Deadline is reporting that Meg DeLacy and Jake Austin Walker are the latest names to join the cast for DC Universe series Stargirl.
Stargirl was created by Geoff Johns back in 1999, known as Courtney Whitmore, who receives her powers by wielding Starman’s Cosmic staff and wears the Cosmic Converter Belt which gives her agility and enhanced reflexes. The character has appeared in animated series such as Justice League Unlimited and appeared in live-action form in the final seasons of Smallville and also during the second season of CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, portrayed by Sarah Grey. The television series version sees high school student Whitmore band together with the Justice Society of America to fight villains, past and present.
Meg DeLacy (whose credits include The Fosters and Last Night) will be playing the role of Cindy Burman, Blue Valley High’s most popular student… and its most feared. Secretly the daughter of Dragon King, a longtime enemy of the Justice Society of America, Cindy is determined to follow in her father’s footsteps. Meanwhile the report states that Jake Austin Walker’s (whose credits include Rectify and Fear The Walking Dead) is being kept under wraps.
The Stargirl series has been ordered for a thirteen-episode season, aiming for a 2019 premiere release date and will be produced by Warner Bros. TV, Geoff Johns’ Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.
The duo will join a cast that includes Brec Bassinger, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, Joel McHale, Lou Ferrigno Jr, Henry Thomas, Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins, Nelson Lee, Luke Wilson and Anjelika Washington.
