Fans of the classic Cartoon Network series may be in luck. According to Variety, a live-action version of The Powerpuff Girls series is in development at The CW.
Originally created by Craig McCracken, the show ran for 78 episodes from 1998 to 2005. The series featured a super team of little girls accidentally created by Professor Utonium when he combined sugar, spice, and everything nice with the mysterious Chemical X.
The sequel series will be an updated version of the show with the heroes now disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime-fighting. So viewers will have to see if the team can reunite now that the world needs them now more than ever.
The Powerpuff Girls sequel series hails from writers and executive producers Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody. Additionally, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden will executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Warner Bros. Television will also produce.
This would be yet another adult-oriented reboot of a classic IP at The CW. Berlanti Productions has previously developed Riverdale as a more mature version of the Archie Comics franchise. Additionally, it would fit in with the large number of superhero programs that The CW has developed over the years.
