The latest light in the DC firmament is set to radiate in the second quarter of next year. That’s right – Stargirl will debut on DC Universe in the spring of 2020. Each episode of the show, starring Brec Bassinger in the title role, will arrive on The CW Network the day after it drops on DC Universe.
New episodes will be released weekly, with the premiere date to be announced later. Stargirl episodes will also be available to view on The CW’s free digital platforms, following their broadcast on The CW Network.
Here’s the show’s official description: “The new DC Universe drama series 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. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.”
Stargirl will co-star Luke Wilson as Courtney's stepdad Pat Dugan (who pilots her 15-foot robot partner STRIPE), as well as Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker, and Hunter Sansone.
