If you were planning a return to Neptune before the premiere of the new Veronica Mars movie, Amazon has just made your search a lot easier.

Amazon has just announced that Amazon Prime Instant Video is now the exclusive streaming home of the entire Veronica Mars series (64 episodes). The show, which starred Kristen Bell as a student moonlighting as a private investigator, ran on UPN and the CW from 2004 to 2007.

“The Veronica Mars series has been popular on DVD and Amazon Instant Video for years, so we know how much Amazon customers love this iconic television show,” said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition. “We are excited to become the exclusive subscription streaming home for Veronica Mars and to be able to offer the entire TV series to Prime members to enjoy at no additional charge. With the movie coming on March 14, both die-hard fans and new viewers can easily catch-up on this great show.”

As Beale says, this gives you a little over two months to catch up on the series before the new Veronica Mars movie hits theaters.

The Veronica Mars movie traveled an interesting path from conception to production. Creator Rob Thomas went the Kickstarter route to fund the project and wound up with one of the most-successful crowdsourcing projects in recent memory. Thomas started out with a $2 million goal and to this point has raised over $5.7 million for the film. The Veronica Mars kickstarter was the fastest project to hit both $1 million and $2 million in funding, and has the most project backers in the history of Kickstarter.

On Wednesday, Amazon announced that they had secured the exclusive streaming rights to CBS's new series Extant, starring Halle Berry, which is set to debut in June.
