Stargirl Season 2 Moves From DC Universe to The CW

Stargirl

The network announced the news this morning (July 5) and also revealed that with the renewal, Stargirl becomes an official CW series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The CW has chose to renew Geoff John's latest DC superhero series Stargirl for a second season.

Since then, Stargirl has averaged almost a million weekly viewers on The CW, in addition to however many were catching it on DC Universe.

STARGIRL is the latest show to move to The CW after the network acquired the rights to SWAMP THING, which had been unceremoniously canceled shortly after the launch of its first season.

The move raises a lot of questions about the futures of both Stargirl and the DC Universe app. With the second season of the series, though, the DC Universe release will be no more, and production will be overseen entirely by The CW.


Regarding the DC Universe streaming service, recently saw the news that Doom Patrol Season 2 will air on HBO Max - so that only now leaves Titans, and the Harley Quinn and Young Justice animated shows on DC Universe. Like the latter show, which started off as a CBS series before migrating to the CW, Stargirl will likely take advantage of the neat multiverse structure that the CW superhero series are packaged in, and take place in an alternate dimension from the other shows. DC Universe has one exclusive original series, Titans; Doom Patrol is now shared with HBO Max. And what do you think will become of DC Universe?

Geoff Johns created the comic book series and serves as co-showrunner and executive producer along with Melissa Carter. Episodes can also be found on the network's ad-supported streaming platforms. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Greg Beeman executive produce as well. Stargirl now debuts new episodes on DC Universe on Mondays.

Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Jake Austin Walker, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, and Christopher James Baker co-star.

"'DC's Stargirl' follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (series star Brec Bassinger, "Bella and the Bulldogs", "School of Rock", "The Goldbergs") as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past". The show chronicles the rise of Stargirl as well as the establishment of DC's first superhero team, the Justice Society of America.
