CW Retools “Powerpuff,” Picks Up “Naomi”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

The CW has announced that only four new series will be joining its 2021-22 slate with all four previously announced.

Both the spin-off “All American: Homecoming” and Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of the DC Comics title “Naomi” have now been handed series orders and will go ahead, joining the remake of “The 4400” and the competition series “Legends of the Hidden Temple” which previously received series orders.

In a surprise though, the planned live-action sequel to the iconic cartoon “Powerpuff Girls” will be reworked with a whole new pilot to be shot later. The show’s key cast and creators remain attached to the project.

“Nancy Drew” spinoff “Tom Swift” is also reportedly still in contention, but the “Black Lightning” spinoff “Painkiller” and the millennial nuns dramedy “Our Ladies of Brooklyn” have both been passed on and will be shopped elsewhere.
