Sugar, spice, and everything nice, the Powerpuff Girls live-action revival is moving forward a The CW.
The CW has moved to the pilot stage on a Powerpuff Girls sequel series. The series was originally announced as being in development in Aug. 2020, and is from from producer Greg Berlanti. Diablo Cody (Juno), Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars), and Warner Bros. TV.
The series will pick up with Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles in their early 20s and dealing with the fact they spent their childhoods fighting crime.
In all, three pilots were ordered this week from The CW including Powerpuff Girls, the DC project Naomi from Ava DuVernay, and an untitled religious dramedy from Claire Rothrock and Ryann Weir. Additionally, a reboot of The 4400 was ordered straight to series.
No word yet on casting for the new series.
As with all pilots, this means that one episode will be filmed and then sent to the network for a final decision. Should it meet with their approval it will then move on to a formal order for additional episodes and be placed on the schedule. If the pilot does not meet with approval, then it can either be sent back to be reworked, or the project will just be terminated.
With Greg Berlanti’s track record with The CW, and a name such as Diablo Cody attached, it seems fairly likely this will move to series.
