There’s going to be a fourth Powerpuff Girl and it’s not Bunny

She will be dressed in purple.

The Cartoon Network series The Powerpuff Girls is to return on the 17th September with a fourth member added to the classic trio.

In a new five part story, The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four, the original characters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup will be joined by a new member of the gang, voiced by South African musician Toya Delazy. The fourth Powerpuff Girl will be purple.

Writing on Twitter, Delazy stated โ€œJUST LIKE THAT I BECAME A POWERPUFF GIRL,โ€ calling the achievement โ€œ#lifegoalsโ€.ย 

Jamie Ondarza, Senior Vice President at Turner Broadcasting in Southern Europe and Africa, stated: โ€œToya is definitely a perfect fit as the fourth Powerpuff Girl. ย She is confident, bubbly and quirky, all the values that we are familiar with, love and appreciate. We have a lot of surprises up our sleeves.โ€

The news has been met positively on Twitter.

Some fans have pointed out that there has already been a fourth, purple Powerpuff Girl โ€“ Bunny, who the girls attempted to make themselves, but subsequently exploded.

Last year, Toya Delazy voiced the new South African theme tune for the series re-boot. Powerpuff Girls ambassador Charli XCX helped launch the series in London.ย
