Meanwhile, the Washington Post has the details on how a passionate fan base helped make the dream of Veronica Mars‘ dedicated creators and cast possible. They always wanted to continue the story of the plucky girl detective after their show drew a small group of totally dedicated fans, but not the masses required to keep the show on the air. It was canceled seven years ago.

Have you missed the show? Is it worth paying the price of admission to see it at the cineplex?
