Beloved Cartoon Network shows Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends are making a comeback, according to a new report.
Craig McCracken, creator of both series, is set to reboot the shows for Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, per Variety. Details remain scarce, with the entertainment publication writing that the Powerpuff Girls reboot will “revisit and expand upon the world of the original show as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup face off against a variety of villains comprised of familiar foes and new threats.”
Personally, we’re crossing our fingers for the return of HIM, everyone’s favorite androgynous queer-coded villain baddie. Meanwhile, Foster’s will be returning as an original preschool animated series that will bring a new cast of imaginary friends to the screens of Generation Alpha.
The Powerpuff Girls has seen a number of reboots in recent years. There was the 2016 version, which ran for three seasons and ended in 2019. Then there was the CW’s Powerpuff Girls live action remake, which was announced in 2021. The series was set to star Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault as Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. However, as Variety reported back in August, Chloe was forced to leave the show due to scheduling conflicts. Though the pilot was reportedly scrapped for being “too campy,” producers are retooling and giving it another go, although there’s no definitive release timeline as of yet.
There’s no word on when the retooled PPG and Foster’s will air, but we’re already excited.
