The CW Announces The Fate of DC's 'Stargirl' | Stargirl, Television, The CW

"DC's Stargirl" is based on the DC characters created by Johns.

DC's Stargirl is returning for a second season on the CW.

This will make DC's Stargirl, initially a DC Universe original, a CW series.

Deadline adds that going forward, Stargirl will not be available on DC Universe. For the former, the renewal is a good sign, and by all accounts the show has done well for The CW. The show has been a surprisingly fun, throwback addition to the schedule this year - hitting the sweet spot between The CW's super-shows and the high school drama that is the network's bread and butter. Like the latter show, which started off as a CBS series before migrating to the CW, Stargirl will likely take advantage of the neat multiverse structure that the CW superhero series are packaged in, and take place in an alternate dimension from the other shows. She eventually learns that Pat was once the sidekick of the legendary Starman of the Justice Society of America and, with the help of the Cosmic Staff, she becomes a hero in her own right and forms a new iteration of the JSA. With Stargirl, which debuted to mostly positive reviews, leaving DC Universe, this could be the death knell for the streaming platform. Of four live-action series that have debuted on the service, only one, Titans, remains exclusive to DCU. Doom Patrol Season 2, for example, was immediately available on HBO Max when the series returned late last month. A third season of Titans has been announced, but no release information has been revealed for it yet. And if DC Universe loses all of its shows, it's an open question about how long the service can continue.

The news appears to be another blow for DC Universe, which has lost or shared most of its original content with other partners.

Regarding the DC Universe streaming service, recently saw the news that Doom Patrol Season 2 will air on HBO Max - so that only now leaves Titans, and the Harley Quinn and Young Justice animated shows on DC Universe. The CW's Arrow-verse maestro Greg Berlanti also serves as executive producer alongside Sarah Schechter and Greg Beeman. Joining Bassinger as members of the STARGIRL cast are 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.
