What to Know

Critics Consensus

Jinkies! This radical reworking of the beloved Mystery Team has plenty of attitude and style, but it doesn't have the first clue for how to turn its clever subversion into engaging fun.

Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Heather Hogan Autostraddle Every episode is a cringy, eye-rolling slog that doesn’t seem to have any idea who its audience is, yet seems to despise them all the same. Jan 26, 2023 Full Review Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Shirley Li The Atlantic Its edginess comes at the expense of its own characters and punishes the audience for being invested. Like a certain Mystery Inc. member rummaging around in the dark for her glasses, the series is unfocused, confused, and desperately lost. Jan 23, 2023 Full Review Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) The 25-minute episodes are a suitable delivery vehicle for the humour, but across a season it has a lot of work to do to function as a cohesive whole. Rated: 3/5 Jan 20, 2023 Full Review Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Joe Reid Primetimer's frustrating to watch the show nervously wink at its audience, assuring them that what they're watching is smarter than the IP-mining trend that birthed it. It would be a better series if it could just calm down. Aug 6, 2023 Full Review Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Erin Maxwell LA Weekly/Village Voice It’s an empty shell of a farce that’s not clever or engrossing. Just gross. How Kaling thought she could get away with a remake minus the sleuthing, silliness, ghouls and “meddling kids” that made it a joy really is a mystery. Feb 22, 2023 Full Review Velma: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Bob Chipman Moviebob Central Scooby Don't. Feb 15, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
