The recent news that Veronica Mars will be returning brought cheer to many a fan, but Kristen Bell has warned that the sleuth’s return won’t be all sunshine and lollipops.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bell has spoken of how she thinks the world as it is today needs a hero without a cape and superpowers, and that the new eight-part limited series will reflect our current state of things. As such, the new series of Veronica Mars will be, “darker, bigger and more cinematic”.

It may not be the last that we see of Ms Mars, either, with Bell cheerfully claiming, “I would do her until she’s Murder She Wrote.”
