Sugar, Spice, & a 2016 Renewal!
Cartoon Network announced their programming plans for 2016. On the list surprisingly is The Powerpuff Girls, which ran a good seven seasons from 1998-2005. Here’s the official press statement below.
“The Powerpuff Girls: 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.”
We remember last year’s Powerpuff Girls special and even though it had a good story, it just couldn’t feed our need for more. Also, with Nick Jennings as a producer, we’ll see where this series will go without original Powerpuff Girl creator, Craig McCracken, not at the helm.
Something to preview during San Diego Comic Con later perhaps? We won’t be surprised if it will.
The Powerpuff Girls is stated for release in 2016.
