Another Day
In August 2020, the CW’s live-action adaptation of “Powerpuff Girls” started filming with Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault as Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, respectively. However, the project had to start all over when backlash arose over the costumes and some leaked script pages on Twitter, and then Bennet dropped out.
While fans have been wondering if the series is dead, a recent TVLine report gave an update on its status. It said, "I am assured that The CW's live-action adaptation of the “Powerpuff Girls,” after coming in last spring 'too campy' (and which definitely no longer costars Chloe Bennet), is still in some stage of redevelopment."
While this report isn't backed up by an actual statement from the CW and doesn't indicate when we can expect an update, much less a release date, the fact that the network isn't giving up on the series is encouraging. Updating the iconic trio of heroes is way past due, giving a new generation the confidence to use their sugar, spice, and everything nice to work together and save the world.
