A "Veronica Mars" marathon will air on SOAPnet on Father's Day.

Don't have any plans this Father's Day? Then grab a comfy couch cushion, snacks and celebrate one of TV's best dads, Keith Mars, with SOAPnet's "Veronica Mars" marathon.

SOAPnet's "A 'Veronica Mars' Marathon: Who's Your Daddy?" will air Sun., June 17, 3-7 p.m. ET and feature episodes that deal with one of Season 1's best plots: Who is Veronica Mars' biological father?

The episodes included are:

"Like a Virgin" -- Veronica gets more information than she’s looking for when she visits Lilly’s killer in jail and he tells her that Keith isn’t her biological father.

"Drinking the Kool-Aid" -- Veronica tricks Keith into unknowingly taking a paternity test; Keith proves to Veronica that he's her father in all the ways that truly count.

"Hot Dogs" -- Keith secretly gets samples and runs a DNA test on Veronica.

"Leave it to Beaver" -- Keith gets the results of the DNA test back and tells Veronica who her father really is. Meanwhile, when a desperate Aaron attacks Veronica, Keith will do anything to save her.

"Veronica Mars" joined SOAPnet's lineup in April and now airs Monday-Friday at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 1-4 p.m.; and Sundays 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

And for fans hoping to get a dose of new "Veronica Mars" with a film, the parties involved are right there with you. Series star Kristen Bell told The Huffington Post she's game.

"I don't know if it will ever come to be, but it's not off the table for me," Bell said in later 2011. "I would make time for it in a heartbeat and that's a decent part of it done, when you've cast Veronica Mars. I know [creator] Rob Thomas has it in his heart to make it; this is his baby. It's not off the table for any of us. We're just still trying to champion the powers that be to believe us. The reality is, we need a few million dollars to do it and that's a lot of money. It's difficult to convince a studio to take that risk when you're proposing to them to make a movie of a television show that's been off the air for four years."
