Hansen's return doesn't come as a big surprise. In the video that launched Thomas and star Kristen Bell's Kickstarter campaign, his was the first face seen on screen. After Veronica Mars ended, Hansen and Thomas also continued to work together on Party Down.

With only two days left until production starts, there's still no word from former Neptune natives Paris Hilton, Kristin Cavallari and Leighton Meester.
