HBO Max has announced a new animated series for everyone’s favorite unsung hero, titled Velma. The brains behind the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc is finally getting an origin story! They also shared that they have signed comedic genius Mindy Kaling to not only serve as executive producer but she will also voice the lead in Velma!
The series has been described as “an original and humorous spin that unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.” Kaling isn’t the first access to bring the brainiac to life. She follows in the footsteps of Gina Rodriquez, Kate Micucci, Hayley Kiyoko and Linda Cardellini.
We don’t have much information outside a basic description and Kaling’s casting. But I am going to venture to guess that the show will definitely feature a few mysteries along the way. We might even get a chance to see how Velma herself joined the rest of the gang. Check back with us as more news comes out surrounding this upcoming series.
Let us know on social media and in the comments below how excited you are to see this series come to life!
