The teaser has dropped for HBO Max’s adult-animated series Velma, based on the Scooby Doo heroine, Velma Dinkley.

Velma is exec produced by The Office’s Mindy Kaling who will also voice Velma in the 10-part series.

The series will also star Sam Richardson as Norville aka Shaggy, Constance Wu as Daphne and Glenn Howerton as Fred:

It was revealed recently that a new HBO Max Scooby-Doo animated movie, Trick or Treat, Scooby Doo, will reveal that Velma is – as many suspected – gay; we expect that to be theme carried over in the Velma series too.

Velma is an adult animated comedy series telling the origin story of Velma Dinkley, the unsung and under appreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. This original and humorous spin unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.

Velma is streaming in 2023 on HBO Max.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
