It certainly wasn’t surprising to see some of the “Veronica Mars” alumni appearing as guest stars on The CW’s “iZombie” as the zombie series was created by Rob Thomas, the same showrunner who brought us the teen detective show.
But when it comes to a “Veronica Mars” reunion, this particular episode titled “Fifty Shades of Grey Matter” takes the cake. According to Entertainment Weekly, Veronica herself, Kristen Bell, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of “iZombie” Season 2.
This ultimate “iZombie” and “Veronica Mars” crossover will apparently take place in the 11th episode of “iZombie” Season 2.
Details about Bell’s involvement in the show are being kept under wraps, but EW reported that she will only be lending her voice for an undisclosed role. It was also revealed that in this episode, Rose McIver‘s Liv will eat the brain of a young poisoned librarian who is secretly an erotic fiction writer.
McIver herself confirmed the casting news via a video recorded for EW below:
Bell had experiences of doing voice-overs. The current “House of Lies” star previously narrated “Gossip Girl” for 6 seasons before eventually making a cameo in the series finale. She also voiced princess Anna in Disney‘s award-winning animated feature film, “Frozen“.
She is the last “Veronica Mars” alum to appear in Thomas’ “iZombie”. Other alumni who have starred in the series include Ryan Hansen, Percy Daggs III, David Starzyk, Adam Rose, and Daran Norris.
The show’s “Fifty Shades of Grey Matter” is slated to air on 26th January 2016.
