The Powerpuff Girls has been renewed for a second season.

Cartoon Network has given the green light to the animated series, which was revived in April, 18 years after its initial run spawned 78 episodes and a 2002 feature film.

The series, which earned an Emmy nom this year for best short-form animated program, is set to make its Comic-Con debut this week with a panel and a Townsville-inspired booth in which attendees can print a personalized avatar on a T-shirt or tote bag.

"The Powerpuff Girls is on a momentous run with its first Emmy nod, a debut appearance at one of the biggest fan events of the year and now a second-season greenlight," said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer at Cartoon Network. "Congratulations to the Cartoon Network creative teams who have super-powered this property with the perfect amount of Chemical X to bring a hit show for a new generation of fans." 

The Powerpuff Girls is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, with Nick Jennings (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants) serving as executive producer and Bob Boyle (Clarence, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!) as co-executive producer.

The voice cast includes Amanda Leighton (Blossom), Kristen Li (Bubbles) and Natalie Palamides (Buttercup).

Craig McCracken is the creator.
