The cast of Veronica Mars will reunite for a webseries, Play it Again, Dick, reports BuzzFeed.
The spin-off was announced earlier this year and filming has been completed on the eight-episode series.
Set to return for the series are Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Francis Capra, Kyle Gallner, Christopher B. Duncan, Ryan Devlin, Chris Lowell, Ken Marino, Amanda Noret, Lisa Thornhill, Robert Buckley, and Rose McIver.
Devlin replaces Teddy Dunn in the role of Duncan Kane.
Unlike the other actors who will play their series characters and a fictionalized version of themselves, Noret will appear in the show-within-a-show as Madison. Buckley and McIver are newcomers.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas spoke with Alan Sepinwall earlier this year:
“The web series will have more in common with ‘Party Down’ tonally, but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current ‘Veronica Mars’ heat to get his own series on the air. He’ll try to pull his actor pals into the venture with varying degrees of success.”
According to BuzzFeed:
The Rob Thomas-penned web series revolves around a fictional Veronica Mars spin-off that Hansen has “written” as a star vehicle for himself titled Play It Again, Dick. Like almost everyone involved, Bell plays a slightly skewed version of herself who has — begrudgingly — agreed to reprise her role as the titular sleuth for Hansen’s spin-off.
Fans wanting more Veronica Mars have the novel series that they can look forward to in the future. One book, The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line, came out this summer, and another book, Mr. Kiss and Tell is due out in October.
The webseries premieres September 15th on CW Seed.
