Veronica Mars Season 4 Photos and Synopses Released
Hulu has released a bunch of promo photos and the official synopses for the first four episodes of the upcoming revival season of Veronica Mars, teasing us on what to expect for the fourth season. Featuring our first look at some of the returning cast members such as Max Greenfield’s Leo, you can check out the full photos in the gallery below.
The official synopses of the four episodes are described as follows:
Episode 4.01 titled “Spring Break Forever” – Panic spreads through Neptune when a bomb goes off during spring break. Veronica and Keith are hired by the wealthy family of one victim injured in the bombing to find out who is responsible.
Episode 4.02 titled “Chino and the Man” – Veronica and Keith launch their investigation. Their involvement puts Police Chief Langdon on edge. Penn goes public with his theory on who the bomber is. Meanwhile, local teen Matty Ross begins her own search for her father’s killer.
Episode 4.03 titled “Keep Calm and Party On” – Veronica and Keith’s client, Daniel Maloof, makes a shocking confession. Sheriff Langdon closes in on her top suspect. Veronica and Matty join forces, just as the whole investigation is flipped on its head.
Episode 4.4 titled “Heads You Lose” – Convinced the bomber is still at large, Veronica visits Chino to learn more about Clyde and Big Dick. Mayor Dobbins’ request for help from the FBI brings an old flame to Neptune. Veronica confronts her mugger.
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.
Kristen Bell will both star and executive produce, with Rob Thomas, Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Dan Etheridge also executive producing. Thomas will also pen the first episode.
Veronica Mars originally aired in 2004 on UPN, a forerunner of The CW, and it featured Bell as a teenager turned private detective. Veronica’s initial case involved solving her best friend’s murder. However, she also took on an assortment of smaller cases against the backdrop of the larger story. The series ran for three seasons and 60 episodes before it was canceled. In 2013, Thomas, Bell, and most of the series original cast put their support behind a Kickstarter campaign to fund a movie. It was subsequently released in 2014, with Bell portraying Veronica as she returned to Neptune and resumed her career as a private investigator.
The eight-episode miniseries of Veronica Mars is set to debut on Hulu on July 26.
