Lo spettacolo, which will tell the origin story of Velma Dinkley of the Scooby Doo gang, focuses on the surprising past of one of the most famous and beloved teen sleuths in animated history.

però, Velma hasn’t been without criticism, and Kaling responded at New York Comic Con in October to trollsobjections about the iconic character now being of South Asian descent.

The Mindy Project stella, 43, admitted that she isconstantly surprised by reactions to everything on social media,” per Insider.

I think of the characters in this as so iconic, but in no way is the gang defined by their whiteness, except for Fred,” lei spiegò. “Così, I was a little bit surprised and I think most Indian-American girls when they see this skeptical, hardworking, kind of underappreciated character, can identify with her.

I think the vast majority of people are excited and ready for it and the show is for them,” lei ha aggiunto.
