Live-Action Powerpuff Girls Series Possibly Coming From The CW

As a home for strange genre shows that appeal to teenagers, the CW has no parallel. The next offering they plan to bring to the air is the reimagining of a beloved property. A live-action Powerpuff  will be coming soon from the CW. It’s a reimagining of the classic cartoon series, and in some ways a spiritual sequel to it. The Powerpuff Girls themselves will be older, in their 20s, and resent their place in life. The short synopsis offered suggests that they will resent the accident that gave them superpowers. In fact, it sounds as if they are traumatized, or at least angry, about spending their youth fighting supervillains. Naturally, a new threat that only Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup can stop, and they will have to decide whether or not to reunite.

The Powerpuff Girls ran for six seasons on the Cartoon Network, starting in 1998. A few years before the show’s run ended in 2005, they also released the feature-length The Powerpuff Girls Movie. The film didn’t exactly shatter records or anything, earning $16.4 million at the box office. The series earned itself a reboot in 2016, which actually produced more episodes in its three seasons than the original series did over six. They also aired some shorts and specials. However, that series ceased production in 2019.

Thus, it seems the future of the Powerpuff Girls franchise is in live-action with the new series on the CW. Many fans of the original series would be much older now, and the surely heavy teen-drama nature of all CW series will bring in new fans.

However, the CW has not yet ordered it to series, but sounds like they are at least committed to pilot once things start filming again.

What do you think about the plans for a live-action Powerpuff Girls series on the CW? Do you like the update or think they should leave well-enough alone?
