The CW Orders Veronica Mars Digital Spin-Off

Veronica Mars Spin-OffVeronica Mars is headed back to The CW — sort of.

Network president Mark Pedowitz announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that a spin-off of the original TV series is being developed for The CW’s digital arm, CW Seed.

“The Veronica Mars movie got it going,” Pedowitz said. “Rob Thomas is very excited about doing this at CW Seed.”

Pedowitz added that Thomas has a germ of an idea for the offshoot but “he hasn’t committed to any concept or characters yet.”

There’s no specific timetable yet, but the web series will launch after the V Mars movie hits theaters on March 14 and, according to reports, will consist of roughly eight 10-minute episodes.

    Not getting my hopes to high since im betting no character from the original show is gonna be involved in it expect for maybe a cameo here and there

    Even though I’m very happy to hear that the CW is ordering a Veronica Mars spin-off, but why now? Cause they finally realized that Veronica Mars had so much fans and they’ve made a mistake all these years ago?!

    So excited! I wonder how it will tie into the upcoming novels and sequel.

    Too little too late.

    Much rather have a Netflix spinoff. CW is trash.

  5. Sherrie says:

    Probably won’t be able to access it anywhere besides the US though!! :(

  6. Jon says:

    I have no clue what this entails but I’m excited about it!

  7. Lecholls says:

    This doesn’t sound very promising to me. Either it’s Veronica Mars or it’s not.

    I got all excited about this…until I saw “The CW”. I understand that the current executives at the network had nothing to do with the show’s cancellation back in 2007, but I still feel like the series (web or otherwise) deserves a superior network. But who knows? If the movie is a success, there will be even more potential for the future of the series.

    Sweet marshmallow goodness!!!!

  13. TV Gord says:

    Boy, I was just at an NCIS story, and now I made the mistake of coming here. There sure are a lot of spoiled children with computers.

  14. Mark says:

    Viva the Revolution — The power of the people — and the idiots at CW with egg on there faces for allowing such a great show to go so wrong so wrong — I wonder how many exec’s are now being told to look at other shows that were cancelled like Veronica Mars — and rush them back before either to movie or TV before Netflix or cable can profit from them….

  15. Awesome news!

    (If this was seven years ago.)
