New Series of The Powerpuff Girls Coming Next Year
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
It is literally the news we have all been waiting for, ok maybe not, but this is still pretty awesome none the less. The Powerpuff Girls are set to make a comeback in 2016 with the launch of a brand new season, yay! I may be turning 30 this year, but I simply can’t deny that this was one of the best shows on Cartoon Network when I was younger, and with kids of my own these days I’ve a perfect excuse to sit them next to me and watch this 1998 classic series make a comeback.
“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.”
The new series will return to Cartoon Network next year and has a full licensing program that means it’ll roll out across all regions.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this is awesome?
