She’s been absent for six years, but now Veronica Mars is everywhere: Vintage Books has announced a two-book deal with Rob Thomas and Alloy Entertainment to publish additional adventures of Neptune’s resident detective, with the first book acting as a continuation of the upcoming film version of the television series, which ran from 2004 to 2007.
It is also meant to be a bridge between the 2014 film and a potential sequel. Series creator Rob Thomas told The Hollywood Reporter, “I started my career as a novelist. Veronica Mars was first imagined as a novel. I’m thrilled that I’m going to get the opportunity to continue telling Veronica Mars stories in a form I’ve loved and missed.” Thomas co-created Party Down and the 90210 reboot, and he’s written five original books.
The untitled book is currently slated to go on sale Feb. 4, 2014. The book is available for pre-order on the Random House website for $15.95.
Random House has also released a brief description of the book written by Thomas and Jennifer Graham. Check out the synopsis here:
