The CW’s Powerpuff Girls Live-Action Reboot Isn’t Dead Yet


While The CW has been home to a number of buzzworthy series, the projects that don’t make their way onto the network are also talked about quite a bit. Among them is Powerpuff, a live-action reimagining of Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls, which filmed a pilot and made headlines with its set photos before ultimately being shuffled off-cycle in 2021.


Details have largely been slim about Powerpuff, outside of the update that Blossom actress Chloe Bennet would not be staying on the project. According to a new report from TVLine, the series still isn’t exactly dead yet, with the outlet claiming that the show is still “in some stage of development.”



Based on the original Cartoon Network animated series and characters created by Craig McCracken, Powerpuff would catch up with Blossom, Bubbles (Descendants‘ Dove Cameron), and Buttercup (Broadway actress Yana Perrault), who used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes but now are 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?

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
