The Powerpuff Girls is the latest cartoon to get the live-action treatment.

According to Variety, a reboot of the Cartoon Network classic in the works at The CW.

In the original Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, we saw Professor Utonium accidentally create the elementary school aged super trio of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup by combining sugar, spice, and everything nice (with a dash of the mysterious Chemical X).

In the new series, the girls are now young women, who harbour resentment over the fact that they lost their childhood to a life of fighting crime. Now that the world needs them more than ever, will they pick up their capes again and reunite?

Powerpuff Girls ran for six seasons and 78 episodes between 1998 and 2005; a rebooted animated series began airing on Cartoon Network in 2016.
