‘Powerpuff Girls’ Reboot Coming in 2016

Cartoon Network is reviving The Powerpuff Girls as a regular series, the network announced on Monday during the 2014 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.

No word yet on whether the show’s creator Craig McCracken will be involved in the new series, or whether it will be made in CG like the Powerpuff Girls special Dance Pantsed, which debuted earlier this year on Cartoon Network.

But the network is excited about letting people know that the relaunch will be accompanied by a “full licensing program.” “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,” says Pete Yoder, vice president of consumer products for North America, Cartoon Network Enterprises. The show is one of the network’s top performing brands, with more than $2.5 billion in retail sales over the last 16 years, much of it in the fashion and apparel sectors.
