An Update on Velma
There's been a lot of news with Velma recently with the NYCC panel recently, so much in fact that there are a few things I've missed reporting on. Scoobylover amazingly compiled a ton of information about everything that's been released from the show, so I wanted to make this post to fill in the gaps and report on some of the information from the NYCC that I wasn't aware of until now.
During the NYCC panel on October 6, series creators Mindy Kaling and Charlie Grandy said the show could be best described as a crime show with elements of a teenage sitcom. Mindy also revealed some vague details about plots for two of the episodes. There will be an episode centered around prom, and another about a "fog festival."
Mindy mentioned that Velma will be portrayed as a high school outcast who is a bit snarky. She says that she is looking forward to showing an Indian father-daughter relationship in a different way than it has traditionally been done in the past.
A Twitter thread has also revealed the entire recurring cast, except for Ken Leung whose character is still unknown.
Thanks so much again to Scoobylover for providing all this information!

There are memes of a weird face she kept making in her Disney Channel movie Radio Rebel. It’s really funny

Wait a second is this article telling me that Daphne's mother will be a lesbian in this show? Just like how Velma was and is in Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!?

Yes Jakob, there are more than one lesbians existing on this planet, you’re welcome for the free fun fact.

is fog festival a thing in the US or something made up for the show? I'm confused
10/19/2022 06:11:13 pm
I've never heard of it before either and I live in the US, but I looked it up and it looks like the city of Pacifica, CA has one, so it's not something made up for the show. Maybe that's where the show got the idea, since I know a lot of writers live in this area of California. https://pacificcoastfogfest.com/
