According to Deadline, the new Scooby-Doo series has officially set for release in 2019. The series will once again premiere on the Boomerang streaming service, though it may air on television at some point. There has been a slight title change, however. The series is now called "Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?" rather than "Guess Who, Scooby-Doo?" as previously announced by Grey Griffin, the voice actress for Daphne.
In the same vein as the New Scooby-Doo Movies, the new show will feature currently-famous guest stars from pop culture, both real-life and animated. Guest stars currently slated to appear in the show include Halsey, Sia, Mark Hamill, Chris Paul, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ricky Gervais, Kenan Thompson, and Bill Nye, The Science Guy. Fictional guest stars include Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy), Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White), Wonder Woman, The Flash and Sherlock Holmes.
You may also notice that the series title card was designed based off of the original series' title card (Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?)
Sam Register serves as the series producer, along with Chris Bailey, who is perhaps most famous for his work on Kim Possible.
In addition to the Boomerang announcement of the series, Halsey discussed her upcoming voice acting role in the series during a recent interview with Billboard.
“I do it kind of on the low, I don’t put it under my own name,” she says. “So I do like Scooby-Doo and American Dad. I have like a weird voice, so I embrace it. So I’d probably love to get into something where I could be really animated, cause I’m pretty animated.”
In addition to the new series, Boomerang also announced that the remaining 11 episodes of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! would be added to the streaming service sometime this year. The series has already finished airing in nearly every other country and the episodes have previously aired in a late-night death slot on Boomerang in the US.
A new Flintstones series, entitled "Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs" was also announced for release on the streaming service, and is also set for a 2019.

Omg Sia :o , I wonder how they´re gonna approach that. Mark Hamill was on " Night of the living Doo" as himself, and in some of the movies/series as a VA, I hope he gets a whole episode this time.

Oh my goodness, I can't believe I forgot Mark Hamill was in "Night of the Living Doo!" I hope he gets a whole episode as well.

I am literally stoked for this show to premiere next year! Being that the New Scooby Doo Movies was one of my favorite series, I've been waiting for the franchise to do this sort of "spin off" for quite some time! With all the the crossover movies lately I've been wondering if they would make a show like that as well, and it looks like they are! Besides the pretty impressive guest lineup they announced so far, I'm hoping the animation or tone of this series will be more in the style of SDWAY / TNSDM, and that gives me hope because the title card itself for this new show is very similar to the original "Scooby Doo Where Are You" logo!

I love The New Scooby-Doo Movies as well. It was definitely one of my favorite series too! I haven't minded the new animation with the past couple of series, but I would also to see a series return to the classic animation, or at least the one they're currently doing in the DTVs. I was excited about the title card too! :)
