The news has been floating around the internet for a few weeks that Veronica Mars would be coming back for a fourth season on Hulu.

Well, the official news broke today that Season 4 of Veronica Mars will air in summer 2019 on the streaming service!

Let’s get excited, Marshmellows!!!!

First of all, check out this video message from our leader Kristen Bell.

Next, here are the details from Hulu in their new deal with Warner Bros. Television Group:

• 8 episodes, direct-to-series order, slated for summer of 2019
• Fans can stream seasons 1, 2 and 3 as well as the 2014 feature film beginning in summer 2019
• Series creator Rob Thomas will write the first episode
• The season 4 synopsis is: “Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica 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.”

Series creator Rob Thomas took to Twitter this afternoon, letting fans know that season 4 will be set against a Spring Break backdrop like the Veronica Mars book The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, BUT that is NOT the story they will be telling. He shared, “We’re five years after the movie. Books are 98% canon. Pony is included. Marcia Langdon is police chief. Spoiler: Neptune (is) finally incorporated.

Again, let’s get excited, Marshmellows!!!!

THE ROZ REPORT

Here is what Roz had to report about what happened to her or what she witnessed today at Comic Con 2018 Day Two:

It was a fun day of awkward stories that finally got to some of the Hollywood double standards at the EW’s Brave Warriors panel, especially when Tom Ellis revealed a less than ideal situation in a sex scene.

Here is the picture Roz took at that panel:

The first full day of Comic Con 2018 got underway today in San Diego with loads and loads of panels, focusing on upcoming movies, new and returning TV shows, special salutes to women in the industry and so much more.

Naturally, it’s impossible to focus on every single panel that took place today, but the following includes brief details, pictures and/or trailers for many of the scripted TV shows that were on the schedule today as well some really cool photos of cosplayers and celebs in attendance today.

TLC member and self-professed #1 fan Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas moderated the panel, focusing on the new Freeform series about mermaids in the small coastal town of Bristol Cove. During the panel executive producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald confirmed that season two will see new mermaids in town, “It will give us a chance to dig even more into the mermaid mythology; what their lives are like, what their social structures are like.” [Devan Coggan at Entertainment Weekly]

Charmed (The CW)

The 1998-2006 WB series is getting a reboot this fall with a story that is very reminiscent of the original with a few tweaks. Mel and Maggie are sisters who live with their college professor mother. After she dies under mysterious circumstances, they are reunited with their long-lost sister Macy as they begin to manifest their dipowers. Macy is a scientist, who, while embracing her role as a witch, she wants to find a scientific explanation as to how their powers work. The show looks to rely a lot on humor, and will touch on a lot of prescient issues, such as LGBT relationships and the #MeToo movement. Executive Producer Jennie Snyder Urman shared that the original show had such strong powerful women and that in today’s world, there wasn’t a better time to bring back a show with empowered women.

Our very own Roz got to see part of the show’s panel, introducing the new FEMALE Doctor Who – Jodie Whittaker herself – along with two of her three new companions. The first, albeit short, official trailer for Season 11 was shown and according to Roz, “even though I only heard part of the panel, I’m excited to see a female doctor even if the Doctor’s gender isn’t at the heart of the episodes. Hearing that the season will be stand-alone (episodes) and (meant as) a way to get more people into the show (that) makes me hopeful that little girls everywhere will see that they can travel the stars.”

What was even more exciting was that Doctor Who lead Jodie Whittaker crashed the Her Universe Fashion Show, which Roz was attending, and Roz was able to snap this great shot of Jodie in full Doctor Who regalia. Here are a few other pictures of some of the great fashions:

Based on the Deborah Harkness best-selling novel, the series picked up by Sundance Now is a contemporary love story that begins against the backdrop of Oxford academic life, in a world where small numbers of witches, vampires and daemons live and work, unseen amongst humans, hiding in plain sight.

Sona Series (Streaming Series)

The 8-episode short form sci-fi series created by and starring actress Ashley Clements (The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and the film Non-Transferable) focuses on what happens when Lieutenant Belyn Sona (Clements), a United Earth Space Corps officer, has to choose between her alien husband and her home planet, she has no option but betrayal.
