Veronica Mars fans probably shouldn't hold their breath for a return trip to Neptune.

The dust has settled since the revival season arrived over the summer to some considerable controversy, so it's about time when the creative team would start thinking about what's next.

But it looks like nothing is next… at least for now. Veronica Mars boss Rob Thomas has told TVLine that there have been no talks with US streaming service Hulu about making a fifth season of the show.

Thomas cautioned that Veronica Mars could be brought back at some point in the future again, much like it was for its 2014 movie and the recent revival series. Hulu isn't commenting at all.

Still here? Then you might be one of those who petitioned to have the season four twist undone, after a car bomb detonated on Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) and left Veronica (Kristen Bell) a widow.

In spite of the huge fan backlash on social media, Kristen Bell has been one of the biggest defenders of killing off Logan in such brutal fashion.

"I don't even know if I should talk about it because I don't want to make anyone angry, but I'm allowed to state my opinion," she pointed out.

"I would say that I hope people recognise without conflict, there is no show. They would be dissatisfied if we had a perfect show. It would be lame. It would not be a reinvention of anything. It would not make any progress in Veronica's life."

Veronica Mars is available to watch on Hulu in the US.
