The live-action Powerpuff Girls pilot at The CW has found its three leads, with Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault all joining the show.

The Powerpuff Girls live-action series was first announced as being in development back in August.

Based on the Cartoon Network series created by Craig McCracken, the new series sees the pint-sized superheroes as disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?

Bennet has been cast as Blossom, Cameron has been cast as Bubbles, and Perrault has been cast as Buttercup.

The pilot reunites Bennet and Camerson, though this time they will play allies instead of enemies.

Both previously appeared in the ABC-Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, in which Bennet's character and Cameron's fought against each other.

Blossom – though she was a spunky, conscientious, Little-Miss-Perfect child who holds several advanced degrees – has repressed kiddie-superhero trauma has left her feeling anxious and reclusive, and she aims to become a leader again, this time on her own terms.

Bennet is best known for her role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, on which she starred as Daisy "Skye" Johnson, a.k.a Quake, throughout the show's seven-season run.

Her other notable roles include the ABC music drama Nashville and the animated Dreamworks film Abominable.

Bubbles' sweet-girl disposition won America's hearts as a child. She still sparkles as an adult, but her charming exterior belies an unexpected toughness and wit.

She's initially more interested inrecapturing her fame than saving the world, but she just might surprise us and herself.

Cameron broke out as the star of the Disney Channel series Liv and Maddie, on which she played both of the title roles. The show earned her a Daytime Emmy Award in 2018.

She is also known for playing Mal in the Descendants franchise at Disney.

Buttercup was the rebellious badass of The Powerpuff Girls in its heyday. More sensitive than her tough exterior suggests, Buttercup has spent her adulthood trying to shed her Powerpuff Girl identity and live an anonymous life.

Perrault was most recently seen on Broadway in the Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill. She was also set to join the cast of Hamilton on Broadway before the pandemic shutdown live theater.

She is known for performing and producing her own original music. Should the pilot go to series, it would mark Perrault's onscreen debut.
