We already told you Veronica Mars would kick off PaleyFest 2014, the Paley Center for Media’s TV fan festival. Now, the whole schedule has been released — and if you’re still not over Lost, you’re going to want to book some tickets to Los Angeles, stat.

“With this amazing mix of new shows, returning favorites, and two high-profile cast reunions, PaleyFest 2014 will be a must-attend event for TV fans who attend every year from all over the world,” said Pat Mitchell, the president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media, in a release. “The caliber of talent participating in PaleyFest this year is absolutely unrivaled in the industry and we hope fans will not only have a great time interacting with the casts and creators, but will also learn about how their favorite shows get made.”

'Veronica Mars', 'American Horror Story: Coven' set for PaleyFest 2014

PaleyFest 2014 will be full of marshmallows this year.

No, not literally. But the annual TV conference will kick off its March 13-28 schedule with a panel reuniting the cast of Veronica Mars. The cast, including titular Kristen Bell, will surely have lots to tease: The Kickstarter-funded movie continuation of the tale will be released the following day. Other panels announced so far at the annual festival include American Horror Story: Coven and Pretty Little Liars. The full lineup will be announced Jan. 8.

But a reunion panel isn’t the only good news for Veronica Mars fans today. Pivot announced that it will begin airing reruns of the show, as well as repeats of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, in a new block featuring back-to-back episodes Mondays through Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET beginning Jan. 13, 2014.

'Veronica Mars' alum Jason Dohring to seek revenge on 'Tomorrow People' -- EXCLUSIVE

Jason Dohring has been nabbed for an ultra cool role on The Tomorrow People.

EW has learned exclusively that Dohring, well known for playing swoon-worthy Logan on Veronica Mars, has been tapped to guest star on the upcoming CW sci-fi drama as Killian McCrane, a former paranormal operative who once worked with John (Luke Mitchell) at Ultra, the paramilitary group that hunts down the Tomorrow People. In the episode, airing later this year, we learn Killian went off the grid but has resurfaced to exact revenge. Dohring, who in the role will reunite with onetime VMars writer and Tomorrow People exec producer Phil Klemmer, will appear in the fourth episode of the show’s freshman season, premiering Oct. 9.

Recently, the actor wrapped production on the much-buzzed-about Veronica Mars movie, the first footage of which was screened last month at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Speaking of SDCC, that’s also where EW caught up with the cast of The Tomorrow People, who stopped by our studio to talk about what fans can expect from the show. You can watch that interview below.

'Veronica Mars' movie first official photo -- EXCLUSIVE

It’s the first official photo from Warner Bros.’ Veronica Mars movie — and you don’t even have to pledge a donation to see it!

Exclusively on EW.com, here’s the first behind-the-scenes pic of Kristen Bell from the upcoming feature film based on the beloved cult series. Production got under way earlier this month in Los Angeles.

Veronica Mars, of course, was Kickstarted back to life thanks to creator Rob Thomas, the cast and fans raising more than $2 million to help fund the film in April (in fact, the grand total was $5.7 million — why, they’re going to have to add some CGI orcs or boat chases to spend it all). The movie reunites the show’s cast (last seen on The CW in 2007), including Bell, along with Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell and Ken Marino.

'Veronica Mars' movie: Max Greenfield confirms Deputy Leo's return -- VIDEO

Rejoice, Marshmallows: Deputy Leo is back!

Emmy-nominated New Girl star Max Greenfield revealed during a Google Hangout with Gold Derby on Tuesday that he plans to reprise his old Veronica Mars role for Rob Thomas’ upcoming crowd-funded movie. Greenfield played Leo, a sheriff’s deputy and a onetime love interest for Kristen Bell’s Veronica, in 11 episodes of the original series, appearing infrequently throughout all three seasons.

“I will be there — so will Deputy Leo,” Greenfield said with a grin. “It’s gonna be like a fun reunion. You wanna go in there and do some really solid work because obviously, people put up their own money to see this. I think everybody who’s playing a part in this thing has a responsibility, which is fun and exciting.”

Tina Majorino to reprise 'Veronica Mars' role in upcoming movie

Neptune High’s big class reunion just got a little more complete.

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas announced late last night that Tina Majorino has officially signed on to reprise her role as hacker extraordinaire Cindy “Mac” Mackenzie in his upcoming Mars film. Non-Mars fans may know the actress best as Deb, the title character’s side ponytail-favoring friend in 2004′s Napoleon Dynamite.

“To say I wrote Mac with Tina in mind would be an understatement,” Thomas said in an email sent to the film’s 91,585 Kickstarter backers. “I wrote Mac for Tina, and Tina only. Veronica needed a female friend, and a Q to her Bond. Tina felt like just the sort of girl that Veronica would like and respect. I couldn’t be more pleased that she’ll be with us for the movie.”

Majorino, who’s currently playing medical intern Heather Brooks on Grey’s Anatomy, joins a cast that already includes repeat players Kristen Bell (Veronica), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), Chris Lowell (Stosh “Piz” Piznarski), Francis Capra (Eli “Weevil” Navarro”), Sam Huntington (Luke), Amanda Noret (Madison Sinclair), and Daran Norris (Cliff McCormack). Production on the film is scheduled to begin this summer.

'Boy Meets World' cast to reunite in Austin: ATX Television Festival line-up announced -- EXCLUSIVE

Austin, Texas, the festival capital of the world!

This morning the ATX Television Festival (June 6-9) revealed exclusively to EW the first wave of programming for its second annual celebration of television’s history and future. Four punch-drunk days of world premieres, unaired pilots, cast reunions, beloved special guests, and trips down the memory lane of Rider Strong’s luxurious bang swoop.

True ’90s nostalgists can assess the aging process of their former small-screen friends at the first-ever cast reunion of Boy Meets World. Rider Strong, Ben Savage, Matt Lawrence, Maitland Ward, and series creator Michael Jacobs will all be in attendance. (Alas, Topanga Danielle Fishel has a wedding to attend that weekend and can’t be there in person.) “Boy Meets World ripped away my childhood and ruined me as an adult. Wait, reverse that,” said Strong, who played Shawn Hunter. “I’m so happy to be a part of ATX Television Festival. Boy Meets World was a magical time in my life and it’s incredibly satisfying to know that it still resonates with people.”

ATX will also welcome three networks who come bearing premiere programming. AMC will world premiere the pilot episode of its new cop drama Low Winter Sun with several cast members, including Lennie James (The Walking Dead), in attendance. TNT will world premiere the first episode of season 2′s Perception, with series stars Rachel Leigh Cook and Scott Wolf on hand. And IFC will also join the party, bearing the first episode of season 2 of their talk show Comedy Bang! Bang! with host/star Scott Aukerman cracking wise in person. READ FULL STORY
