Fresh off the success of the re-imagine TV special, the iconic trio of super-powered young women, The Powerpuff Girls, will be making their return to TV screens via an all-new rebooted TV series produced by Cartoon Network Studios. Additionally, the relaunch of the franchise will be supported by a full licensing program that will roll out across all regions. The rebooted TV series is scheduled for a 2016 launch, according to Cartoon Network CCO Rob Sorcher.
“The original Powerpuff Girls was a franchise phenomenon for Cartoon Network, paving the way for a new generation of innovative storytellers and enthusiastic fans worldwide,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer, Cartoon Network. “We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X.”
“As the original ambassador of ‘girl power,’ The Powerpuff Girls brand continues to resonate with people of all ages and there is tremendous excitement around introducing Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup to a new generation,” said Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products for North America, Cartoon Network Enterprises. “With proven success and great content plans in place, there’s so much potential that we’re looking forward to explore with our licensing partners in the coming weeks.”
