24. Veronica Mars

If you’re a huge fan of Kristen Bell (and really, who isn’t?), we have some terrible news, but also some great news! As may already know, the series Veronica Mars is not, and will likely never be, streaming on Netflix. In fact, it’s tough to find somewhere to watch the entire series. What gives, networks?

If you ask me, Veronica Mars is severely underrated and premiered ahead of its time and uring a time when a good mystery-drama with a strong female lead was not appreciated.

For those who aren’t educated on Veronica Mars, the canceled series (yes, it was axed, can you believe it?) followed Veronica, portrayed by Kristen Bell, as she helped her dad, a private investigator, solve cases in the fictional town of Neptune, California.

Each episode sees Veronica tag along, sometimes against the orders of her father, to solve a case, but the first two seasons featured one mystery that would take all season to solve and this case was always close to home for Veronica. She inched closer to solving the big mystery each episode as we followed on the edge of our seats.

For the third season, though, in an attempt to boost ratings and have a fresh spin on things, Veronica Mars tried a different approach. Instead of one main story arc, the series focused on a few.

During its run, Veronica Mars was nominated for two Satellite Awards and several Saturn Awards, as well as Teen Choice Awards. Yet, it was still canceled.

To close many open-ended mysteries the series didn’t get to solve due to being canceled, Kristen Bell and executive producer and writer Rob Thomas, launched a Kickstarter fundraiser to make a movie. The goal was $2 million, and it was reached in a record-time of 11 hours. Needless to say, Veronica Mars still has many loyal fans.

And now for the great news: If you still want more Veronica Mars, hang tight! Hulu has picked up the series for a fourth season that is set to consist of eight episodes. The season premieres later this summer on July 26, 2019.
