You might have been wondering, but it’s now confirmed true: The CW’s Stargirl is currently running through what will be its last season. According to executive producer Geoff Johns, they were aware of this fact months ago and tailored the show to have a definitive ending. Hopefully that means Cindy Burman will finally get her act together.
“Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons,” Johns said in a statement. He’s not kidding — he created Courtney Whitmore in 1999 after the death of his sister in a plane crash, and based the superhero in her memory. With all the brewing changes at the network, we were aware this was possibly the last season,” he shared, “so we wrote with that in mind and have delivered what I believe to be the best season of Stargirl yet, with complete creative closure.”
“I am grateful to WBTV and The CW for giving us a home to tell this story and to honor my beloved late sister, and I’m beyond thankful to the press and fans who have always championed us for three amazing seasons. Most series never get this far. We couldn’t be more proud of our show and the fan community it’s built!”
It should go without saying that you shouldn’t get attached to pretty much anything on The CW right now that costs more than $100 an episode to produce. Nancy Drew just announced its end a few days ago, and several other shows confirmed their exits months before that. As the network transitions into its sunset years, everything that made it appealing is being dismantled.
This, of course, really sucks for anything that just got here – – we don’t have high expectations for Gotham Knights, but we also doubt it will live long past its premiere.
