Project producer Tony Cervone confirmed the fan’s guesses: he stated that Velma was always a lesbian in the 2010 animated series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, which restarted the classic comic strip in 1969. He emphasized that the character was created as homosexual:
‘I said this before and will say it again: Velma is not bisexual – she is a lesbian. We have outlined our position on this issue as clearly as it was possible ten years ago. Most fans understood this. For those who do not understand, I advise you to review the series: everything is obvious there. It’s not even news,’ – he wrote on Instagram.

Marcie and Velma – Mystery Incorporated. I obviously don’t represent every version of Velma Dinkley, but I am one of the key people that represents this one. We made our intentions as clear as we could ten years ago. Most of our fans got it. To those that didn’t, I suggest you look closer. There’s no new news here.
Velma’s homosexuality has been a topic of discussion since the very first appearance of this character in the original comics, but it has never been emphasized: in the 2010 series, on the contrary, they decided to emphasize it.
