The image follows the behind-the-scenes shots from that leaked earlier this month.

The CW has also released an official synopsis for the show. It reads, "The Powerpuff Girls used to be America's pint-sized superheroes, now they're 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?"

Powerpuff also stars Donald Faison as Powerpuff creator Professor Utonium, Nicholas Podany as the villainous Mojo Jojo, and Robyn Lively as the team's loyal ally Sara Bellum. The show has been developed by writer/producers Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer's Body) and Heather Regnier (Sleepy Hollow). It doesn't have a confirmed premiere date yet.

The Powerpuff Girls was originally created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. It ran for six seasons between 1998 and 2005. There was also a feature-length animated movie released in 2002, and three specials. In 2016, the show was rebooted by Cartoon Network, and to date there have been three seasons.
