Fans of the 90s/00s Cartoon Network show The Powerpuff Girls, there’s some news for you.
According to reports, there’s a fourth PPG being added to the mix, and the voice actor for the latest character is Toya Delazy, a black woman.
“AND JUST LIKE THAT, I BECAME A POWERPUFF GIRL,” wrote Delazy, a singer and performer hailing from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, on her Twitter. “Much love to my @cartoonnetwork for trusting me with this epic job.”

The network hasn’t confirmed if the unnamed fourth Powerpuff girl will also be black. However, Twitter user @trustnorminah posted a presumed still from the upcoming PPG movie (The Powerpuff Girls: Power of Four) showing Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup giggling with their possible new addition.
