The Powerpuff Girls may be coming to The CW. A new live-action series is currently in development by Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros. Television. The project will feature adult versions of the characters from the animated series created by Craig McCracken. Diablo Cody and Heather Regnier are writing the script for the pilot of the series.
“The Powerpuff Girls used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes. Now they’re disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?”
The Powerpuff Girls animated series debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998 and revolves around three young female superheroes — Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup — and their creator, Professor Utonium. The series ran for six seasons and ended in 2005. It was later rebooted in 2016 and that version ran for three seasons.
