Hollywood loves to resurrect old fan favorites and cartoons aren’t any different. The Cartoon Network has announced their plans to bring back the fighting trio, aka Powerpuff Girls, with a 2016 premiere date already in mind. Rob Sorcher of Cartoon Network revealed the news.

“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. 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, the vice president of consumer products for North America of 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 ‘Powerpuff Girls’ first debuted in 1998 from creator Craig McCracken. The animated series follows the “three sugar-coated superheroes” who are regular girls when it comes to going to school and winning at hopscotch. They only exception, they also fight crime.
