Scooby-Doo’s ‘Velma’ Spin-Off is Adult, Gory and Hilarious
Part of the gang is back, y’all and jinkeys is it a good one. Velma from Scooby-Doo is about to make a huge comeback in her all-new spin-off series. A series that will surprise you from the get-go and only keep the shocks coming from there – and that’s just based on the first image.
Showrunner, Mindy Kaling introduced the upcoming HBO-Max series with a image that pretty much defines the direction that the series is going to take.
The image in question features a dead girl with the top of her skull chopped off and brain emptied. The onlookers are in a girls locker room and mostly nude. All that and Kaling still has money to be that the fact that Velma is of South Asian decent is going t be the more surprising part. And judging by today’s Twitter reactions she is right.
“Hopefully you noticed my Velma is South Asian,” Kaling said. “If people freak out about that, I don’t care.”
Those reactions go from the sort of comments that verge on racism and sexism to the ever famous “this is destroying my childhood” variety. Of course all those comments are dumb. The new Velma series is looking great and already very much for horror hounds. It looks to be following in the footsteps of the Harley Quinn HBO-Animated series which was pure genius. Seriously, if you are still haven’t watched the first couple of seasons of Harley Quinn you are missing out.
The new Velma series is for adults and will lovingly take all those things that we loved about Scooby-Doo and lovingly have fun with them. Best, of all its going to be gory.
