Cartoon Network’s upcoming reboot of The Powerpuff Girls will touch down in 2016, and on Thursday (Jan. 7) at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the network debuted new details and artwork of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.

Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li, Natalie Palamides and Tom Kenny will be providing the voice work, and Nick Jennings and Bob Boyle will be executive producing. No premiere date yet other than 2016.

“It’s all the elements that we brought out last time, but there’s also a contemporary edge to it. It’s just as original as the first time around,” says Jennings.

The cartoon launched in the mid-90s under the care of animator Craig McCracken and aired its final episode in March 2005. The reboot will reportedly be accompanied by a substantial merchandise push. Click here for details and new photos.
