The sticker of the black circle with the bananas in the middle on Veronica's locker is the album cover of The Dandy Warhols. The album features the theme song 'We Used to Be Friends'.
In an attempt to keep the struggling show on the air after its third season, creator Rob Thomas filmed an extended pitch for the fourth season that advances the show's timeline considerably. Instead of being a college undergraduate, as she was at the end of season three, in the spec season four, Veronica has graduated from college and the FBI Academy and is starting her first day as a FBI agent. The pitch contained a whole new cast of heretofore unseen characters, and, except for Veronica herself, none of the characters from the show's previous seasons. The CW failed to pick up this new version of "Veronica Mars," and the show was canceled.
In the German dubbing Logan Echolls is voiced by the same voice actor, Gerrit Schmidt-Foß, who is the main German voice for Leonardo DiCaprio.
After the end of Season 2, TV critic Alan Sepinwall asked show creator Rob Thomas which elements revealed in the finale were planned ahead, and Thomas replied, "We knew that Beaver was the killer of Season 2 when we introduced him in Season 1. We knew his motivation, so playing him as the picked-upon, less-manly Casablancas boy was all by design." But Thomas also told Sepinwall that they did not plan for the eventual reveal that Cassidy had raped Veronica until the writing for Season 1 was all finished.
Jason Dohring initially auditioned for the role of Duncan while Teddy Dunn initially auditioned for the role of Logan.
Logan drives a yellow Nissan XTerra S for seasons one and two. He drives a black Range Rover for season three.
Harry Hamlin (Aaron Echolls) and Lisa Rinna (Lynn Echolls) are a real-life married couple. They have been married since 1997. They have 2 daughters.
The fireplace in Logan's hotel room in seasons 2 & 3 is a square with brackets on every corner. Silver pictures was the producer of Veronica Mars (2004). This was the shape of the silver pictures logo.
Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars (2004), says on the season 3 DVD extras that Ryan Hansen's character Dick Casablancas was not originally meant to be a series regular. He was first cast for the second episode, as a nameless, rich Neptune resident with one line ("Logan!"). Thomas said that they read many young actors for the line, and when it came down to a choice between Hansen or another actor, they cast Hansen purely because he had "good hair."
UPN, the network that airs Veronica Mars (2004), were concerned during early episodes that viewers would confuse Teddy Dunn and Jason Dohring, who play Duncan and Logan, respectively. A color code was created where Dunn wore blues, and Dohring wore earth tones (greens, browns, etc). The color code was maintained for the duration of the series.
Both actresses Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter were stars on the also iconic TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). "Buffy" creator Joss Whedon, a declared fan of "Veronica Mars," also had a cameo in an episode.
Both Sam Huntington (Luke) and Aaron Ashmore (Troy) went on to play the character "Jimmy Olsen" in different adaptations of the Superman comics. Huntington portrayed Olsen in the feature film Superman Returns (2006) while Ashmore took over the role of Olsen on the small screen in Smallville (2001).
Jason Dohring and wife, Lauren Kutner, named their daughter Lilly with the same spelling as character Lilly Kane.
The only two actresses considered for the role of Kendall Casablancas were Heather Graham and Charisma Carpenter. Graham was working on Emily's Reasons Why Not (2006), and Carpenter was an actual fan of Veronica Mars (2004), so she ended up being cast in the role.
The lead character was originally going to be in a novel written by show creator, Rob Thomas.
