The reimagined Powerpuff Girls will follow the three superhero girls as they juggle school and saving the world before bedtime. The series is slated for a 2016 global launch and will include a brand-new television series, produced by Cartoon Network Studios, and a full licensing program that will roll out across all domestic and international regions. The announcement was made today by Cartoon Network as part of the 2015 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
The new series will be executive produced by Nick Jennings, who won an Emmy Award for his work on Cartoon Network's Adventure Time, and Bob Boyle, creator of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, will co-executive produce.
"It has been wonderful to see this new show team bring such passion and positive creative spirit to this iconic property," said Chief Content Officer, Rob Sorcher. "We know that fans of every age will appreciate this new take on saving the world before bedtime."
