DC’s “Stargirl” has been renewed at The CW for season 2. The CW will now become the exclusive in-season home to the series next season, with episodes airing on the CW network and streaming the next day on the CW’s free, ad-supported streaming platforms. Season 2 will not stream on the show’s original home at DC Universe.
This will make DC’s Stargirl which started as a DC Universe original, a CW series. The first season of the series was commissioned by the DC Universe digital subscription service. The show has done well for the CW and its platform with solid viewership. It is now halfway through its first season.
Going forward, DC’s Stargirl will not be available on DC Universe. The service’s original slate has been dwindling as it has been focusing on its core business of DC comic book and news content for fans. DC Universe has one exclusive original series, Titans; Doom Patrol is now shared with HBO Max.
“Stargirl” was the first DCU show to find a home on CW but not the last. Earlier, the CW revealed it had acquired the broadcast rights to the DCU show “Swamp Thing,” which was canceled at the DCU shortly after the premiere of the first season.
DC’S “Stargirl” follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) as she moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska after her mother remarries Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson). There, she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The series focuses on the character that started creator Geoff Johns career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister who was killed in a 1996 plane crash.
The series stars Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker and Christopher James Baker.
Johns executive produces with Melissa Carter, who serves as co-showrunner, as well as Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Greg Beeman. DC’s Stargirl is produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros. TV.
