After the almost instant destruction of “Swamp Thing,” it seems like the DC Universe is trying out a different strategy for the StarGirl series. Set to debut on the DC Universe, “StarGirl” will have an exclusive linear window on The CW Network, which is the home for DC’s live-action DC series. According to the announcement, the The CW will broadcast each episode the day after its debut on the DC Universe digital subscription service, and they will be available to stream online.
“StarGirl” stars Brec Bassinger in the title role, and is currently schedule to debut on the DC Universe in the second quarter of 2020. The network stated that the premiere date will be announced at a later time. After the premiere, the new episodes will be released weekly, and every episode of “StarGirl” will be available to stream on CW’s digital platforms. The CW channel will get them one-day after the DC Universe premiere, and the digital platform will get them the following day. Under The CW’s new digital strategy, viewers will be able to stream StarGirl from the beginning at any point throughout the season on CWTV.com and The CW app. You’ll be able to watch them for free, with no subscription, login or authentication required, but they will have ads. After the season finale of StarGirl, the full season will be available to binge on The CW’s digital platforms. The show also features 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.
If you are new to the character, the DC Universe drama follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (series star Brec Bassinger, “Bella and the Bulldogs,” “School of Rock,” “The Goldbergs”) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The series focuses on the character that started creator Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.
Geoff Johns (“Arrow,” “Batwoman,” “The Flash,” “Titans”) serves as showrunner and executive produces StarGirl with Melissa Carter (“Queen Sugar”), who serves as co-showrunner, as well as Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Based on the characters from DC created by Geoff Johns, the show is produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
