‘Powerpuff Girls’ CW Pilot Star Chloe Bennet Exits Project (EXCLUSIVE) https://t.co/e7X7SPWbz5— Variety (@Variety) August 11, 2021
According to Variety, Chloe Bennet has stepped down as one of the three leads in the live-action CW pilot based on “The Powerpuff Girls.” Bennet was set to star as Blossom.
The CW made the decision to redevelop and reshoot the pilot earlier this year, with CW chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz calling the first pilot “a miss.”
Warner Bros. Television wanted to extend Bennet’s option as they reworked the pilot, but due to scheduling conflicts she was unable to remain on the show.
Everyone else remains attached to the project, for now.
Casting for a new third Powerpuff Girl will begin in the Fall.
