If you are a fan of Stargirl on the CW network, you may be wondering if there will be a season 2. Stargirl follows Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) and the Injustice Society. Thankfully for fans, our favorite characters will live to fight all of the baddies another day.
While Stargirl, created by Geoff Johns, has been officially renewed for season 2, there are some changes that will come with the renewal. The biggest change will be where and how you can view season 2 of Stargirl. In season 1, you could watch Stargirl on both The CW and DC Universe. For season 2, the show will no longer be available the day of airing on the DC Universe, but will instead go straight to The CW website and associated mobile app. Once the show has aired on The CW, the episode will then be viewable on HBO Max instead of DC Universe.
We expect to see the full cast of characters to be back for season 2. Bassinger is slated to return in her role as Stargirl and will likely be joined by James Baker, Neil Jackson, Meg Delacy, Hunter Sansone, Jake Austin, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Anjelika Washington, Yvette Monreal, Amy Smart and Luke Wilson. Many have speculated that Stargirl may be replaced by a new face, similar to the other CW show Batwoman, which saw Ruby Rose leave who was then was replaced by Javicia Leslie in season 2. All stars are pointing to Bassinger returning to her role, which is great news for fans who enjoy seeing her performance and how she plays the character of Stargirl.
The renewal for season 2 came only 7 episodes into season 1, where each episode was averaging about one million viewers per episode. If the popularity of each episode can continue, which definitely could be the case due to the popularity of HBO max, it isn’t inconceivable that this show could be renewed for several seasons, but we’ll just have to wait and see. As with anything in the television industry, upsets and bad news are part of the game. With DC retooling the Justice League movie recently, it’s unclear what other changes could be made when it comes to running DC television shows and which ones will be continued and which ones will be ended.
Until we hear any differently, keep your eyes peeled for season 2 of Stargirl on The CW and HBO Max.
