'Veronica Mars' fans, rejoice!

203551__veronica_lSometimes, I feel like a bad news bear, incessantly discussing a steady stream of cancellations of quality programs. So long, Smith! Adieu, Arrested! Someday, we’ll meet in the afterlife, Valerie Cherish! (I need to see that!)

Today, however, is a different kind of day. Sort of an oh-happy-day, if you will. That’s because The CW just dropped us a note letting us know it’s picked up Veronica Mars (pictured) — ordering an additional seven episodes to finish out the show’s third season. Sure, that’s not the standard nine fan-boys and -girls were probably hoping for, but at least TV’s favorite teen sleuth will be working her magic through the spring. And seeing that the series is up 7 percent in the 18-34 demographic, is there any reason she shouldn’t be?

There’s also good news to spread for fans of The CW’s One Tree Hill, Showtime’s Weeds, and Fox’s Standoff and ‘Til Death. (I’m assuming the last-named show has fans? Anyone?) Tree just got an order for eight more episodes, Weeds will see its third season supersized (from 12 to 15 episodes), and Standoff and ‘Til Death are escaping the plague that befell their fellow Fox freshman series with pickups for five and nine more episodes, respectively.

Anyhow, if you’re happy about the aforementioned tidbits (and you know it), then clap your hands in the comments section below.

    Woot! Veronica is safe!!

  • meg

    Yay for Veronica Mars!!

  • Fire

    YAY for Veronica Mars! News like this makes me think there might be hope for TV after all. (Of course I’m still bitter over Fox canceling Firefly…)

  • BarryDubya

    Loud clapping a big ‘woo!’ for Veronica Mars being picked up (though small ‘boo’ for gyping us on two episodes).

  • Julie

    Yipee! Makes the weekend that much better. Veronica is so good!

  • Brian

    Glad to know CW is going to try and have a strong network. To cancel VM would be a big blow to my hopes for a network that will lose at least one (Gilmore Girls) next year and we are seeing the end (Smallville) slowly approaching. The only things I watch on the network is VM, Smallville, and Supernatural.
    To rob two episodes is funny. I am curious to the reason.

    I believe in Veronica Mars! I believe! *clap* *clap*

    Man, i’ve been waiting for this for soooo long. Veronica Mars is THE best show on TV, and i should now, I pretty much watch them all. The only one out there that can recapture the Buffy spirit and endear me the way BtVS used to.
    By the way, when will we get Veronica on the EW Cover?

  • Clap Clap

    Clap on,
    Clap off,
    Sorry – i just saw that commerical this morning. I don’t start my Christmas shopping until I see that ad.
    But back to the matter at hand – Woo hooo for Veronica!

  • GayJay

    well, if hearing about OTH getting more episodes means I also get to learn about V. Mars… I’ll take it! It doesn’t mean I’m too thrilled about OTH. I mean, they could just give us more V. Mars in that hour. Who else is up for two hours of new V. Mars episodes each week?!

    Veronica Mars being re upped means that Joss Whedon will be happy. And he’s god to my fanboy azz.
    ’til death got picked for another season? Really? That’s a little surprising. I like the actors, but the premise and lack of sincere laugh ‘em ups turned me off that show. On the other hand, Standoff has my not so secret tv girlfriend Gina Torres, the spiciest salsera of all the Latinas on tv right now, except for Selma Hayek on Ugly Betty. I be loving me some Selma these days…

    My love for the show hasn’t wavered, but I have been getting particularly annoyed by Veronica. She was ESPECIALLY judgmental in that last episode. But I still can’t wait for her to take down the rapist!

  • Ann Thrope

    YAY Veronica Mars!

  • kinglouieXVIII

    Thank goodness that VM got picked up for an (almost) full season because otherwise…I would have been forced to actually get a life. I live for Tuesday nights so that I can watch the show and then come to EW.com and blog about it. Something that I haven’t done since the days of yore when Buffy ruled the tube.
    Although the rapist mystery started somewhat weak, I’m really digging it now. I cannot wait to see how Rob Thomas will conclude this arc, and I even have more expectations for the upcoming mysteries since Mac & Wallace will play more prominent roles.
    Oh, and now that the season has been extended maybe Veronica can finally DUMP Logan’s sorry a**–something I have been waiting for a loooooooong time. (EVIL LAUGH IN THE BACKGROUND)

  • Vance

    Not to be the party pooper but ONLY SEVEN? If they are going to order almost all of them? Why not the remaining two? Oh well, at least we still get some Veronica loving… whew…
