In today's "everything old is new again" news: The CW Network is developing a live-action Powerpuff Girls series — with a twist. Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles are now "disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting." Huh, ok.
The network has put in development The Powerpuff Girls, a live-action series based on the original Cartoon Network animated series created by Craig McCracken. The project, featuring adult versions of the three kindergarten-aged girls from the classic animated series, hails from Diablo Cody (Juno, United States of Tara), Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars), Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Berlanti Productions.
The Powerpuff Girls used to be America's pint-sized superheroes. Now they're 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?
While you're waiting, why don't you go Powerpuff-yourself?
