18 years after its first debut, the newest version of “The Powerpuff Girls” has been renewed for a second season by Cartoon Network. The reboot of the acclaimed animated series began in April, garnering an Emmy nomination for Best Short-Form Animated Program. Just a few short months after its first season, THR has word that there’s more sugar spice, and everything nice ahead of the show’s appearance at Comic-Con International: San Diego this week.
“Congratulations to the Cartoon Network creative teams who have super-powered this property with the perfect amount of Chemical X to bring a hit show for a new generation of fans,” said the network’s chief content officer Rob Sorcher in a statement.
Created by Craig McCraken, “The Powerpuff Girls” first debuted in 2002 and immediately generated a devoted fan base, resulting in a 78-episode run as well as a feature film. The rebooted cartoon is executive produced by Nick Jennings (“Adventure Time,” “SpongeBob SquarePants”) with Bob Boyle (“Clarence,” “Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!”) serving as Co-Executive Producer. Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li and Natalie Palamides voice Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup, respectively.
