The Powerpuff Girls are coming back to television in 2016

Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are back. The Powerpuff Girls will return to the small screen in 2016, with new episodes airing on the Cartoon Network.

"The original Powerpuff Girls was a franchise phenomenon for Cartoon Network, paving the way for a new generation of innovative storytellers and enthusiastic fans worldwide," Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network, told Variety. "We are calling these girls back into action based upon an overwhelming demand for sugar, spice, and Chemical X."

The Powerpuff Girls premiered in 1998, and won two Emmys during its 78-episode run.
