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.
The number of decent CW originals is dwindling, but we at least have Stargirl for one more year. Miss Blonde-Curls will be flying back in just before fall for another season on the network.
Y’know how most networks reveal their full weekly schedule for the fall in May? The CW is just now getting to that, two months late. Perhaps the recent shakeup behind the scenes contributed to this, but however it happened, we didn’t know what was going where until now.
When you cancel all your shows, this is what you get. The CW just released the details on what it plans to do next season, and it’s nothing much.
We’ve still got a wait of almost two months before Stargirl once again graces us with her bouncy locks and living staff, but the second season is close enough to completion for The CW to put out the first teaser today.
The CW behaved in typical fashion this week by renewing two of its shows at the earliest possible moment. Stargirl has been granted a third season despite it being months before its second is due to air, and their new series Kung Fu has been granted a return next season after just four weeks on the air.
The CW put out its schedule of summer premieres this morning. The biggest question was where fan favorite Stargirl was going to appear — the network had previously promised “summer 2021” but did not elaborate further.
There will be plenty of events, announcements and trailers coming your way when New York City Comic-Con returns for another year this October….though, as with everything else, it will be a somewhat different experience. The panels will all be virtual, and you’ll have to supply your own bad vendor food,but the excitement will remain the same.
Stargirl is more than just the title of a YA lit novel about a hippie from Arizona. It’s also the name of a classic DC superhero who hasn’t had many turns in the sun. But now Stargirl may have her time to shine as the centerpiece of her own DC Universe series, coming next year. This weekend DC let loose the world’s first glimpse at her full costume, worn by actress Brec Bassinger:
Warner Bros. and DC have announced that they have cast actress Brec Bassinger (no relation to Kim, this one has two “S”es) as the superhero Stargirl in their upcoming series of the same name.
