They led the hit Cartoon Network series for six seasons and even starred in their own animated film.

But the Powerpuff Girls have finally returned after more than 15 years away in a new live-action incarnation, retitled Powerpuff, starring Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet and Yana Perrault.

The actresses were spotted on Wednesday in their candy-colored dresses filming a scene for the pilot of The CW’s live-action reboot with their costars Donald Faison and Robyn Lively in Atlanta.

New look: Powerpuff Girls stars (L-R) Dove Cameron, 25, Yana Perrault, 25, and Chloe Bennet, 28, were spotted filming a scene from their live-action continuation in Atlanta on Wednesday

Cameron, 25, Bennet, 28, and Perrault, 25, starred, respectively, as Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup, and their dress and hair colors matched the original cartoon characters’ design.

All three wore sleeveless mini dresses cinched around their waists with black belts, along with knee-high white socks. 

Cameron has her long blond hair styled into two pigtails, while Bennet wore her long red-dyed locks with a scarlet bow and Perrault had her raven tresses styled in tight curls.

Both Cameron and Bennet wore the Powerpuff Girls’ traditional rounded black shoes, but Perrault’s Buttercup had on a more low-key pair of black Converse high top sneakers.

The three looked as if they were about to charge into battle for an action sequence.

Cameron and Perrault seemed to be having a playful chat off on the sidelines as they laughed and grinned ear-to-ear.

Perrault, who is best known for starring in the musical Jagged Little Pill, inspired by the classic Alanis Morissette album of the same name, flashed a peace sign in the air and smiled for cameras on set.

Meanwhile, masked crew members were working on setting up equipment.

Cameron was seen puckering her lips up as if for a kiss while chatting with her costar.

Bennet also had some down time when she wasn’t up on the wires, and she was spotted taking a phone call and enjoying an iced coffee while relaxing on the lawn.

So far, the cast are filming the pilot in hopes that the reboot will be ordered to series based on it.

The live-action Powerpuff Girls will take a somewhat darker, more jaded view of the characters, who are now in their 20s and bitter about having spent their childhoods fighting crime. 

According to Deadline, Bennet’s Blossom used to be the perfect child among the girls, but now she’s filled with anxiety and reclusive, even as she struggles to lead the group again.

Cameron’s Bubbles was precocious as a child, which leads her to want to reunite simply for the publicity, though she comes to appreciate fighting crime solely for the merits.

Perrault’s Buttercup was initially the toughest of the trio, though she has trouble coming back to a life of crime fighting after trying to lose her old persona and live an anonymous life.
