Veronica Mars is based on the television series that ran for three seasons on UPN and the CW from 2004 through 2007 (all of which can be viewed on Amazon Prime). Created by Rob Thomas, the show focuses on a young student (Kristen Bell) who progresses from high school to college as she moonlights as a private investigator, solving various mysteries in and around the fictional town of Neptune, California.
In the film, Veronica has retired from being a P.I. and is about to graduate from law school when she finds herself back in Neptune upon her ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) being accused of murder, a case that plunges her into her old life of searching for clues, evaluating evidence, questioning suspects and, of course, putting her life in grave danger.
The film has most of the original cast returning – Chris Lowell (Stosh ‘Piz’ Piznarski), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), Krysten Ritter (Gia Goodman), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Tina Majorino (Cindy ‘Mac’ Mackenzie), Francis Capra (Eli ‘Weevil’ Navarro), Ken Marino (Vinnie Van Lowe) and Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars).
