Entertainment Weekly reported that Cartoon Network is set to introduce the newest member of Powerpuff Girls. The new girl in Townsville is still unnamed, but she is obviously joining the team of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup.

The new member of the group will be unveiled during the premiere episode of “The Powerful Girls: Power Of Four,” which is a five-part movie program. The show will air on September 17 at 5:30 p.m. ET.

The original trio who call themselves as the Powerpuff Girls – Bubble, Blossom, and Buttercup – is always introduced at the beginning of the show as three girls born out of “sugar, spice and everything nice.” A scientist named Professor Utonium created the girls and stood as their father.

The animated show is not open-ended in nature but done in segments where the girls fight a new villain in each of the episodes. The story is set in a fictitious city called Townsville, with the characters of the Mayor, the Secretary, the school teacher and appearances from Bubble’s favorite octopus stuffed toy.

Fourth Powerpuff girl

The fourth Powerpuff girl will be unveiled on air, but her silhouette has been revealed in the photos posted online. Entertainment Weekly shared the photo, which showed her silhouette with a huge, wide hairstyle.

The trio of these scientifically-created girls each represents a color, which is reflected on their costumes – blue, pink and green. Details about the color of the new member of the superhero team have not been officially released yet.

But surely she will provide more help as the heroines fight evil in their hometown.

Fans react

Digital Spy reported that fans are not happy about the fourth member. They pointed out that there was actually a fourth sister introduced during the show’s previous episodes.

Her name is Bunny, who made appearances during the episode titled “Twisted Sister.”

Rumors are saying that the new Powerpuff girl will come from the Black race, according to Digital Spy. This made fans curious and excited about the upcoming return of the popular animated series. As to whether the “black color” pertained to skin color or costume color, there are no official details from Cartoon Network.

The animated series started in 1998 and officially ended in 2005. Last year, it returned with a brand new series but there were new actresses who voiced the main characters of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup. Despite the graphics quality of its animation that is based on the classic two-dimensional style, it is still loved by fans even until today
