Cartoon Network reboot The Powerpuff Girls is gearing up for more crime-fighting action following a second-season commission.

The girl-skewing series premiered in April and has since inspired a raft of products from Spin Master, as well as the popular Powerpuff Yourself avatar maker, which has been used by 12 million fans to date.

The series also picked up its first Emmy nomination this year for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program.

The second-season greenlight comes as The Powerpuff Girls gears up for its inaugural appearance at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con with a dedicated panel and immersive Townsville-inspired booth.

Produced by Cartoon Network Studios with Nick Jennings (Adventure TimeSpongeBob SquarePants) serving as executive producer and Bob Boyle (Clarence, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!) as co-executive producer, The Powerpuff Girls joins an expanding portfolio of returning toons to the net that include Adventure Time, Steven Universe, The Amazing World of Gumball, Clarence, Regular Show, and the recently announced Ben 10 reboot.

The initial run of The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, premiered in 1998 and also spawned a feature film with Warner Bros. Pictures in 2002.
