“Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas has high hopes that a six-episode revival of the Kristen Bell-led series will happen in the future. He, however, recently admitted that he doesn’t know when exactly it will materialize.

“Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode Veronica Mars’ mystery,” Thomas said (via TVLine) at the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week. “If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be.”

Thomas pointed out that Bell is a series regular on NBC’s “The Good Place,” and both of them are not sure if the network will allow her to do the revival. “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 are also sometimes outs if you’re doing something that is non-competitive,” Thomas explained. “Would NBC consider a ‘Veronica Mars’ thing on, like, Netflix non-competitive? We have not figured that out yet.”

In addition to his work as an executive producer on The CW’s “iZombie,” Thomas is also developing a series adaptation of the 1987 horror-comedy film “Lost Boys” for the network, and if that project continues, he said that a “Veronica Mars” revival may not happen soon.

“Veronica Mars” was canceled by The CW in 2007. Seven years after, a “Veronica Mars” film, which was crowdfunded by fans, was released. For the potential revival, however, Bell — who played the title role in the franchise — told TVLine last July that they won’t be asking fans to “to pony up for anything.”

“I mean we are incredibly appreciative that that happened,” Bell said. “But I think the most respective thing to do this time is say, ‘Guess what all networks and internet platforms, we’ve proven our worth let’s not ask them to pre-sell all their tickets, let’s just give them something that you know they’re hungry for.”
