See the stars playing Scooby-Doo characters in new Velma series: Mindy Kaling, Constance Wu, Sam Richardson, and more
Jinkies! Mindy Kaling has announced the cast of her upcoming animated Velma series and it's stacked higher than Shaggy's sandwiches.
Glenn Howerton, Sam Richardson, and Constance Wu will round out the Mystery Machine, Kaling shared at New York Comic Con on Thursday. Additional cast members announced include Jane Lynch, Wanda Sykes, Weird Al Yankovic, Ming-Na Wen, Yvonne Orji, and, of course, franchise staple Frank Welker.
The adult animated series will tell the origin story of Velma Dinkley (now South Asian, voiced by Kaling), "the unsung and under-appreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang," per the log line. The humorous spin will unmask the "complex and colorful past of one of America's most beloved mystery solvers."
Charlie Grandy (The Office, The Mindy Project) serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Kaling, Howard Klein, and Sam Register.
