As you can probably gather from the title, it focuses on the story of one Velma Dinkley. Velma is set to offer a backstory to the classic character from the Scooby-Doo franchise.

A synopsis for the new HBO series reads as follows:

An adult animated comedy series telling the origin story of Velma Dinkley (Mindy Kaling), the unsung and underappreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. This original and humorous spin unmasks the complex and colourful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.

Can we see a trailer?

Jinkies! Of course you can. HBO dropped a trailer for Velma a few months back; you can find it below:
