“Veronica Mars. F.B.I.” – Show-Changing Spinoff in the Works?

Now, I don’t usually just post a link to an article and run, but I want to get this out there before I comment on it in detail over the weekend. While E! Online had some rather unfortunate news that Veronica Mars was being canceled this season last evening, this morning brought a somewhat different story from The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Veronica toys with time warp’ – The Hollywood Reporter

Veronica Mars might be looking at a quick graduation from Hearst College. The fate of the CW’s cult favorite remains uncertain, but if the show returns for a fourth season in the fall, it might find the young sleuth in a different setting. “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas has come up with an idea to fast-forward a couple of years and have Mars studying at the FBI Academy. (As a freshman at Hearst College, Mars (Kristen Bell) has been taking criminology classes and been looking to do an internship at the FBI.) Thomas is filming a trailer for the alternative fourth season of the Warner Bros. TV/Silver Pictures show, which will be submitted to the CW.

This is a move designed to save the show for its creator and…parts of its cast, at the very least. I’m trying really, really hard not to comment, but briefly: I believe in Rob Thomas’ vision, Kristen Bell’s performances, and the casting abilities of this staff.
