The CW has picked up a second season of DC Comics series Stargirl — and the broadcast network will become the exclusive in-season home for the show.
The renewal comes midway through its first season, which runs on both streaming platform DC Universe and, a day later, on The CW. Season two will debut exclusively on The CW and stream the next day on the network’s free, ad-supported platform, further dwindling DC Universe’s roster of original shows. Stargirl will still have an SVOD home, on HBO Max, after the season wraps.
Stargirl has performed solidly on The CW since its on-air debut on May 19. It’s averaging 1.55 million viewers and a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49 after three days of delayed viewing, which puts it in the top half of the network’s scripted roster for the season. (Like other streamers, DC Universe doesn’t release viewing figures.)
The cast also includes Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Jake Austin Walker, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson and Christopher James Baker.
Johns and co-showrunner Melissa Carter executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Greg Beeman. The show comes from Berlanti Productions, Mad Ghost Productions and Warner Bros. TV.
