“I spent my first 19 years trying to escape my hometown. Made it out, then after a decade away, decided it needed me, and I needed it,” says Kristen Bell’s Veronica Mars at the opening of the official trailer, setting up the premise for Hulu’s revival.
In the revival from original series creator Rob Thomas, 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 (Bell) 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.
Veronica Mars will premiere all episodes on Friday, July 26 on Hulu.
Watch the trailer below.
