We knew she was coming back, now we know that new Veronica Mars episodes will be airing from July.

Well, overseas at least.

While we wait for local confirmation, we can wonder where the promised “darker” direction of the wonderful series – this one will be just eight episodes – may take us.

This official bit of guff may help: “Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic 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.”

This teaser doesn’t exactly fall on the dingy and bleak side, though. But it does make us want to catch up with Veronnie again.
