The smash-hit series Stargirl has been renewed for a second season, but the news has a surprising twist. According to Variety, season 2 of the series will air exclusively on The CW.
While a DC Universe original series, the show has also aired on The CW after debuting on the streaming service. But now Stargirl has moved exclusively to the network, and it will no longer stream on the DC Universe.
The move has come as quite a shock to some fans as this further dwindles the streamer’s number of original series. Currently, Doom Patrol airs on both the DC Universe and HBO Max, which will soon add Harley Quinn to its roster of shows.
This is the second DC Universe series to find a new home on the network. It was announced in May that The CW had acquired the broadcast rights to season 1 of Swamp Thing, which was canceled soon after it launched on the streaming service.
Stargirl debuted on the DC Universe on May 18 and the 19 on The CW. While the streamer does not release viewership numbers, the show has performed well on The CW. It has reportedly averaged over 1 million viewers per episode, which is on par with other DC superhero shows that air on The CW.
