Veronica Mars is heading back to Neptune for the third time after her original CW series and crowd-funded film. This time, Kristen Bell’s titular detective will be going back to solve a mystery via streaming network Hulu. In the new adventure, Mars and her father, played by Enrico Colantoni, must solve a series of bombings that may or may not be tied to a dispute between the town’s elite and working class.
Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode 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.
