Find out who’s leaving inside…

As you know, a pilot episode was filmed, but The CW decided that that pilot filmed was “just a miss,” and because they believe in the show so much, they ordered the pilot to be reworked.

While that process is still underway, all of the cast has been set to remain in their roles, until now.

Chloe Bennet, who was set to star as Blossom, is no longer attached to the project, tentatively titled Powerpuff.

Variety reveals that “Warner Bros. Television wanted to extend Bennet’s option as they reworked the pilot, but scheduling conflicts forced her to exit instead.”

Casting for her replacement will take place this fall.

Still attached to star are Dove Cameron as Bubbles, Yana Perrault as Buttercup, Donald Faison as Professor Drake Utonium, Nicholas Podany as Joseph “Jojo” Mondel Jr and Robyn Lively as Sara Bellum.
