Warner Bros. Pulls the Plug on 'The Powerpuff Girls' Series Reboot

It’s a sad day.

The much-anticipated live-action adaptation of The Powerpuff Girls has suffered a major setback. Just two months after The CW’s announcement that the series was being scrapped, Warner Bros. has now officially canceled the project altogether.

According to TVLine, the series has been yanked from development and returned to the studio by The CW due to ownership and strategic changes. Besides, The CW has also sent other projects back to their respective studios, including the proposed Arrowverse spinoff Justice U, the Archie Comics-inspired Jack Chang and the female-led Zorro reboot.

The casting announcements for The Powerpuff Girls series had generated quite the excitement among fans. Chloe Bennet, known for her role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., was set to portray Blossom, while Dove Cameron from Descendants was cast as Bubbles and Broadway actress Yana Perrault was slated to play Buttercup.

The series aimed to explore the lives of the iconic superhero trio as disillusioned young adults who feel resentful for having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Unfortunately, studio setbacks forced The CW to undergo redevelopment and reshoot the pilot after the initial version failed to meet expectations. To make matters worse, Chloe Bennet exited the project in August 2021, causing additional delays.
