having a smart detective drama survive, I’m all for it.

    I couldn’t watch the latest Veronica Mars (or Gilmore Girls because they cut it off) because breaking news of the Griffith Park fire lasted for two hours right through my favorite shows.

    I know that’s sucky for everyone there who was displaced but I have little sympathy for things that get in the way of my shows and me.

    Sorry I didn’t post on the episode discussion but I’m a spoiler-phobe! 🙂

    Although I’m happy to hear that VM will be coming back I am sad to hear that the cast will not be returning with her.

    I’m pretty partial to some of them.

    …and if many people feel the way I feel I don’t know if they will be tuning into the new show.

    GMMR – I don’t know what’s wrong with the VM recap screen, but everytime I try to submit comments, it takes me to MeeVee (which is great, but I want to comment as well!). Just thought I’d let you know.
