Cartoon Network rebooting Powerpuff Girls


Powerpuff Girls was a hit series that lasted six seasons and won two Emmys before it was cancelled in 2005. Now Cartoon Network has announced that they plan to bring back Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles in a whole new series set to debut in 2016.

The announcement was made earlier this month along with some other new and returning shows for the network. Heading up the new Powerpuff series is longtime Spongebob Squarepants writer and Adventure Time producer Nick Jennings.

 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.

It has been almost 11 years since the show originally aired, and at the time it was one of the major hit shows the network had. It should be interesting to see a new take on the beloved series.
