Cartoon Network Sets DC Super Hero Girls Series For 2018
DC Super Hero Girls is getting an upgrade. The show has had a slew of direct-to-DVD movies as well as some digital “webisodes” that began on Youtube in 2015 but now Warner Brothers is partnering with Turner/Cartoon Network to bring the animated hit to television.
Featuring Kara as Supergirl, Diana as Wonder Woman, and Barbara as Batgirl the show will follow their exploits through school and the vigilante life.
My Little Pony and Powerpuff Girls producer Lauren Faust will serve as producer with Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Action‘s Sam Register set to be Executive Producer for the series.
Warner Brothers Animation’s Official Series Description:
“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.”
