"HBO Max is the perfect home for these 'meddling kids' and their dog,’ " said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, and president TNT, TBS and TruTV.

As they race to stop this global “dogpocalypse,” the gang discovers Scooby has a secret legacy and an epic destiny greater than anyone imagined.
