A Live-Action 'Powerpuff Girls' Reboot Is Coming

Kids growing up in the '90s will have fond memories of watching The Powerpuff Girls - the bulb-headed pint-sized superheroes - on Cartoon Network, quickly deciding whether you were more a Blossom, Bubbles or Buttercup.

Now, the crime fighting trio are set to fly once more as a live-action reboot is being planned by Warner Bros for US network The CW.

The original series - which ran from 1998 to 2005 - followed the kindergarten-age superheroes as they sought to protect their home of Townsville from evil forces and monsters.

The reboot will revise the girls as "disillusioned twenty-somethings" who resent having lost their childhood to fighting crime.

Blossom, Bubbles or Buttercup are intent on leading normal lives, but will they reunite for one last job when the world needs them most?

Currently without a release date, the show will be written by Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars) and Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer's Body) and produced by executive produced by Greg Berlanti, who is known for his work on Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

With the new live-action format there's sure to be news on who will take the iconic roles of the strawberry blonde-haired leader Blossom, the soft and sweet Bubbles and hotheaded tomboy Buttercup, soon.

Fans have also been speculating how Warner Bros plan to tackle the girls' arch nemesis, mutant monkey Mojo, in live-action.

The original Powerpuff Girls was produced by Craig McCracken. In the series, the girls are created by father and scientist Professor Utonium who is combining the ingredients for the "perfect little girl" when accidentally adds Chemical X.

The result is the creation of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, a trio of young superheroes with superpowers including flight, super strength, superhuman speed, x-ray vision, superhuman senses, red heat vision, invisibility and more.
