The Powerpuff Girls Live-Action Show in the Works at The CW

The Powerpuff Girls is now the latest property to be getting an out-of-the-ordinary, live-action makeover. Deadline reports that the superhero series will air on The CW and sees Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup aged up as “disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting.” When Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions plan to air this reworking of the Cartoon Network’s classic series is not yet set.

Diablo Cody (Juno, United States of Tara) and Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars, iZombie) are serving as executive producers and will also be writers for The Powerpuff Girls live-action show.

For those who need a refresher on the original animated series, Cartoon Network first brought The Powerpuff Girls to small screens in 1998, debuting the childhood story of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, three girls with extraordinary powers. With the show having received its own movie in 2002 and a second reboot show in 2016, The CW has plenty of material to work with, even if it seems the network is going in a bold new direction.

Stay tuned for more updates on The CW’s The Powerpuff Girls live-action show, including who will be picked to play the three main characters, more about the show’s story, and when the series will premiere.
