DC's Super Hero Girls, the wildly popular animated series based on DC Comics' biggest heroines, is getting a fresh look and a brand-new network. The show, which follows the adventures of Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Supergirl, along with a slew of their fellow heroes, will be coming to Cartoon Network in 2018.

Emmy Award–winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) has boarded the project, which will be executive-produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action). This new series will feature updated character designs and brand-new stories.

DC's Super Hero Girls began as a series of webisodes on YouTube back in 2015 and has since spawned a mobile app and direct-to-video movies, as well as a massive line of merchandise and its own comic book.

The new series will build on the original webisodes and movies and will feature several additional characters from DC's line-up, including Bumblebee, Zatanna, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, Katana and Harley Quinn. The previous series also included Super Hero Girls versions of Poison Ivy, Killer Frost, Hawkgirl, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cheetah, Star Sapphire, Catwoman and Green Lantern Hal Jordan. No word on which, if any, of these additional characters will appear in the new show.
