Veronica Mars may return -- in print
Those of you who have been diligently sending Mars candy bars to Dawn Ostroff, head of CW programming to save Veronica Mars from permanent cancellation may want to hold off on the next shipment when you hear what creator Rob Thomas has to say. In a recent newspaper interview Thomas pretty much said that VM is over for good as a television series.
Oh, he's not upset with the fans for trying. In fact, according to the interview, he loves that the fans have been making this all-out effort to renew the show. It's just that the CW's Ostroff doesn't get to make the final call if the show stays or not. That call is made by sister company CBS. Thomas believes that head honcho Les Moonves doesn't want to continue the show.
However, that doesn't mean that we won't see Veronica and her friends again. Thomas recently had a meeting with DC Comics and they are interested in producing a season 4 comic book. I'm not sure this work work for Veronica Mars. I can see it with shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Star Trek because the science-fiction and fantasy elements these shows include fit well into a comic book format. Would you buy a season 4 Veronica Mars comic?
