“The Powerpuff Girls” Is Finally Getting The Gritty Live-action Series You Never Wanted

Sugar, spice, everything nice, and Zoomer ennui will be the recipe for a gritty CW reboot of The Powerpuff Girls, the hit Cartoon Network series from the early 2000s.

Variety announced yesterday that the CW is looking at a live-action reboot of the series which makes the girls 20-somethings. Fans will remember that much of The Powerpuff Girls’ charm lied in the adorableness of the characters as they took on outlandish, comically inept villains like Mojo Jojo and HIM. The central question of this reboot seems to be, “What if instead of being happy and cute, the girls were older and miserable?”

“In the updated version of the series, the titular superheroes are now disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting,” writes Variety.

Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody serve as executive producers. Should it air, the series will join the CW’s pantheon of live-action fantasy dramas aimed at teens and young adults. In addition to its hit Riverdale adaptation, the network also airs Supergirl, The Flash and others.

News of the developing Powerpuff Girls reboot was not met with enthusiasm, as many fans felt a gritty live-action reboot completely missed the point of the original series.

Fans also imagined silly variations on what a “adult-themed” Powerpuff Girls would look like.
