During the "iZombie' panel at the San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, executive producer Rob Thomas dropped in some interesting details about his hit teen girl detective drama, "Veronica Mars."
In an interview with TV Line's correspondent Michael Ausiello, the 49-year-old hinted on the possibility that the Kristen Bell-led series could make a comeback either for a sequel on its 2014 full-length feature or for a limited series event.
"I hope so!" Thomas answered when Ausiello asked if there would be a movie follow-up. "Kristen's game, I'm certainly game … Kristen and I talk about it – possibly for a second movie or maybe try to take it out like a short-run series –they're doing like a Veronica Mars-True Detective, which is really appealing to us."
When asked if he had already started picking up the project, Thomas said that his hands are quite full as of the moment because "these guys [iZombie] are keeping me busy."
The said series revival/movie sequel would likely be years away from its fruition because aside from The CW scripted program, Thomas is also tied up with "House of Lies."
Bell played the titular character, a high school junior around the time the series debuted in 2004. She was a skilled private detective who often collaborated with Percy Daggs III's Wallace Fennel, her best friend and sidekick, in solving mysteries.
The show ended its run on May 22, 2007. On 2013, Bell and Thomas launched a fundraising campaign to produce a film version of the show on Kickstarter. Gaining over $5 million ahead of its target date, the film of the same name was released on March 14, 2014.
