Q: I love Kristen Bell. Is it true that she’ll be back in a revival of “Veronica Mars”? Please say yes! -Kendra F., via email
A: Yes, but they are not sure yet when this will happen. Kristen and creator Rob Thomas have teased its return in a special six-episode redux of the cult-hit series. The only hitch: They have to work around her schedule for “The Good Place” and Rob’s schedule for the CW’s “Lost Boys” revival.
Rob recently revealed: “Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode ‘Veronica Mars’ mystery. If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be. We need to find a window where we could both do it. When actors are on network shows, most standard contracts will give them outs for, like, one episode a year of guest-starring. But then there also are sometimes outs if you’re doing something that is noncompetitive. Would NBC consider a ‘Veronica Mars’ thing on, like, Netflix noncompetitive? We haven’t figured that out yet.”
Q: You mentioned a while back that “Hand of God” would be back on Amazon soon, but I haven’t been able to find anything else about it. Do you have an update? -- Valerie F., Madison, Wisc.
A: The second and final season of the series starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delany is slated for March 10. Creator Ben Watkins gave me a few teasers on what to expect: “In season two, Pernell’s empire is in jeopardy, and part of that Harris-family empire includes (new cast member) Linda Gray (as Pernell’s aunt). She becomes a bigger part of the story because she wants to make sure that if he goes down, the Harris family doesn’t go down with him. We get to explore a little bit about what was going on with PJ and the software he was working on. And there’s a connection there to Jocelyn (PJ’s wife) -- that mystery is driven by Crystal Harris. She really steps into a leading role and drives the story forward because she is intent on finding out what happened to her son’s software and fulfilling his legacy.”
Q: Do you know if “Longmire” will be back for a sixth season on Netflix? -Jeff S., via email
A: Netflix has announced that the Western crime drama will be back for a sixth and final season. All we know as of this writing is that it will premiere sometime this year, and it will be 10 episodes. Executive producers Greer Shephard, Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny released this statement: “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity to compose a closing chapter for these beloved characters who inspire lasting memories. Most importantly, we’re committed to delivering a dynamic and satisfying conclusion to our fans that rewards their longtime loyalty.”
