Following the cult show's cancellation, Veronica Mars' eponymous heroine did a stint on Heroes before being launched into the mainstream when she starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall opposite Jason Segel and Russell Brand. Bell then bounced between guest appearances on shows like Party Down (also from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas) and roles in films, including You Again and Scream 4. She was also the narrator on the CW's Gossip Girl. She starred on Showtime's House of Lies for five seasons before dying and going to the Bad Place on NBC's The Good Place. Bell is also now a certified Disney Princess, lending her voice and musical chops to Anna in the hit animated musical Frozen.
Jason Dohring went from playing one lovable psychotic jackass, Logan Echolls, to another on the short-lived CBS vampire drama Moonlight.

Though he'll always be Keith Mars to us, Enrico Colantoni has kept quite busy since Veronica Mars first ended. He starred on the procedural Flashpoint before moving to Person of Interest in 2011. Since then, he's had recurring roles on Powers, The Good Fight, and iZombie, even stepping behind the camera to direct two episodes of the latter.
After playing Veronica's best friend Wallace for three seasons, Percy Daggs III appeared on In Plain Sight, Raising the Bar, and Southland.

Weevils wobble, but Capra's career didn't fall down. Following the end of Veronica Mars, the actor appeared on The Closer, Friday Night Lights, and Heroes. Capra then landed a recurring role as Crispin, a scam artist, on the FX series The Strain, and followed it up with a turn on iZombie too.
Ryan Hansen, who played fan favorite character Dick Casablancas, perfected his lovable idiot routine when he starred opposite V Mars co-star Ken Marino in Rob Thomas' Party Down. The actor then moved on to the short-lived Friends with Benefits and hit E! series Burning Love. He also appeared in the Veronica Mars web spin-off, Play It Again, Dick, because no one can get enough of Ryan or Dick. He also popped up on The Mindy Project, Santa Clarita Diet, iZombie, Teachers, and also Kirsten Bell's Instagram. But most recently, he starred on YouTube's Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, in which he played a fictional version of himself.
Tina Majorino, who had a successful actor before ever appearing on Veronica Mars as the computer genius Mac, joined the cast of Big Love in 2006.

After playing one of the show's most divisive characters, Piz, Chris Lowell starred as the swoon-worthy receptionist Dell on Private Practice. He also appeared in the Oscar-nominated films Up in the Air and The Help before returning to TV in the (sadly) short-lived Fox comedy Enlisted. In addition to acting, Lowell is also an accomplished photographer and made his directorial debut with Beside Still Waters. You can currently catch him wearing amazing '80s blazers on Netflix's GLOW.
Following his portrayal of sleazy P.I. Vinnie Van Lowe, Ken Marino stuck mainly to TV.

Who didn't love Deputy Leo? (Besides Veronica, that is.) After appearing on Greek, Ugly Betty, and Raising the Bar, Max Greenfield finally became the breakout star we always wanted him to be when he landed a starring role on the Fox comedy New Girl. The hyper-douche Schmidt is as far from the kindhearted Leo D'Amato as one can get, but we love him nonetheless. You can currently catch him in The Neighborhood.
Tessa Thompson has become a household name since playing Wallace's girlfriend Jackie Cook on Veronica Mars. She has appeared in hit movies like Dear White People, Creed, Sorry To Bother You, Thor: Ragnarok, and Creed II.

More recently, she appeared in Hand of God, and currently plays Stella on SEAL Team.

Parker wasn't exactly Veronica's most beloved character, but Julie Gonzalo didn't let that slow her down.

Following the dramedy's cancellation, Gonzalo made appearances on Castle and CSI: Miami before being cast as Pamela Rebecca Barnes on TNT's Dallas reboot. She's also appeared on Grey's Anatomy and Lucifer.
It was no surprise when Veronica asked Cliff McCormack to pose as an aspiring voice actor for a sting. In real life, the majority of Daran Norris' career has consisted of voice work, including The Fairly Odd Parents and American Dad!. Norris has also made live-action appearances on Party Down, Big Time Rush, and Desperate Housewives. And, like most of the people in this gallery, Norris has had a recurring role on iZombie.
Amanda Noret hasn't done much since playing Veronica's arch nemesis Madison Sinclair. The actress appeared as "Co-Ed #2" in Jekyll, along with the small roles in The Insatiable, Bunny Whipped and Till You Get to Baraboo. In 2014, Noret reprised the role of Madison in the Veronica Mars movie. We just hope she's grown out of her "trip to the dentist" phase or else everyone best watch their punch.
