The Powerpuff Girls is getting a real-life reboot. And yes, many fans seem to be undeniably excited. It's been in the works under CW Television since August 2020, and the show will be completely different from the normal PPG we know and love. That's because it will actually provide a look into the girls as young adults. Now, the trio cast has been officially named, and we have all the information you'll need.
To start off the Powerpuff crew, Dove Cameron will play Bubbles Utonium, the care-free sweetheart that won over many children's hearts. She is still bubbly as a young adult, but her new character allegedly will be more fierce. Cameron earned a Daytime Emmy for her role on Disney Channel's Liv & Maddie in 2018, and since then, she's been eager to grow her career further.
Next up, we have Chloe Bennet as Blossom Utonium, better known by some of the show's fans as "little-miss-perfect." Her adulthood is also slightly different from the 2000's cartoon because her character is allegedly set to deal with anxiety. According to CW, Blossom aims to become a leader again, only now she wants it to be "on her terms." Bennet's casting as Blossom reunites her with Cameron, as they previously worked together on ABC's Marvel drama, Agents of SHIELD.
Finishing off the trio, we have Yana Perrault as Buttercup Utonium, who fans may remember as The Powerpuff Girls' rebel. Allegedly, the reboot will see Buttercup as a divergent soul, trying to break out of her Powerpuff Girl identity to live an anonymous life. Perrault was recently seen in the Alanis Morissette Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill. Before the pandemic, the singer was poised to join the cast of Hamilton, and now it looks like she's kicking off the year with a bang!

It looks like the show is starting to step up its game as more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody were crowned as the scripters for the new series, and Maggie Kiley will be the director of the show. We, for one, are going to sit right at the edge of our seats for this one.
