Two new cast members have joined the ensemble for ‘Stargirl,’ the upcoming series on DC Universe. Meg DeLacy will play the character Cindy Burman, while Jake Austin Walker has an undisclosed role.
Credits for DeLacy include the series ‘Zac and Mia’ and ‘The Fosters.’ Walker was in the shows ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and ‘Rectify.’
The character description of DeLacy’s role:
“Cindy Burman is a second-generation menace. She is Blue Valley High’s most popular student… and its most feared. Secretly the daughter of Dragon King (played by Nelson Lee), a longtime enemy of the Justice Society of America, Cindy is determined to follow in her father’s footsteps.”
Further, the premise of the series:
“Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines the very first superhero team in comics, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.”
Moreover, the series is based on the DC character created by Geoff Johns. Also, Johns is writing the first episode and will serve as showrunner.
There is no precise premiere date yet. However, the plan is for the show to begin airing this August.
