Are you ready for the Veronica Mars revival? TVLine reports J.K. Simmons has joined Hulu’s upcoming reunion series.
As reported earlier, the streaming service has ordered a limited revival for the detective drama, which stars Kristen Bell as the private detective Veronica Mars. The show was cancelled by The CW in 2007 after three seasons.
On Veronica Mars, Simmons will be playing Clyde Prickett, “an ex-con who served 10 years for racketeering, and was smart enough to be the first guy in Chino to offer protection to Neptune’s richest real estate developer, Big Dick Casablancas (David Starzyk), on Big Dick’s first day in prison.”
The Veronica Mars revival is set to debut on Hulu in 2019.
