HBO Max’s new adult animated series Velma premiered on Jan. 12, 2023 and the show has released four episodes as of this writing on Jan. 23, 2023. Unfortunately, the series is not doing well with viewers. At all. Jinkies!

The animated comedy is a spin-off of sorts to the Scooby-Doo cartoon we all grew up with. But this time around, the story focuses on a the brains behind the Mystery Inc. gang and we get to see just how the infamous group was formed. But don’t expect to see everyone’s favorite crime-solving dog, as the series didn’t include him for a few reasons.

So where does the series rank on IMDB? What are reviewers saying about it? We’ve got the answer for you below.

What is HBO Max’s Velma rated on IMDb?
