The Adult Scooby-Doo Series Returns with Trailer for Velma Season 2

Scooby-Doo is a property that’s been revamped time and again, but Max had decided to put a fun spin on Mystery Inc. with the adult-oriented Velma starring Mindy Kaling. The show is now going into its second season, and we have a trailer showcasing some more murder/mystery comedy and some traditional love triangle romance.

Check this out:

The official synopsis for the season reads:

“When an even spookier mystery grips Crystal Cove, Velma must find a way to balance her detective work with the demands of her newfound popularity before it’s too late. Meanwhile, her faithful friends Daphne, Norville, and Fred are powerless to help thanks to their own personal battles and worse… Detention.”

Unlike previous takes on Scooby, Velma decides to go all in with the craziness, even giving Velma herself some more character besides being the ‘smart one’ of the gang. Besides her, each of the other Mystery Inc. members have been given more colourful (albeit selfish) personalities.

Admittedly, the show was widely reviled by the online community when it first came out, but if Star Wars or any other huge fandom has taught us anything, it’s that the online vitriol doesn’t really reflect the actual number or views—just like how critical praise doesn’t really save a series that no one watches (sorry Netflix’s GLOW).

Either way, I’m rooting for Velma to do what it set out to do. It essentially feels like the cartoon Harley Quinn series without any of the familiar comic book characters. Maybe you can even spin it as a wackier version of Riverdale.

Velma Season 2 returns to Max on April 25.
