Powerpuff Girls Live-Action Show Is In Development–Report

The Powerpuff Girls is one of the most beloved animated shows of the 1990s and 2000s. It made a return to screens in 2016 in a new rebooted series, and it has now been reported that a live-action version of the show is on the way.

According to Variety, the new Powerpuff Girls show is in development at The CW. Whereas the animated series focused on a team of very young superhero crimefighters, in the updated live-action version, the Powerpuff Girls will be “disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting,” and who must reunite to help save the world.

The project is being developed by writer/producer Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning writer of movies such as Juno and Jennifer’s Body, and Sleepy Hollow producer Heather Regnier. The show is obviously at an early stage and no further details are available, but it will be interesting to see what Cody and Regnier bring to this iconic property.

The Powerpuff Girls was originally created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. It focused on Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, a trio of kindergarten-aged superheroes who help their hometown of Townsville by fighting criminals and other villains.

The show ran for six seasons between 1998 and 2005. There was also a feature-length animated movie released in 2002, and three specials. In 2016, the show was rebooted by Cartoon Network, and to date there have been three seasons.
