ORIGINAL STORY (February 10, 2021): Following the announcement that a live-action reboot of Cartoon Network‘s The Powerpuff Girls was confirmed last year, The CW has now given the green light on the project as well as two other new pilot including Ava DuVernay‘s new superhero show Naomi and Jenny Snyder Urman’s untitled milennial nun dramedy.
The live-action rendition of the popular cartoon series is based on Craig McCracken’s characters, and will feature the superheroes in their twenties, resenting the fact that they’ve lost their childhoods to fighting crime. There’s yet no information as to who will be taking on the roles of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, but Warner Bros. Television is set to produce the show together with Berlanti Productions.
As for Ava DuVernay’s DC superhero series dubbed Naomi, the show has been in development since its announcement in December 2020 and follows the story of a teenage girl who investigates the supernatural events that are affecting her hometown, and finding their origins. Arrow writer Jill Blankenship is heading up the series together with DuVernay, with Warner Bros. Television producing the show.
There’s yet no information as to when we can be expecting the new projects to be released, but keep your eyes peeled as any more information surfaces.
