Wonder Woman/Diana, Supergirl/Kara and Batgirl/Barbara next will grapple with high school life (as well as fight some crime!) on Cartoon Network, as the DC Super Hero Girls online shorts get reimagined as a full-on animated action-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation.
Featuring “fresh character designs” and storytelling from Emmy-winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic), DC Super Hero Girls is set to land on Cartoon Network in 2018.
DC Super Hero Girls previously existed as an online series and a trio of TV/straight-to-video features, one of which aired on Cartoon Network and Boomerang.
In the upcoming series, as described by Warner Bros. Animation:
The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.
Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, and their bros in the Justice League amp up the fun whether they’re at a concert or taking down a crime ring. But what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can’t agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all their friends, foes and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you’re a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time.
Will you and your rugrats be tuning in for this latest bit of DC Comics goodness?
