The Powerpuff Girls Reboot Announced By Cartoon Network


Cartoon Network announced that a reboot of The Powerpuff Girls will be apart of their new 2015-2016 programming slate. The announcement was made at its Upfront presentation for advertisers.

Press Release:

The Powerpuff Girls: Slated for a 2016 launch, The Powerpuff Girls reboot will include an all-new television series produced by Cartoon Network Studios and a full licensing program slated to roll out across all regions. One of the network's most enduring original series, The Powerpuff Girls, which debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998, earned two Emmy® Awards, five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 78-episode run. The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes -- Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup -- whose mission in life alternates between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. Emmy® and BAFTA award winner Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) is on board as executive producer.

New episodes of the show stopped airing in 2005, but The Powerpuff Girls have appeared in two specials since then. One, in 2008 and another in 2014, but series creator Craig McCracken wasn't involved with that one.
