The CW has long been the home of DC’s many superheroes, but the network could soon be getting a new band of super-powered characters. The Powerpuff Girls, which ran on Cartoon Network from 1998 and 2005 and then from 2016 to 2019, may be getting a live-action version of the cartoon that would tell the continued adventures of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.
In February, three CW pilots were announced to be in development. These were another DC Comics adaptation titled Naomi, and a comedy-drama about millennial nuns, plus this live-action Powerpuff Girls reboot.
The network followed this news with the release of a synopsis for the proposed show. The reimagining of the superhero animation will see the central trio as “disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting.” The logline then asks, “will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?”
Behind this live-action remake is Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter who is currently writing a Madonna biopic. The Powerpuff Girls will see her working with Heather Regnier, previously of Veronica Mars and Sleepy Hollow.
