The live-action adaptation of the Powerpuff Girls that was set to be coming to the CW will not be arriving just yet. The CW announced that the series is getting “reworked and redeveloped off-cycle,” which means it will not make it in time for this fall’s new cycle.

TV Line reports that the series’ four stars, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Chloe Bennet (Blossom), DescendantsDove Cameron (Bubbles), Broadway vet Yana Perrault (Buttercup), and ScrubsDonald Faison (Professor Utonium), as well as other cast, and the writers/producers will all remain involved in the project.

The show is based on the original Cartoon Network animated series and characters created by Craig McCracken. Heather Regnier (Veronica Mars) and Diablo Cody (Juno) have written the script for the pilot, with Maggie Kiley set to direct.

The series is set to follow Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, “who used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes but now are 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?”

The report goes on to say that the network is not proceeding with either its Black Lightning spinoff Painkiller, or its dramedy Our Ladies of Brooklyn, from Jane the Virgin boss Jennie Snyder Urman.
