That’s right, The Powerpuff Girls will be returning to Cartoon Network sometime next year. The show will be executive produced by Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) with Bob Boyle (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!set to co-executive produce.

“It has been wonderful to see this new show team bring such passion and positive creative spirit to this iconic property,” said Chief Content Officer, Rob Sorcher. “We know that fans of every age will appreciate this new take on saving the world before bedtime.”

The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular original series. Created by Craig McCracken, the series premiered in 1996 and earned two Emmy Awards along with five nominations and numerous animation honors throughout its 78-episode run. The series also spawned a feature film with Warner Bros. Pictures in 2002. (ComicBook.com)

Cartoon Network released the new character designs on Tuesday, June 9th, in addition to images of the new cast:

No, you’re not crazy, the new designs look suspiciously similar to the old designs, but that’s not a complaint. It would have been really lame if they’d tried to update the show’s look to be more contemporary or hip.

Considering the talented folks involved behind the scenes, we couldn’t be more excited for this revival. Check out the full gallery of images as well as brief Vine videos of the three new cast members portraying Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup over at ComicBook.com.
