Mindy Kaling’s ‘Velma’ gets a second season

Max has renewed Mindy Kaling’s “Velma” for a second season, Deadline reports.

The adult animated series follows the origin story of Velma Dinkley (Kaling), a member of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. Velma is a young teenager trying to solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance.

Glenn Howerton voices Fred Rogers, a 16-year-old murder suspect and Velma’s crush. Constance Wu voices Daphne Blake, Velma’s former best friend who is now a popular girl. Sam Richardson voices Norville Rodgers, also known as Shaggy, Velma’s best friend.

The renewal was announced by executive vice president of original comedy and adult animation for Max and Adult Swim Suzanna Makkos, Variety reports.

“The series that we create at Max are art and voice driven, with character and comedy coming before anything else,” Makkos said during a “Share With” session, according to Variety. “We’re always looking for hard comedy with heart and edge, diverse and inclusive shows with underlying thematic resonance, and character design that showcases the hand of the artist. I am so excited to share these incredible series with the world, and continue to show why Max is a great home for adult animation.”
