The upcoming ‘Stargirl” TV show will air on both DC Universe and The CW, Stargirl.TV has learned. According to Variety, ‘Stargirl’ episodes will drop weekly, with them airing on DC Universe first and then on The CW the day after. After it has publicly been broadcasted on The CW, it will be available on the online CW streaming service. Business Insider has learned that the Stargirl character will debut on The CW’s ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’ event.
This wouldn’t be the first time that a DC Universe show will air on another network or streaming service, with Titans being internationally available on Netflix. Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing are also available on HBO (Max) and Amazon Prime respectively.
‘Stargirl’ follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. It also stars Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker, and Hunter Sansone.
Geoff Johns and Melissa Carter serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions also executive produce. It is based on the characters from DC created by Johns. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. ‘Stargirl’ is expected to premiere in spring 2020.
UPDATE: DC Universe’s Stargirl will be the Post-Crisis version of Stargirl in the CW multiverse, replacing the ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Stargirl played by Sarah Gray.
