Surprise ‘Veronica Mars’ Season Four Released On Hulu
Veronica Mars is now streaming on Hulu.
Kristin Bell announced Friday at San Diego Comic-Con that Hulu has made all eight episodes of the new season available to stream today – 12 years after the third season and five years after the 2014 film.
“It was a hard decision at first [to return to the series], but then I was like, no, you have to have this character – this superhero without a cape – out there as an example for your children, and it’s going to be worth it,” Bell said. “What was really great is the last frame of this pilot you’ll be able to the influence I had as a mother in a teenage girl character who is affected by the events of the premiere episode. Veronica takes the girl under her wing.” Bell continued. “I was able to sort of transfer all my emotions about wanting to keep my daughters safe to this new character.”
The show premiered in 2004, with Bell starring as Veronica. Veronica Mars is a 17-year-old anti-establishment high school student/detective.
Season four is focused on spring breakers who are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. Mars is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer and is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia against a working-class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
