This is important news to us cuz we grew up with these tough little bitches, a word we’re using in – we swear! – the absolutely best, most positive sense it can have. The original show was awesome, and we’re counting on this to be even better.
Here’s what its P.R. team has to say:
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.
What’s that? You’re wondering about the writing? Oh, well, erm, uh…hey, look, it’s the Powerpuff Girls! At Cartoon Network! With a producer who runs the hell out of ADVENTURE TIME. Nothing to worry about here, right?
