Watch Veronica Mars
- 4 Seasons
Veronica Mars is a highschool detective show, named after the lead character, Veronica Mars. The series starred Kristen Bell and was aired on The CW Television Network. The show ran for a total of three seasons, but remains popular with fans. The series is set in a fictional town in California, where Veronica goes to school in the day and works for her father's detective agency, Mars Investigations, at night. The show's first season began with a mystery surrounding the murder of Veronica's best friend and classmate, and chronicles her investigation of what was supposedly already a solved case. In the second season, Veronica narrowly avoids death when a school bus- which she was supposed to have been on- crashes, killing most of the passengers. Veronica teams up with a member of a biker gang, whose fellow gang member had been murdered, in order to discover why the bus crashed, and to catch the murderer. The third and final season of Veronica Mars shows Veronica's move from highschool into college. The show itself changed as well, switching formats and showing two separate mysteries in a season, as opposed to one mystery per season as had been done previously. First, when Veronica's roommate is assaulted along with other young women on campus, Veronica sets out to catch the culprit. Next, when the college dean is murdered, Veronica sets out to prove the innocence of one of her professors. The show was a critical success, and its cancellation drew angry protests from fans.
