The upcoming release in the spring period for the Stargirl series on the DC Universe streaming service revealed recently that it’s the first original series from the service that will get a non-linear debut as The CW haw picked it up. While no premiere date is set yet, The CW will broadcast episodes a day after they arrive on the service when it hits in the spring 2020 period. The show also got a big nod amid the Crisis on Infinite Earths event this week and now The CW put out their first trailer for the show to entice fans into checking it out.
Once the broadcast is done, the episode will be available to stream on The CW’s free digital platforms, CWTV.com and The CW app. The network has acquired full-season stacking rights, meaning that all aired episodes will remain available on the CW’s digital outlets throughout the season. After the season finale of Stargirl, the full season will be available to binge on The CW’s digital platforms.
The cast includes Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore, Luke Wilson, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, Ian Ziering, Lou Ferrigno Jr., Brian Stapf, Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins, Megan DeLacy, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Jake Austin Walker, Cameron Gellman, Hunter Sansone, Neil Jackson, Hina Khan, and Nelson Lee.
The title character was the first one that Geoff Johns created upon joining DC Comics back in 1999 and he’ll be writing for the series and serving as an executive producer along with Greg Berlanti and working with Sarah Schechter. The series is set for a 2019 debut with a thirteen episode run planned. This isn’t using the Stargirl that we saw in the Legends of Tomorrow series during its trip to the 1940s, however, as it’s focusing on the teenaged Courtney Whitmore that Johns created.
Plot Concept: Courtney Whitmore’s smooth-going high school experience is derailed when her mother marries and moves the household from Los Angeles to bucolic Blue Valley in distant Nebraska. Struggling to adapt, Courtney discovers her stepfather has a secret past as a superhero sidekick. She also discovers an artifact of immense power, a long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, and Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
