From the minute you hear Kristen Bell's hard-boiled voiceover, it's clear that some things never change — though Veronica might allege she has. Veronica Mars' titular hero claims to have moved on from her time as a teen detective ("Trust me, I know how dumb that sounds.") in favor of a prestigious career as a New York lawyer. Though Veronica might claim to be a marshmallow now, when she learns Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is a murder suspect (again!) she doesn't hesitate before resorting back to the righteously indignant and dogged detective we fell for all those years ago.
So who's Logan suspected of murdering this time? None other than Carrie Bishop (Andrea Estella), or as the world now knows her, Bonnie DeVille, troubled pop star and Logan's ex-girlfriend. (How many dead ex-girlfriends can one guy have?)
Can't wait to find out more? Here are eight things to know about the Veronica Mars movie before its premiere:
Veronica Mars has always been about two things: LoVe and murder, both of which are front and center in the film's first theatrical trailer.
Though Veronica (Kristen Bell) is still with the adorable Piz (Chris Lowell), who has thankfully gotten a much-needed haircut, the former P.I. can't seem to fully shake her feelings for Logan (Jason Dohring).
The Veronica Mars movie has an official release date: March 14.
According to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news, creator Rob Thomas was hoping to debut the film exactly a year after launching the movie's Kickstarter campaign, which garnered $2 million in just the first day.
Cara (Peyton List) isn't the only one running from her past. Tuesday's Tomorrow People reveals that John (Luke Mitchell) has more than a few dark secrets of his own — including one that could threaten his place among the Tomorrow People.
While a young John was initially happy with his place at Ultra, this week we'll learn the painful reason he couldn't continue playing good son to Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) any longer. "Jedikiah essentially experimented on [John] ... and the side effects of that and the effect that it's had on John's life have been pretty tumultuous," Mitchell tells TVGuide.com.
There are two types of people in this world: those on Team Logan and those on Team Piz. So which one is Veronica?
In new footage from the Veronica Mars film, we learn that the sleuth-turned-lawyer is still with her college beau Piz (Chris Lowell), but when she returns to Neptune to help Logan (Jason Dohring) out of a minor jam (i.e. being accused of murder), she might have a change of heart.
