The eagerly awaited full trailer for ‘Velma’ has finally arrived, unveiling Mindy Kaling’s portrayal of the Indian-American version of the beloved character in this standalone, adult-oriented animated series. Serving as a spinoff of the iconic Scooby-Doo franchise, ‘Velma’ focuses on the titular character, a key member of Mystery Inc., a group of amateur sleuths and ghost hunters.

Known as the brain of the group, Velma is recognized for her signature large glasses, turtleneck sweater, and A-line skirt.
