A live-action Scooby-Doo series is in the works for Netflix

The spectators' favorite band of nosy people will soon be back in action. Without Sarah Michelle Gellar?

Buisness is back. At the wheel of the Mystery MachineFred, Daphné, Vera, Samy and Scoobydoobydoo!! will be able to solve new puzzles and unmask the bad guys. After fifty-five years of existence, several seasons with different designs – like Scooby-Doo: Associated Mysteries (2010-2013) – animated films and already five live actions, Scooby Doo and his friends return in a new live action series: Scooby-Doo! The Live-Action Series. Does this deserve a scooby snack?

According to several sources, the approximately one-hour series is produced by Warner Bros. Studios. Television and will be broadcast by Netflix. For the moment, we do not yet know the synopsis or the casting. Can we expect to find Sarah Michelle Gellar (Daphne), Matthew Lilliard (Samy), Freddie Prinze Jr. (Fred) and Linda Cardellini (Vera), stars of the two films that have become cult Scooby-Doo (2002) and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) ? Or those of the reboots Scooby-Doo: The Mystery Begins (2009), Scooby-doo and the Lake Monster (2010) and Daphne and Vera (2018)? Or just new faces?

“I have a clue!” Last year, Freddie Prinze Fr revealed that he did not wish to return for a third Scooby-Doo film.

“That wouldn't be something I would do. I have zero interest in doing that, I mean, it was tricky. It's not for me.”

But why refuse to play with his friends and his life partner Sarah Michelle Gellar? The reason would come from the studios. The actor and Warner Bros. producer of the two original live actions are not on good terms. Also, with this new series produced by the same studios, it seems unlikely to see Freddie Prinze Jr return to the screen. And what would Associated Mysteries be without this interpretation?

Recently, the series from our childhood saw a new adaptation proposed by HBO around the character of Velma (Vera in French) who was officially described as gay. It remains to be seen whether this new Netflix series will make a clean slate or take up some elements from previous adaptations.
