However, should the deal be closed, original star Kristen Bell will star and series creator Rob Thomas will pen the revival.

Thomas reportedly developed the reboot through Warner Horizon TV, the streaming/cable division of Warner Bros.

Variety's sources cautioned that a deal for the series is not yet final.

There is a potential forking roadblock, though.

That fits with what Kristen Bell has said before; she's repeatedly mentioned wanting to bring back "Veronica Mars" as a limited series or miniseries - as opposed to a full 20-24 episode network series, or another film after the 2014 Kickstarter-funded movie.

Among the matters complicating the deal is that Bell now stars in the hit NBC comedy "The Good Place".

Hulu has declined to comment on this reporting.

Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen, Teddy Dunn, Michael Muhney, and Tina Majorino also returned for the Veronica Mars movie. Amanda Seyfried also appeared in multiple episodes as Lilly.

The case is nearly closed on a second Veronica Mars revival. As long as she holds to that, I think I want to keep doing the Kristen Bell version, if there is an opportunity, ' he went on.

The site adds that the new series will feature creator Rob Thomas at the creative head. It raised $5.7 million, way more than the $2 million they'd been asking for.

The original show also yielded a spinoff web series - Play It Again, Dick.
