Velma Season 2 is in Development Despite Divisive Reception

Earlier this year, HBO Max and Warner Bros. debuted Velma, an adult animated series based on the characters of the popular cartoon, Scooby-Doo. The first season was immediately met with a divisive reception from fans, but it looks like the show garnered enough attention for Warner Bros. to move ahead with a second season. Season 2 of Velma is now confirmed to be in development.

Deadline recently interviewed Warner Bros. Television Group Chairman and CEO Channing Dungey, who confirmed that the team is currently working on a second season of Velma. IGN corroborated the report with its own sources as well. An official renewal has yet to be announced, but it’s still possible for shows to be scrapped despite development of new seasons being underway.

As of writing, Velma holds a 42% critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The audience rating says otherwise, holding a 7% overall rating. On IMDB, Velma is one of the lowest rated television shows of all time with an overall user rating of 1.4 out of 10. Needless to say, the reception has been largely negative with much of the criticism pointed at the show’s jarring self-aware writing and mishandling of the Scooby-Doo source material and characters.

Velma stars Mindy Kaling as Velma as she deals with murders and mysteries during her high school years and before the founding of the Mystery Inc. gang. Glenn Howerton plays Fred, while Sam Richardson voices Norville (Shaggy) with Constance Wu as the voice of Daphne.

A second season of Velma shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that it quickly became the most watched animation show in HBO Max’s history following its debut episode. That said, HBO Max’s offering of animation is on the low side compared to other streaming services with more robust libraries of animation series, so that wasn’t a difficult achievement.
