BURBANK, CA -- Production has begun on DC Super Hero Girls, an all-new animated action-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC Entertainment. Featuring fresh character designs and storytelling from Emmy Award–winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends), DC Super Hero Girls will come to Cartoon Network in 2018.

The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from the sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. The chaos of managing school, friends and family is tough enough, but add super-powers and a secret identity into the mix, and things can get way more complicated.

Gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, 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, the squad of super teens will navigate these unique growing pains.

The new series is part of a global initiative from Cartoon Network and builds on the successful DC Super Hero Girls direct-to-video movies and digital webisodes launched in 2015, which racked up millions of views on the DC Super Hero Girls YouTube channel and mobile app.

Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action) serves as executive producer.
