The Powerpuff Girls are back, but not in the way you expected.

The Powerpuff Girls are set to return to our screens as a new live-action series remake is currently on the cards.

However, instead of the adorable cartoon versions of Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles we knew and loved as kids, this live-action remake will see the famous trio struggling with their superpowers later in life.

According to Variety, the new live-action remake will see the girls as 'disillusioned twentysomethings' who 'resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting'.

The Powerpuff Girls was originally a Cartoon Network series, which first aired in 1998, but is now being developed by The CW.

Heather Regnier and Diablo Cody will be writing the new series, while Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden will executive produce the new project.

As far as cast goes, there's no news yet on who will be playing the famous three, but we're sure fans already have their theories.

With the original series lasting six seasons and becoming very popular, it's no surprise it was developed into a film in 2002.

The Powerpuff Girls Movie was still animated, which means the new series will be the first time fans will see Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles as real-life people.
