The website Vulture.com made a post earlier today about upcoming TV shows on HBO Max. Within this post, Velma is mentioned as having a January 2023 release date. There is no information about a specific date, but this seems to be our first clue to the month that the show will be released. However, it should be noted that no other sites have listed this release date; but Vulture tends to usually be pretty reliable, and at least for me, that pushes this beyond just being a rumor. I still wouldn't interpret this as being set in stone, though.

at this point, i really could care less about this show, espically since the holiday movie and most likely the krypto movie were shelved yet this one is getting made? sorry but this series tries too hard to change pretty much everything about scooby doo gang.

I completely agree with you. I’ll watch the first episode of Velma and if the show is bad then I’ll stop watching after the first episode.

Hi, I am so excited for Velma! I hope we can original formala show after Mystery Pups from Thomas Beaumont.

@Thomas Beaumont I'm excited for the show too!

I think the fact that there’s a lot of changes to to the characters and that there’s no Scooby Doo makes it feel that this series will be canceled after one season. However, I could be wrong. I’ll give it a try when the first episode drops.
11/17/2022 07:34:05 pm
Yeah, I could see this getting cancelled after just a season too with all the backlash and changes.

But there's people who have announced they're already working on the second season of this show. Unless they pull a Holiday Haunt, it's pretty much a guarantee to be more than one season.
11/18/2022 06:12:25 am
I was thinking maybe they'd pull a Holiday Haunt if the backlash was really bad, because I don't really trust WB to follow through with something if it's not not financially profitable for them (as we saw with Holiday Haunt, which is so much safer than this is). I'm not really sure though.

I’m still gonna watch the show. It still looks like an interesting concept for an adult animation show. I was hoping that it would premiere by the end of this year. I just wished they actually used Scooby Doo in it. They said that they wasn’t gonna use him to to solidify that this is a mature cartoon, but I think it’s more of a studio decision.
11/17/2022 07:35:17 pm
Yeah, I agree that it's more of a studio decision. I'm imagining they didn't want to use Scooby because they didn't want him associated with mature content since WB's target audience for traditional Scooby cartoons is young audiences. I'll be very interested to see how the show feels without Scooby.

We both enjoyed the Daphne and Velma, and that didn’t have Scooby. So I imagine it will be the same here! I hope the writing is good and will have a good amount of comedy to keep me interested. But either way, I know I’m gonna watch every episode anyway.
11/18/2022 06:14:31 am
I'm really hoping that will be the case. I didn't really mind Scooby not being in Daphne & Velma (the movie or his rare appearances/inability to talk in the novels), so I hope I won't mind it here either! And yeah, I think I'll really enjoy the comedy based on the teaser. I'll also definitely be watching every episode and reviewing it for the blog, regardless of how bad it is.

Charlie (showrunner along with Mindy) said that they were having a hard time fitting Scooby in it and then the studio was like "You can use Scooby btw".
11/20/2022 07:54:50 am
That's really interesting. I had assumed that WB didn't want them to use Scooby so that the show wouldn't taint his character by being too mature.
11/18/2022 12:45:18 pm
I'll watch the first episode and see.
11/18/2022 04:14:22 pm
I am livid
11/19/2022 08:10:52 am
11/19/2022 09:28:51 am
Am not looking forward to this show at all tbh it looks trash
11/19/2022 12:06:26 pm
Okay, fair enough. The trailer has me intrigued and I'm interested to see how the first episode will be.
