On March 13, 2013, cast members Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, and Ryan Hansen, and showrunner Rob Thomas all appeared in a video posted to the crowd-sourcing website Kickstarter that challenged fans of the TV show (which had been canceled in 2007) to pledge $2 Million to fund (or help fund) a feature film project based on the show. The project broke a Kickstarter record when it made more than $1.3 million in about six hours; the entire amount was raised and surpassed in under eleven hours.
Both actresses Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter were stars on the also iconic TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). "Buffy" creator Joss Whedon, a declared fan of "Veronica Mars," also had a cameo in an episode.
The sticker of the black circle with the bananas in the middle on Veronica's locker is the album cover of The Dandy Warhols, the album the feature's the theme song 'We Used to Be Friends'.
The network told Rob Thomas in advance that season 3 was probably going to be the last of the show, so he could have the opportunity to wrap up the series. Thomas got so angry at them that wrote the season finale as an anti-finale. In retrospect, he has said he doesn't regret it because they could not have made the movie if the show had had a proper ending.
Entertainment Weekly included Veronica Mars in its "25 Greatest Cult TV Shows Ever" list at position #13 in the September 29, 2009.
Paul Rudd was originally considered to play Vinnie Van Lowe.
