Potential joy in an afternoon of potential Winthrop sadness

From E! Online:

1. Creator Rob Thomas is shooting a five- to six-minute featurette of a new version of Veronica Mars, which is one of three options the CW is considering for next season.

2. This new Veronica version takes place four years in the future, and features Veronica as a full-fledged FBI agent. (This morning's Hollywood Reporter incorrectly reports that in the new featurette, Veronica is still in the FBI Academy.)

3. Kristen Bell is the only castmember who is part of this "FBI years" trailer/featurette. It is not yet known which other castmembers would come on board if the CW chooses this option. Veronica's current cast and crew were informed of the featurette yesterday (hence, the widespread panic and cancellation rumors running rampant—and my panic attack).

4. For better or worse, Veronica's fate has not yet been decided. So, keep reading and show your support below in the comments section. (By the way, never before have I seen comments pile up so fast and so strong anywhere on E! Online. Keep 'em coming!)

Whether Veronica is set at Hearst or in the near future with Vern as a full-fledged FBI agent, I'll be happy. Autumn Reeser also got picked up for a pilot this week, but if the television gods want to be particularly awesome, they'll smite that and let her get picked up as Kristen Bell's catty rival (or new bff) on Veronica.

I want that damn trailer.
