Question: Any news on a fourth season of Veronica Mars?

Answer: I just e-emailed Mars' main man Rob Thomas for an update, and here's what he wrote back: "We're very much on the fence for a fourth season. My amateur handicapping of our situation 60/40 in our favor. We are shooting the finale as a season finale not as a series finale. There will be no alternate. If they do try to get rid of us, we're not going to make it easy for them." I gotta tell ya, there are few things in life I enjoy more than a juicy Rob Thomas soundbite.
