The show is set before Mystery Inc. was formally assembled.

There’s a very logical explanation for all this.

The highly-anticipated animated Velma series finally has a release date on HBO Max: Thursday, January 12, 2023. With the resurfaced discourse surrounding Velma liking women, LGBTQ+ fans couldn’t be more excited about this new show focusing on the character.

Developed by Charlie Grandy, the cast of Velma features Mindy Kaling (Velma), Constance Wu (Daphne), Glenn Howerton (Fred), and Sam Richardson (Norville “Shaggy” Rogers), among other high-profile actors voicing minor characters.

This first season of Velma will include 10 episodes, and you can watch the official trailer for the series below.

On this version of Velma, Mystery Inc. hasn’t been officially formed yet. Velma, Daphne, Fred, and Norville are still just friends who seem to get caught up in a “love quadrangle” between them. For instance, both Daphne and Norville appear to have a crush on Velma. In the meantime, the titular character is into Fred.

Though HBO Max has been criticized recently for canceling LGBTQ+ shows and erasing them from its streaming library, this is certainly a queer-inclusive series that fans are very much looking forward to.

Jinkies – we can’t wait to see Velma & co. getting into all sorts of different adventures!

Velma premieres Thursday, January 12, 2023 on HBO Max.

Is Velma LGBTQ+?

Velma's LGBTQ+ identity was confirmed in a recent animated movie within the franchise.

What ethnicity is Velma?

On HBO Max's Velma, the character will be South Asian.
