AceShowbiz - Veronica Mars has returned to the small screen after 12 years. Hulu has just released the first full trailer of the upcoming miniseries, offering a better insight into Kristen Bell's private investigator character and what she's dealing with in the new series.
The footage opens with Veronica going back to her hometown Neptune, California. "I spent my first 19 years trying to escape my hometown. Made it out, then after a decade away, decided it needed me. I needed it," she says in voiceover.
Her life seems okay as she reconnects with Logan (Jason Dohring) until an explosion occurs right before her eyes. That is unfortunately not the only bombing in the town during spring break. "It's possible that these bombings are part of a campaign to destroy this town," Veronica says.
The series of bombings leads her to a man named Clyde (J.K. Simmons) who seems to have something to do with the attacks. He also looks suspicious as he is somehow connected to the city’s wealthy residents, who are not happy with their town's status as a spring break destination.
The trailer also hints that there will be a trouble in paradise between Logan and Veronica. Nicole (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) asks her, "What's the destructive gene in your relationship?" to which Veronica replies, "I think it might be me."
About the new season, Kristen hints that it "will be a controversial season." Speaking to E! News, the actress explains, "I am excited for people to watch and I am also probably going to stay off the internet once it airs. There's some stuff that happens that people will have strong feelings about."
Set nearly a decade after the show's original three seasons, the new series will still stick to what worked with the original series. The only thing that is different is that Veronica is not a high school kid anymore.
"It's different when she's an adult," Kristen continues teasing. "The world is bigger, it's sort of darker and dirtier, but she still has her moral compass, her sass and her wit. It's still very much a show about the haves and the have nots and Veronica fighting for the underdog. It made me so happy to do it again."
"Veronica Mars" premieres on July 26 on Hulu.
