Ruh Roh! It Seems to Be Time for Another Scooby-Doo Series

Zoinks! It’s been more than 20 years since the live-action Scooby-Doo movie (pictured above) hit theaters, and you know what that means, don’t you? It’s time for another reboot! This time, according to Variety, the mystery-solving youths are on their way to being reborn as a series for Netflix.

The weird part is, said series is described as a “one-hour drama project.” Is this timeline trying to manifest a dark and gritty Scooby-Doo? I would ask what we’ve done to deserve this, but there are so many possible answers.

But lo, let us not forget that there have, in fact, been other live-action Scoobys-Doo since the extremely early-aughts versions that starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, and Linda Cardellini. There were, thought you may have missed them, live-action TV movies in 2009 and 2010.

And, yes, there have been ever so many cartoon versions since the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You aired in the late ’60s and early ’70s (and went on to exist in reruns for seemingly eternity). Essentially, some form of Scooby-Doo has been on screens since 1969, with a small break for most of the ’90s. Presently, we have the Mindy Kaling-starring Velma series, which was recently renewed for a second season. (A TV movie called Scoob! Holiday Haunt was one of the things Warner Bros. axed last year.)

Nothing has been revealed about the newest Doo other than some of the behind-the-camera folks involved. Josh Appelbaum (who is currently also involved in Disney’s Space Mountain) and Scott Rosenberg (a producer on From and Citadel) are writing and executive producing the series, which also has, on the production side, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Leigh London Redman from Berlanti Productions. No word on how creepy Scooby will look. Real dog? CGI nightmare? It all remains to be seen. icon-paragraph-end
