The streaming service has a limited, eight-episode season of the cult series.

AceShowbiz - Good news for Marshmallows! Teen noir series "Veronica Mars" is set to coming back for a new season on Hulu with Kristen Bell reprising her role as the titular character. The star took to Instagram to announce the exciting news on her Instagram account on Thursday, September 20.

"Attention all Marshmallows: BREAKING NEWS!!!!! We are OFFICIALLY back in business!!! A new #veronicamars series is coming back, on @hulu !!!!" she captioned a video of her excitingly announcing the reboot. "Veronica has always been a super hero without a Cape. And I think shes exactly what the world needs right now. Thank you to all my fellow marshmallows who stayed excited. Thank you to @hulu for the opportunity. I hope we're still friends after I taser I you."

The new iteration of the cult series will have eight episode with creator Rob Thomas coming back to write the first episode and produce the series. In the new season, "spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town's lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son's killer, Veronica is drawn into a mystery that pits the enclave's wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast's answer to Daytona Beach."

The reboot is set to premiere sometime in 2019. In the meantime, fans can watch the show's existing three seasons and movie wich will be available on the streaming service starting next summer.

The announcement arrives after it was rumored in August that the netwok was working on a revival of the series.

"Veronica Mars" aired on UPN and the CW between 2004 and 2007. Set in the fictional town of Neptune, California, the original drama followed a teen sleuth and student who moonlit as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father (Enrico Colantoni). Each episode sees Veronica solving a different stand-alone case while working to solve a more complex mystery.

The first two seasons aired on UPN before moving to The CW for another season. It was later followed by a fan-funded movie sequel in 2014 after Bell and Thomas launched a campaign to raise money through Kickstarter. In no time, the two raised $3.7 million. The flick featured Bell and a number of other original cast members.
