Rob Thomas, who created the television show Veronica Mars, will  deliver on his promise to share big news about the Veronica Mars Movie that was fan-financed on Kickstarter! The record-breaking campaign raised their hoped-for $2 million in less than 10 hours, in large part from fans who had been starved for more stories of the young female sleuth.

Now this week, in addition to to giving details about the official fan event happening as well as of their panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con,  Thomas also shared a very interesting photo from the set.  One that has fans abuzz that The Young and the Restless star, Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) and the former Sheriff Lamb of Veronica Mars, might be making a return in the movie even though the Sheriff was killed-off!

For some clues to this Zap2it reported on the photo in question, “The picture is pretty simple, a photo of someone’s trailer door. However, the mystery comes with the name written on a piece of tape attached to the trailer, Sheriff Lamb.   Marshmallows will remember that Sheriff Don Lamb (played by Muhney) was killed in the third season, after being hit in the head with a baseball bat.

Zap2it speculates stating about the photo and what it means, “So, is Muhney returning? If so, how do they explain this one away? Is it something as simple as a flashback scene, or is it a case of Zombie Sheriff Lamb? A very plausible explanation could be that Lamb’s little brother or sister is now Sheriff of Balboa County, where the show is set.   

It won’t take long to find out for sure, as Thomas promises to explain the photo Wednesday (July 17).   At that time, he’ll also unveil a special website just for Kickstarter backers.  Then, of course, there’s Comic-Con on Friday, when all of the main players will take the stage in Hall H to greet their fans and show off the first footage from the movie. There will be a second chance to see the cast and watch pieces of the movie at a second event, organized by Thomas, Friday night at the Horton Plaza Regal Cinema in San Diego.”

In addition, according to the L.A. Times, Rob Thomas has signed on to co-write two Veronica Mars books. The first will be about an adult Mars and pick up where the movie leaves off.   Vintage, the publisher which will be putting out the books, hopes that fans will be equally hungry for books about Veronica Mars. The television show, which starred Kristen Bell, ran from 2004-07 and was canceled despite pleas from avid fans.

So with Veronica Mars having a renaissance, do you hope Sheriff Lamb is alive and well? In a flashback? Would you like to see Michael Muhney n in the motion picture version?  Are you a fans of Veronica Mars?  Share your thoughts below!

Oh please let this be true!!! Loved him on that show!!!

A day or two after the movie was announced, I tweeted MM and asked him if he had been approached. He tweeted me back (which was kinda cool!) and said that he was not approached but that he was very happy for the cast and crew. Things definitely could have changed since then, but at least initially, he was not in the script.

Yes! Michael Muhney has been weird on the topic of VM. He tweeted early on (like the day VM got to 2 million) that fans should not bug Rob with letters and e-mails begging for Lamb to be back – which made me really want him back all the more.

Yes. I love Michael Muhney in anything. He was great on Veronica Mars and he is even greater on Young and Restless. He is so sexy and talented. Would love for him to return. Yes, Yes, Yes.

It could explain why he wasn’t on Y&R much lately-

He hasn’t been on Y&R Much lately because Dylan is on 4 days a week.

Jerry O’Connell got the part according to the Hollywood Reporter.

I loooooved MM as Sheriff Lamb on VM! My family and I loved this show and can’t wait for the movie. I’d love the books too. Yes to MM as Sheriff Lamb and YES to Veronica Mars! YEAH!

If MM can’t return as Lamb, then they should just leave the character dead. No need to recast this character.

It’s really weird that hollywood is pretty much begging for people to finance their films thru these campaign fundraising efforts. It’s great though that a number of campaigns failed to raise the funds they need for their vanity projects. The worst one has to be music video of zozia mamet from low rated hbo soap opera “girls” w/c has no racial diversity from its cast despite it being ny based. Stupid zozia couldn’t even proofread her little pitch for funds when she didn’t correctly spell the word privilege. This jewish daughter of playwright and conservative convert david mamet couldn’t spell the word privilege. Hilarious!

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
