    Jinkies! It looks like Velma has found its Scooby gang. 

    HBO announced Thursday that Glenn Howerton (A.P. BioIt's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Sam Richardson (Veep), and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) had joined the cast to voice Fred, Shaggy, and Daphne respectively. The trio completes the Mystery Incorporated of Mindy Kaling's prequel series, which will also see her lend her voice to the titular character.

    Other stars voicing characters on Velma include Jane Lynch (Glee), Wanda Sykes, Cherry Jones, Ken Leung, Nicole Byer, Shay Mitchell, Weird Al Yankovic, and many more. 

    While few details are known about the Scooby-Doo spinoff thus far, HBO's logline for Velma tells us the series "unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers".

    Velma's ten-episode first season is set to debut in 2023.
