DC Super Hero Girls are making their way to Cartoon Network in 2018, but they're going to look slightly different than what we've seen so far. The characters are getting a redesign by Lauren Faust, who developed My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. She will also stay on to oversee the story of the new series along with executive producer Sam Register.

Warner Bros Animation describes the new series this way:

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.

DC Super Hero Girls was launched in the third quarter of 2015 as a joint endeavor from DC and Mattel. They were created by Shea Fontana, Lisa Yee and Aria Moffly.
