April 4th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Well, The CW’s Powerpuff Girls live-action series has filled all its main cast.

The new series, just called Powerpuff, will see the titular heroines now in their twenties and no longer together as a super-team as they have become disillusioned with the world they saved many times before something happens that forces them to get the band back together and rush into danger.

Well, the Powerpuff Girls will be played by Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault (pictured left) as Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup respectively but no we know that Scrubs star Donald Faison will play Professor Utonium, the scientist who created the Powerpuff Girls and treats them as his daughters, he’s the technical male lead in the series.

I mentioned above that the team reunites to fight a new threat and now  we know what that threat will be… or, rather, who.

Summertime Dropouts star Nicholas Podany will play Joseph ‘Jojo’ Mondel Jr in the series.

In the original animated series he was a child obsessed with the PP Girls and may now have grown up to continue his father’s role as the villain in the original series.

The series has so far gone to pilot. There is currently no word on when the episode will appear but we’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
