Fans of Veronica Mars, the cult classic television show that starred Kristen Bell as the titular character and ran on television from 2004 to 2007, have reason to celebrate now that Hulu has finally released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming reboot!

The streaming network announced last fall its plans to reboot the popular neo-noir series that has already spawned its own movie, much to the delight of Mars fans everywhere. In addition to releasing the first teaser trailer for the upcoming reboot, Hulu also revealed the 8th episode season will begin streaming on July 26th.

Bell herself announced to Marshmallows (what fans of the show call themselves) that the show will be returning back this September, thanking fans for their continued support of the show and the characters.

Fans can expect to see a lot of the same characters they have come to love from the original series back for the reboot, and some new ones too. Alongside Bell, original castmembers Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, David Starzyk, Max Greenfield, and Adam Rose will all be returning to Neptune, California to reprise their roles. Patton Oswalt will also be joining the cast as will Dawnn Lewis, J.K. Simmons, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Mary McDonnell.

Series creator Rob Thomas also revealed to fans on Twitter that this current reboot will actually be one big detective series, with Mars Investigations looking in to "one big case" during the 8-episode season, instead of a new case each episode.

According to Hulu, the season's big mystery will revolve around murdered spring breakers. "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. "

The plot may sound familiar to fans as many have noted it's similarity to that of "The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line," the first Veronica Mars book written by Thomas. The series creator assures fans they can expect something new from the reboot and that the book simply serves as canon to the current storyline.

If you've never seen the original series, but feel like you should catch up before the reboot airs, Hulu will be streaming all episodes of the original series starting the summer before the release date of the new season.

Check out the trailer and mark your calendars for July 26th.
