The childhood superheroes we all know and love have grown up. CW’s live-action series Powerpuff revolves around the Powerpuff Girls – Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup – as they navigate their adult life after spending years fighting crime.

CW released the official logline for series: “The Powerpuff Girls used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes, now they’re disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime-fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever? Based on the original Cartoon Network animated series and characters created by Craig McCracken.”

SEA Wave - Powerpuff GirlsChloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault star as the now-older Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup respectively, with CW releasing character descriptions for each of them.

“Blossom: Though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees, Blossom’s repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive, and she aims to become a leader again—this time on her own terms.”

Bubbles: Bubbles’ sweet-girl disposition won America’s hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit. She’s initially more interested in recapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.”

Buttercup: Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.”

The series will also feature Donald Faison as Professor Drake Utonium, Nicholas Podany as Jojo Mondel or “Mojo Jojo” and Robyn Lively as Sara Bellum. Tom Kenny will also return from the animated series to reprise his role as the narrator.

Written by Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody and directed by Maggie Kiley, with all three of them also acting as executive producers, the series is bound to be completely different from the Powerpuff Girls we knew, showing how life and adulthood can change a person in many ways. The show’s other executive producers include Greg Berlanti, David Madden, and Sarah Schechter, and producers are Erika Kennair, Berlanti Productions, and Vita Vera films in association with Warner Bros. Television.
