Media outlets are reporting that the DC drama series Stargirl has been renewed for a second season, and while the first season is a DC Universe original, the series moving forward will be become a CW network original.
The series follows High School sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past, as the series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America. The Stargirl comics were 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.
While the first season of Stargirl has been aired on CW the day after it is played on the DC Universe, moving forward the reports state that the Stargirl series will not be available on DC Universe, leaving them with just Titans, Young Justice and Doom Patrol (which is shared with HBO Max) as their remaining exclusive originals. What does this mean for the DC Universe streaming service moving forward? Time will tell but it definitely feels like there’s an expiration date on the service and if Doom Patrol gets renewed but also becomes a HBO Max exclusive, then the writing is officially on the wall for the DCU.
The first season of Stargirl stars Brec Bassinger, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, Joel McHale, Lou Ferrigno Jr, Henry Thomas, Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins, Nelson Lee, Luke Wilson, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Jake Austin Walker, Cameron Gellman, Amy Smart, Neil Jackson, Hunter Sansone, Trae Romano and Hina Khan.
