The details:
  • Max and Adult Swim’s executive vice president of original comedy and adult animation, Suzanna Makkos, confirmed the “Velma” renewal in June 2023.
  • The renewal announcement came months after “Velma” had been bombarded with low-rating reviews on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. The show, which stars Kaling as the voice of the titular character, received mostly negative reviews after its debut on Jan. 12.
  • Despite the abysmal reception, “Velma” still saw a 127% popularity spike in late January, even surpassing the live-action series adaptation “The Last of Us” in viewership.
  • “Velma” follows the story of Velma Dinkley, the brains behind the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. The story is set when Velma is still in high school.
  • Joining Kaling in the show are Sam Richardson as Shaggy, Constance Wu as Daphne and Glenn Howerton as Fred.
Catching up:
  • Besides “Velma,” Kaling is also developing a basketball comedy series set in the professional basketball world. Former Disney Channel star Brenda Song is also on board in the project.
