POWERPUFF Series Still In Development At The CW Despite Losing AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Alum Chloe Bennet

The CW decided to go back to the drawing board with its live-action Powerpuff show, and while many fans had assumed the project might be dead, a new report suggests the network remains hard at work on it.

There was a lot of excitement surrounding the live-action Powerpuff project coming to The CW, but the pilot failed to deliver what the network wanted and plans were put in place to go back to the drawing board. It's been a while since we've heard anything about the series, and with the network's future in doubt due to new ownership, fans have wondered if the show has fallen by the wayside.

Well, according to TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich (via Toonado.com), "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."

As noted, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum Chloe Bennet was set to play Blossom, but reported "scheduling conflicts" led to her departure from the project. While it had been said that the hunt for an actor to take over the role would begin last fall, we've heard nothing since Bennet left the show in August. Needless to say, that doesn't bode well for an adaptation that's clearly troubled.

As of right now, Dove Cameron remains attached to play Bubbles, while Yana Perrault is on board as Buttercup. Previously, the cast included Donald Faison as Professor Drake Utonium, Nicholas Podany as Jojo Mondel, and Robyn Lively as Sara Bellum, with Tom Kenny set to narrate. We don't know if they'll all be back, though Faison will have time after Legends of Tomorrow's cancellation.

Based on Powerpuff's leaked script, there were tonnes of issues with this take on the iconic Cartoon Network hit. The property does have live-action potential, though, so fingers crossed it works out.
