My, how time flies when you're a show on the bubble. Series creator Rob Thomas has fashioned a plan to "fast-forward" the lives of Veronica Mars and company should the CW series squeeze a fourth season out of Dawn Ostroff. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Thomas is as we speak crafting a trailer previewing this possible time warp - with 'Ron now studying at the FBI Academy.* (Ooh, I got goosebumps just typing that!) The trailer is to be submitted to the CW as the network considers the series' fate.

Now if I've got my math right, this shift could advance Logan's maturity level to that of a full-fledged 18-year-old.

UPDATE: Ausiello is now reporting that Veronica would not be a student at the FBI Academy, but rather an actual agent.
