It will also air on The CW effective Tuesday, May 19, at 8/7c, and will lead in to the rest of DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5. 

The series was initially set to premiere out of The Flash, but with the superhero drama's production halted, it will run out of new episodes soon. 

The Flash is set to return once the series returns to production later this year. 

According to the series’ official description, DC’s Stargirl “follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska … and inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past.”

Murphy and Pretzel - In The Dark Season 1 Episode 2

The CW has been trying to fill the gaps on the schedule because of all of its TV shows that were still in production grinding to a halt. 

The network has already pulled upcoming episodes of The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, Supergirl, and Riverdale. 

Supernatural, which was airing its final season has been pulled with seven episodes unaired -- two of which have yet to be filmed. 

The others were in post-production when the pandemic caused them to shutdown.

The Undoing also stars Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, a Manhattan power couple whose idyllic life is rocked by “a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations,” according to the series’ official logline.

“Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and her family."

Finally, NBC's Will & Grace will conclude for the second time on Thursday, April 23 at 9/8c. 

The finale will be preceded by a retrospective special hosted by Eric McCormack that will feature clips from previous episodes.
