Veronica Mars Is ThisClose To Coming Back

To be honest with you, I haven’t let it in my skull that there is even a chance that Veronica Mars wouldn’t be renewed for a third season and end up on The CW. I just couldn’t imagine that the people at The CW would let this show go. They had to give it at least one year on air paired up with Gilmore Girls and their 6M visitors before giving VM and friends the boot. Now it looks like we are just about 2 weeks from hearing some (hopefully) great news.

If E! Online’s Kristin Veitch is right, then all systems are a go, and we will be hearing the good news on May 18th. Check out Kristin’s column for the full scoop, but check out what she had to say about what she heard from her peeps in the know.

“Don’t worry. It’s coming back.” Those are the exact same words I heard this week from an inside source regarding Veronica Mars. And she was quoting the exact same words of someone I think you’ll take seriously: CW chief Dawn Ostroff.

Seems that VM creator and all around fab guy, Rob Thomas, also feels pretty confident about their return

“I believe we’re going to be back,” VM executive producer Rob Thomas tells me. “Everyone knows I put a $4,000 shower in my office, but I also kept the Veronica Mars writers an extra three weeks, and we actually have episodes one, two and three broken for next year. I’m that confident we’ll be back, and we need to hit the ground running next year.”

Logan ShockerAnd since we’re talking about scoop for next year, Rob also mentioned that they were going to move away from the season long mystery, and get into a few smaller ones. I had first heard of this idea during a press conference I participated in with Rob Thomas and Jason Dohring. I’m all for change, and I trust Rob, so if he thinks smaller mysteries will work, then as long as they involve a shirtless Logan I’m good.

Check out what more Rob had to say to Kristin about the set up for Season 3.

“We’re going to do away with the season-long mystery and, instead, go with three long mysteries. Our first mystery would be eight episodes long, and the nice thing about it is that we give the audience more jumping-in points.” In episode 16, the first mystery will introduce the rapist, who shaves women’s heads, which Thomas says “allows us to keep some characters we’ve grown to love on the show.

Head over to Kristin’s column to read more about who is and who isn’t coming back on Veronica Mars, and which show won the coveted SOS (Save One Show) campaign!

    […] Veronica Mars is not getting cancelled from the new CW network. Well maybe. Probably not. What kind of half assed name is CW? I mean if you don’t want to be perceived as the “also-ran” flea market network then don’t have a name that sounds like the that 6′ 2″, 17 year old kid with the learning problem that used to kick my ass in the 5th grade. Wait. Where was I? Oh yeah Veronica Mars may be around for another season. Shocker. (GMMR) […]

    I was so guttered that Veronica Mars was cancelled… They need to bring it back because desprate housewife is doing my nut in… and the repeats on E4 over in England aint enough… Ive got the series on dvd. Just i’ve been hearing they making it into a movie and to be honest its not gonna be enough. When the hype settles down then what?? If Rob has run out of idea’s for the series, he should look at fan’s idea’s… I’ve go tons of idea’s for veronica mars, just i don’t wanna see my favourite american tv show go down the pan!! I haven’t stick to american tv show before and i’ve got my parents and even my grandparents loving the series and they keep asking me, is it still running?? Please continue with the series… Veronica Mars fan over in England Dannii xoxo
