Now that Veronica Mars has been brought to the big screen, will there be more going forward?

Series creator, movie director and co-writer Rob Thomas said there is a magic number he’s discussed with Warner Bros. about returning to Mars for more adventures. Either way, the fans have not only spoken but put  their money where their mouth was. The fact that they were able to get this movie made gives hope to all those who lose their favorite shows to cancellation.

If you could turn a cancelled show into a movie, which would you choose?
