Have you been waiting for a Veronica Mars comeback? Well, you're in luck. Kind of!

Kristen Bell is coming back to TV (finally!) on Showtime's House of Lies, Max Greenfield (a.k.a. the always smilin' Deputy Leo!) is starring in FOX's endearing and hilarious new comedy New Girl and FOX just green-lit a new comedy from VM creator Rob Thomas. All is right in the world, especially because the news broke today that a certain bad boy/vampire is coming on board Sarah Michelle Gellar's Ringer...

Logan Echolls himself, Jason Dohring, is joining the cast of the new CW drama.

The Veronica Mars and Moonlight fan favorite has been cast in the recurring role of Mr. Carpenter, a high school teacher at Siobhan Martin's (Gellar) stepdaughter Juliet's (Zoey Deutch) new school in Manhattan. EW first reported the news of Dohring's casting.

So any chance Logan and Buffy will hook up? (After all, we know she has a thing for bad boys/vampires.)

Gellar herself told us: "All my characters have multiple love interests. That's how I like it." So the numbers are in her favor.

Let's recap, shall we? We've got a Buffy alum (What up, SMG?!), a Lost vet (Nestor Carbonell) and now a Veronica Mars star?! Be still our TV-lovin' hearts. If Ringer, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 13, wasn't must-see TV before, it is now.

TUNE IN ALERT! E! News has exclusive video of an extended sit down interview with Sarah Michelle Gellar, airing tonight and tomorrow at 7 pm. Be sure to watch, then come back here to E! Online to see even more SMG magic.
