Velma teases a fun storyline
The HBO trailer VELMA, from The Mindy Kaling was released recently, unfortunately the vibes this time around are very much not of the child-friendly sort.
Velma is a female, teenage detective character from the Scooby-Doo cartoon and films. She is portrayed as the show’s sharpest protagonist, and she is frequently the one who solves the episode’s core mystery.
She also dresses in an orange turtleneck sweater, black glasses, and knee-high socks. With the recent stories that she is, in fact, a lesbian, as well as the less admirable matter of her rather questionable police-centric action in MultiVersus,
About the cast:
Mindy Kaling’s Velma — the HBO Max animated series which is based on the Scooby-Doo character, has assembled a strong voice cast.
Along with Kaling, Glenn Howerton, Sam Richardson, and Constance Wu will appear in the animated series for adults that follows the life of Velma Dinkley, the unrecognised brains behind Mystery Inc. At New York Comic Con on Thursday, the four shared a stage appearance.
In the series, Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) will play Fred. Norville, alias Shaggy, will be voiced by Richardson (Veep, The Afterparty), and Daphne will be played by Wu (Lyle, Lyle Crocodile).
‘Velma’ Showrunner Explains Scooby-Doo’s Absence:
Longtime viewers of the animated series who wish to combine their nostalgia with a more sophisticated sense of humour can enjoy “Velma,” a new adult animated comedy in which Mindy Kaling voices the title character. It includes adult versions of the mystery machine’s crew, but Scooby won’t be making any appearances to make sure Velma is the star of the show.
Scooby-Doo was intentionally left out of the series, according to producer Charlie Grandy, in an effort to set the adult programme apart from the kid-friendly source material.
The teaser is incredibly ironic, with Velma composing an angry note to HBO Max about a “genre bleeding, comedy origin story” of Jury Jetson, concluding that “if there’s one thing that the internet agrees on, it’s that you should never, ever change anything!”
Velma is streaming in 2023 on HBO Max.
