Jinkies! Velma, a Scooby-Doo animated series all about Velma Dinkle. Mindy Kaling will be Velma’s voice (&produce) in an adult Velma Dinkley prequel series on HBO Max!! An explicit and humorous spin that unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.
Velma comes from executive producer Mindy Kaling. Velma series on HBO max can apparently re-imagine the Scooby-Doo character as a girl of East Asian descent and living in a completely different world. HBO Max announced that Mindy Kaling would voice the Scooby-Doo character in a brand new adult animated comedy. Now as it’s been revealed that Velma series will feature an East Asian lead and Scooby gang.

Will, there be Scooby in Mindy Kalings’ Velma Series
The most shocking fact here, though, is that Scooby won’t appear in the series nor will the Mystery machine.
Of course, some people will be wondering how Velma could possibly be the same if she’s not riding Mystery Machine with Scooby. Velma is usually seen wearing a baggy orange turtleneck, a short red pleated skirt, knee socks, Mary Jane shoes, and a pair of black square glasses, which she frequently loses. Velma is seen as the “brains” of the group.
Velma will feature FREDDIE, SHAGGY, DAPHNE, AND VELMA HOWEVER NO SCOOBY-DOO. Scooby-Doo has been around since 1969 with multiple iterations and different takes. At this point, it really shouldn’t fucking matter how they approach an adult-oriented spin-off show about Velma. Just make it good.
How Many Episodes Will Velma Series Have?
Scooby-Doo character Velma will win a solo series on HBO Max. The animation had a 10 episode season commissioned by the broadcaster, and the protagonist will have a voice for Mindy Kaling of the Office. The project will explore Velma’s origin before joining the rest of the team.
An animated series about Velma (a character from Scooby-Doo) in the adult audience is under development by HBO Max. The show will have 10 episodes and tell Velma’s story before joining the rest of the team. Mindy Kaling will be the executive producer and voice actress of the character. Hopefully, she will be sarcastic and witty.
It’s doubtless that this adult animation will strip away a lot of the ghostbusting, the mystery part of the franchise, then, and conceive to flesh out the human characters and focus on their dynamics. There’s no word however on who may be a part of Kaling among the voice. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Velma series???
