POWERPUFF loses Blossom as Chloe Bennet quits struggling CW series ahead of revivals – .


Variety confirms the departure of Chloe Bennet Powerful before the scheduled reruns. A pilot was filmed earlier this year with the intention of starting airing on The CW this fall, but the decision was made to redevelop the show instead (CW CEO Mark Pedowitz called this pilot episode of “missed”).
The script eventually leaked online, and to label the response as very negative would probably be an understatement. While changes are clearly going to be made, it is hard not to wonder if the Agents du SHIELD alum has decided to get off this sinking ship before it’s too late!

The trade notes that, “According to someone with knowledge of the situation, the Warner Bros. Television wanted to expand Bennet’s option as they reworked the pilot, but scheduling conflicts forced her to quit instead. “ Now a new Blossom will be launched from this fall.

Dove Cameron remains attached as Bubbles, while Yana Perrault will return as Buttercup.

Meanwhile, talks are reportedly underway for Donald Faison (Professor Drake Utonium), Nicholas Podany (Mojo Jojo / Joseph “Jojo” Mondel Jr.) and Robyn Lively (Sara Bellum) to return as well.

Powerful was announced last August, and despite those changes, he’s still expected to follow the pint-sized superheroes as disillusioned twenty-year-olds who don’t appreciate losing their childhood because of the fight against crime. Bennet’s departure is definitely a big blow to the series, and it’s unclear what she’s up to. Sadly, it probably won’t be a return as Quake in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
