Be cool, soda pop, because the cast of the upcoming Veronica Mars revival is enough to make Marshmallows lose it.

The eight-episode miniseries revival set to debut on Hulu in 2019 features many fan-favorite returning faces and some new additions to the troupe. Kristen Bell is back as the titular snarky private eye, of course. Series creator Rob Thomas, who is returning to executive produce and write, previously told E! News there is no Veronica Mars without Bell.

"What I'm hoping for is that after I retire, some quality young writer wants to remake it and send me checks that's the dream there," Thomas said.

However, until that happens, Bell and Veronica Mars are tied together for Thomas. "I can't imagine doing it without Kristen in my professional lifetime. I mean, never say never, but I think if I'm not doing it with Kristen, it means that Kristen no longer wants to do it. And Kristen has said she's willing to do it until it's Murder, She Wrote. As long as she holds to that, then I think I want to keep doing the Kristen Bell version, if there's an opportunity," he said.

The new miniseries may sound similar to a book that came out following the 2014 movie, but Thomas said the events of that book happened. The miniseries features spring breakers getting murdered in Neptune, which starts to impact the town's 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," Hulu said in a release.
