As for Perrault’s Buttercup, she will be spending her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.

Regnier, Cody, Kiley, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and David Madden will serve as the executive producers on the series, while Erika Kennair, Berlanti Productions and Vita Vera Films in association with Warner Bros.
