New DC Super Hero Girls Animated Series To Air On Cartoon Network In 2018.

Warner Bros. Animation have revealed that their new DC Super Hero Girls animated series is scheduled to debut on Cartoon Network in 2018.

Production on the new animated series is underway with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic's Lauren Faust in charge of redesigning the characters and overseeing the story. Warner Bros. Animation chief Sam Register (Teen Titans GO! and Justice League Action) will serve as the anime cartoon's executive produced.

The new series builds on the DC Super Hero Girls direct-to-video movies as well as digital webisodes launched in 2015 on YouTube after DC, Mattel, and Warner Bros. came togetther to create a line of action figures featuring some of DC’s iconic female heroes and villains.

In May 2016, DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson revealed that DC Super Hero Girls reportedly generated over $1 billion in profit for the company.

Here's how Warner Bros. Animation describes the series:

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.
