The world is still waiting to learn whether or not the Kickstarter funded Veronica Mars movie made enough money at the box office to warrant a proper sequel, but in the meantime the show’s cast have reunited for a new web series that is sure to make fans squeal with joy.

Play It Again, Dick is perhaps the most meta idea for continuing a hit series without actually continuing a hit series. The web series, which premiered today on CWSeed, focuses on actor Ryan Hansen and his Dick Casablancas character. Hansen plays himself, or at least a fictionalized version of himself, as he tries to cash in on the recent resurgence in popularity for Veronica Mars. Kristen Bell will return as a version of her private detective lead and Jason Dohring will play bad boy Logan Echolls. Enrico Colantoni will be back as Keith Mars and Percy Daggs III can be seen as Wallace, one of Veronica’s best friends and her partner. Daran Norris, Francis Capra, Chris Lowell and Ken Marino will also return.

“The web series will have more in common with Party Down tonally,” series creator Rob Thomas told Hitflix earlier this year, referencing the Starz comedy he worked on with Hansen after the Mars series wrapped, “but it will be about Ryan Hansen, or at least a version of Ryan Hansen, deciding to capitalize on the current Veronica Mars heat to get his own series on the air.”
