Following the reasonably well-received comeback movie back in 2014 comes news of another return of the super-sleuthy Veronica Mars.

This one will be an eight-part limited event series starring the woman herself, Kristen Bell, and emanating from the show’s creator, Rob Thomas (insert hackneyed thing about him not being the bloke from Matchbox 20 here).

The news comes via Deadline, and before anybody freaks out about it possibly affecting production of The Good Place, apparently it won’t. I mean, we love Veronnie, but we also love TGP, right?

Speaking of which, season three of The Good Place starts up late next month. Yay!
