Strange things are afoot in Neptune, but with sleuth extraordinaire Veronica Mars on the case, things will get sorted, right?

Yes, Veronnie’s coming back in an eight-episode fourth series – you just can’t keep a good gumshoe down!

Kristen Bell returns as the titular character, while old faces Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, Max Greenfield, Ken Marino, Daran Norris, David Starzyk, Adam Rose and Ryan Devlin are also back. Patton Oswalt and JK Simmons are amongst new names in the cast.

The story this time revolves around spring breaker murders on Veronica’s home turf, which aren’t exactly great for the town’s all-important tourist industry. Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, and Veronica is drawn into a mystery that ends up pitting wealthy elites against the working class.

Veronica Mars Season 4 airs late July overseas. We’re eagerly awaiting a local date.
