The Powerpuff Girls, Foster’s rebooted for Cartoon Network, HBO Max

Animated series The Powerpuff Girls

Warner Bros Discovery-owned Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is rebooting kids’ shows The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends for Cartoon Network and HBO Max.

Creator, producer and director Craig McCracken, who first began his career at Hanna-Barbera Cartoons in 1992 and created both series, is attached to develop both projects.

The Powerpuff Girls reboot revisits and expands upon the world of the original series as the female superheroes face off against a gallery of villains comprised of familiar foes and new threats. The original series debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998 and ran for 78 episodes.

Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends will return as an original preschool animated series welcoming a new cast of preschool-aged imaginary friends. The original series, which premiered in 2004, ran for six seasons on Cartoon Network.

The classic Hanna-Barbera name was revived in 2021 when Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe joined then WarnerMedia’s collective of animation studios that includes Warner Bros Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS) in the US. The new outfit replaced CNS Europe.
