Live-action Powerpuff Girls series that sees the girls as adults who resent their crime-fighting childhoods, ordered by the CW

The CW has ordered a pilot for a live-action Powerpuff Girls series.

This series, which was in development as of last August, will center on the girls who are now disillusioned twenty-something-year-olds who resent that they lost their childhood to years of fighting crime, according to Variety. The series will answer the question of whether or not the former team reunites once more when their crime-fighting skills are needed again.

This series comes by way of writers and executive producers, Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody, with the latter executive producing under the banner of Vita Vera Films. Regnier worked on the recent Veronica Mars revival, iZombie, and Sleepy Hollow while Cody is best known for writing Juno and working on Jennifer's Body and Young Adult.

Greg Berlanti, David Madden, and Sarah Schechter will executive produce the show under the Berlanti Productions banner. Erika Kennair and Warner Bros. Television will produce the show.

The Powerpuff Girls ran for six seasons for a total of 78 episodes between 1998 and 2005. The original animated series was created by Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network and centered around three superhero crimefighters by the names of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. These girls were created when Professor Utonium combined "sugar, spice, and everything nice with the mysterious Chemical X," as the show's intro reminded you with every episode.

This is just going to be very disappointing.

I heard the green one will be transitioning to a man.

Yay more pandering to millennial nostagia addicts and Zoomers who romanticize that period of time.

I grew up in this era of the late 90s/early 2000s. It was fun but also the start of the decline of America. I think people need to move on.

It doesn't count unless he also is transitioning to Blackness, like I did.

If there's one thing that draws me to a show, it's that it stars twentysomethings who are full of resentment and feel put upon.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
