Kristen Bell has made it official, Marshmellows: Veronica Mars is returning. Bell posted a video to Instagram in which she confirmed a report from last month that the show waill receive a new season as part of Hulu’s slate. She also added in the bonus news that all previous episodes of the show will be available on Hulu starting in summer of 2019.

Following that news, creator Rob Thomas took to Twitter to share some details. The new season will take place five years after the film, and Thomas noted that the fan-favorite books published following the series — The Thousand Dollar Tan Line and Mr. Kiss and Tell — will be “98% canon.” He later clarified that the difference will be “Little Stuff mostly” such as minor differences in the look and age of new characters.

He added that the new season will be set during spring break, just like The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, but will not follow that storyline.

The official synopsis reads: “Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.”
