Cartoon Network has announced that “The Powerpuff Girls” will return with a new series in 2016 that will be licensed across all regions. It is unknown if the series will be in the original’s style or the style of the CGI remake, pictured to the left. Creator Craig McCraken’s potential involvement is yet unknown.

“We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice and Chemical X.” said Chief Content Officer Rob Sorcher.

“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 Vice President of Consumer Products Pete Yoder.

“The Powerpuff Girls” is a 1998 animated series created by Craig McCracken and it centers around a trio of girls created by Professor Utoniom out of sugar, spice, everything nice, and Chemical X. Together the super-powered Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup fight crime and super-villains all the while dealing with typical kid problems.

The series won two Daytime Emmy Awards and spun-off an anime, a Christmas special, a feature film, and a CGI special that aired in January.

    If they DONT’ bring McCraken back then what’s the point? It’ll just be another “Teen Titans go” situation. $50 says it won’t have the subtle satirical elements either.
