Faison will play Professor Drake Utonium - the scientific genius who created the Powerpuff Girls in his lab.

However, a lot has changed over the years, and according to Deadline, the girls are now, 'disillusioned twentysomethings.'

They find themselves resenting the fact that they, 'lost their childhood to crime fighting.'

Meanwhile, the professor is, 'staring down a midlife crisis.'

He sets off on a mission to repair his damaged relationship with Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup.

'Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?'
