‘Powerpuff’ Star Chloe Bennet Withdraws From Series
One of the three stars of the new ‘Powerpuff‘ series, Chloe Bennet, has pulled out of the show.
According to Variety, Bennet was pegged for the role of Blossom in the pilot episode on CW.
The pilot was due to air in the autumn of this year but disappointed CW bosses decided the episode should be re-shot. Scheduling conflicts mean that Bennet is unable to meet the re-shoot dates and she has now exited the show.
‘Powerpuff‘ is a spin-off from the original cartoon series, which sees the iconic female trio grown up and disillusioned by the loss of their childhoods to crime fighting.
Dove Cameron and Yana Perrault remain in the show as Bubbles and Buttercup respectively. Donald Faison, Nicholas Podany and Sara Bellum are also still intended to feature in the series.
Casting for Bennet’s replacement will begin in autumn.
