About The Powerpuff Girls
Flashback: The kindergarten aged sisters, named Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup were created by their scientist father, Professor Utonium when he mixed sugar, spice and everything nice with mysterious chemical X. The sisters resided in the fictitious USA city, named Townsville. For their flawless magical powers, the triad was often called by city’s mayor to fight evils and criminals like mojo-jojo.
The six-season animated series was originally created by McCracken and aired from Cartoon Network, from 1998-2005. Additionally, a rebooted version of the series was also premiered on the same channel from 2016-2019.
Nevertheless, The Powerpuff Girls forthcoming series contain bundles of surprises for Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup fans as this time; it’s going to be dark and gritty. The threesome has now grown into some ‘disillusioned twenties something’ and they are aggrieved over losing their childhood to fighting monsters.
The adult version of The Powerpuff Girls has been scripted and executively produced by Diablo Cody of Juno’s fame and Heather Regnier who wrote the famous veronica mars. Moreover, the masterminds behind chilling adventures of Sabrina, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are also part of this massive project.
Furthermore, the details about casting and release date are not yet confirmed, as the series is still in development.
The announcement of this new version gained mixed responses from the audience, as our most favorite cartoon characters will no longer be sweet, lighthearted heroes and depict their shadowy sides instead.
