According to Tony Cervone and ComicBookMovie.com, a follow-up to SCOOB! is coming out soon! Here is a quote from Tony's interview with CBM: "Actually, we are kicking the tyres on a follow-up to Scoob! It hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s something we’re all excited about. The whole creative team that made the first movie is still around and back and working on something new. It was neat to create this Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe, and it’s exciting to return to it."
I'm really excited for this follow-up! Notice that he did say "follow-up," not "sequel" as the CBM article says, so I think it's very possible we could get a SCOOB! television series instead of a second film.

I'm excited to see the SCOOB series

We don't know for certain that it will be a scoob series. Please keep in mind the term Follow-up, refers to a continuation or repetition of something that has already been started or done.

i don't doubt a series because they made a CGI spongebob series after the last spongebob movie

I think it's possible this could be anything, but as The Cop said, I think getting a series is equally as likely to us getting a sequel. I respect your opinion though Whackman.
I think that's a great point! The typical response would be "sequel" but his choice of words definitely seems like something else is in the works. Although unfortunately the reason he avoided "sequel" may be because "follow-up" would cover a project not focused on Scooby and the gang, like perhaps a Captain Caveman project, or something about one of the other characters mentioned/hinted at from the H-B universe.... That's worst case scenario though. Thinking more positively, he probably avoided saying "sequel" because it's something that isn't a standard feature film.... so something like a Direct-To-Video movie, a one-off special (a Christmas special perhaps? haha), or as you mentioned a TV series (or limited series)... it could also include a comic book series, though that seems unlikely considering he said the movie's team is working on it. Whatever it turns out to be though, I'm excited because it sounds like it would be produced simultaneously with "Velma," since they're different teams of animators, and could possibly result in us having DUAL Scooby projects! That'd be awesome.

I hadn't even thought about the possibility of it being a project for another show. This film was supposed to start the Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe, even though we haven't seen any other films in that vein yet (with the exception of Jellystone). Oh my gosh, a SCOOB! Christmas special would be incredible hahaha. That's what I want now. The Star Wars Christmas Special except it's SCOOB! lol. I also doubt they'd have the movie's team work on a SCOOB! comic, so I think a one-off special, DTV film, or television series is the mostly likely option. Given the time this was announced, I think it's very likely we could get dual Scooby projects! We've never had that before, unless you count Laff-a-Lympics, so that would be incredible to see!

Producing animated shows take time I doubt WB would produce two Scooby-doo shows at the same. Velma may not be ready for HBO Max untill at least next year. even if Scoob does turn out to be a series in the works well then it may take a year or two before it is finshied
Why wouldn’t they produce two simultaneously? They’re for different audiences, likely in different animation styles and coming from two separate production teams. WB Animation already makes several series focused on the same properties concurrent with one another. If the Scoob! follow-up does turn out to be a series, since Mr. Cervone has stated that they’re already “working on it,” I would imagine it’s not too far behind where the Velma series is at, meaning that maybe they won’t premiere the same time, but there could definitely be some overlap in their release. But only time will tell.

I suppose anything is possible, but I agree with what Bradford said about there likely being two different teams working on this and Velma. Given that, I don't think they would have any problem being able to release the two shows simultaneously (if the SCOOB! follow-up is indeed a series).

The spongebob franchise, and the Scooby-Doo universe are two different things just because spongebob went the route doesn't necessarily mean that scoob will go that route. at any rate if they do decide to make scoob series, then it make take a year or two to make it.
They are different, but you’d be surprised how much studios “borrow” ideas/plans after seeing success from other studios. Heck, wasn’t a major deciding factor in putting Scoob! on demand instead of theaters the success of Universal’s Trolls 2? So I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re looking at the success of SpongeBob - or even the Trolls series being made for the Peacock streaming service - and taking that approach with their IP. Everybody wants kids content for their streaming platforms and this is an easy way to lessen the risk of something totally new and original.

I'd very much argue that Trolls 2 paved the way for them to think about that route with SCOOB! as well. I don't believe they even made the decision to move SCOOB!'s release from theaters to streaming until after Trolls 2 was released. I would also add that the development of a SCOOB! series, if there was one, would be sped up because they've already developed the concept behind the characters from the film, which takes a long time. They're building off something they've already created, so I think the possibility that this would be released at the same time as Velma is pretty likely. It's all just speculation though because there's really no way to know for sure what's going to happen. I'm just excited at the possibility that we might be getting a series adaption of SCOOB! :)

I'd be cool with sequel, I really enjoyed the first one. I know that it wasn't a typical mystery like in every other Scooby-Doo movie, but I enjoyed the change of pace with Scooby and his friends going on an adventure to save the world. Maybe if COVID didn't hit and the movie was shown in theaters, I think people may have enjoyed it a lot better.

I really enjoyed SCOOB! as well, though I know many people didn't like it. I think the film would have done a lot better financially if it was in theaters.
