Veronica Mars is not moving forward with Season 5 on Hulu in the immediate future... though the door is open for a return

Fans looking forward for yet another season of Veronica Mars on Hulu should not hold their breath, since Season 5 is not in the streaming service's immediate future.

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas told TV Line there have been, 'no further discussions' about another season of the hit show starring Kristen Bell.

While there is nothing happening in the short-term, Thomas also wasn't ruling out the possibility of another season further down the line.

A spokesperson for Hulu would not comment on the report, but a source at the streaming service did confirm there are no current plans for another Veronica Mars season.

Season 4 debuted this past July on Hulu, and the eight-episode season was largely praised by critics and fans alike, though the finale was quite shocking, showing the death of Jason Dohring's Logan, the love interest of Kristen Bell's title character.

Given that Dohring's Logan was quite beloved, it's no surprise that fans of the show (dubbed Marshmallows) were not pleased.

'Nothing has happened that I didn’t imagine was going to happen,' Thomas said of the reaction to Logan's death.

When asked if the fans' vocally negative reaction to the finale has made him reconsider his stance, Thomas stood his ground.

'No. Not even a little bit. I know what the show needs to be moving forward. There are not many shows about kick**s detectives and their boyfriend at home,' he said.

Thomas said that, if a fifth season were to eventually happen, it would be, 'Agatha Christie-esque' in tone and story.

'It won’t be this exactly, but some version of Murder In a Manor House,' Thomas added. 'Something that is so explicitly detective-y.' 

He added that he felt Season 4, 'was the bridge season, to take us from half soap opera/half mystery show to full detective/mystery show.'

Veronica Mars started as a series on The CW, with the original run lasting three seasons between 2004 and 2006, starring Kristen Bell as the title character, a young detective solving crimes in her hometown of Neptune, California.

Thirteen years after the show went off the air, the cast and creator Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter campaign for a Veronica Mars movie, raising a then-record $5.7 million, with the movie debuting in 2014.

The show returned to its small-screen roots when Hulu announced an eight-episode order of a new Veronica Mars season, which debuted this July.
