The Powerpuff Girls are coming back again, as Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. have announced a reboot of the beloved cartoon.
The show is in development at Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, the studio behind The Amazing World of Gumball and Craig McCracken, the creator of the original Powerpuff Girls series, is attached to develop the project. In addition, McCracken is also working on a reboot of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, which is aimed at preschoolers. That show originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2004 to 2009.
The Powerpuff Girls originally debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998 and ran for 78 episodes until it ended in 2005. The show follows supergirls Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup as they face off against supervillains while also dealing with the issues young children face while growing up.
The Powerpuff Girls franchise has already seen its share of spinoffs and reboots. In 2016, the show was rebooted by Cartoon Network, airing 119 episodes over three seasons.
And, there’s the live-action Powerpuff Girls CW series that has yet to see the light of day. The live-action version has faced a number of development issues, including re-shooting the pilot after negative feedback from executives and losing the actor who was set to play Blossom.
