With just a few months left before the premiere of season two on Tuesday, August 10, it appears The CW remains committed to its DC universe. As first reported by TVLine, Stargirl has received a season three renewal on the network.
Additionally, The CW is ordering season two of its new hit series, Kung Fu. In a statement, network CEO Mark Pedowitz expresses his excitement to see the continuation of both shows.
“We are beyond proud to continue to share the stories of Nicky Shen and Courtney Whitmore, two strong, powerful young women at the center of this new generation of hit shows for The CW,” Pedowitz said. “While each boasts remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, Kung Fu and DC’s Stargirl have not only treated fans to some visually stunning action and high-flying heroics, but they also both strike very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at their core, and we are so excited to see what happens next.”
Throughout season one of Stargirl, Courtney Whitmore, portrayed by Brec Bassinger builds her own superteam alongside Dr. Mid-Nite, Wildcat, and Hourman. Moreover, the upcoming second season promises to introduce new characters like Jakeem Thunder, portrayed by Alkoya Brunson, and Jade, portrayed by Ysa Penarejo.
Debuting on the now-defunct DC Universe streaming service, Stargirl follows high school student Courtney Whitmore. After discovering the cosmic staff, she becomes the inspiration for a new generation of superheroes who become the Justice Society of America. Ahead of its initial series premiere, characters from the series were featured in the Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, establishing Stargirl as existing on a parallel Earth to the Arrowverse series.
