The rumors are true!
DC Universe drama, Stargirl, will air on The CW.
Episodes of the forthcoming drama will first air on DC Universe before airing on broadcast TV the next day on the young-skewing network
Episodes will also stream free on The CW's free digital platforms, but it is expected that it will be with ads, meaning that the only way to watch without ads is to subscribe to DC Universe.
"High school sophomore Courtney Whitmore who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past," reads the official logline.
"This new DC Universe series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series premiering in 2019, produced by Warner Bros. Television, Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions."
Courtney/Stargirl is “a smart, athletic and above all else kind” teenager whose “seemingly perfect life hits a major speedbump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California to Blue Valley, Nebraska."
"Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero."
"‘Borrowing’ the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.”
Stargirl has already wrapped production on Season 1.
A definite premiere date has yet to be announced, but it is expected to be in the first quarter of 2020.
Sharing TV shows is no new to DC Universe.
The streamer confirmed earlier this year that Season 2 of Doom Patrol would air on HBO Max, in addition to DC Universe.
