The DC Universe, now turned CW series Stargirl starring Brec Bassinger has gotten an official premiere date. Stargirl will premiere on Tuesday, May 12, at 9 pm following a fresh new episode of The Flash for that week. Starting Tuesday, May 26, Stargirl will move up from an hour from its 9 pm timeslot to an 8-9 pm broadcast spot. Taking over the broadcast spot of The Flash since the current season will have ended by then.
According to initial reports regarding Stargirl’s transition from the DC Universe over to The CW. Stargirl would be airing and streaming concurrently on both platforms. Deadline’s new report does not mention anything regarding whether or not the DC Universe streaming will be streaming Stargirl concurrently with The CW’s broadcast.
Although, Deadline mentions that just like with every CW series, episodes of Stargirl will go up for streaming on The CW app the next day after the episode airs on national television. We do not know if this will be the case for the DC Universe as well.
The CW has the overall season rights to Stargirl meaning that all of the aired episodes (13 total) will be available for streaming on The CW app. Additionally, once the entire first season of Stargirl concludes, it will be fully available on The CW app. Of course, this is a plus for all of our fellow show bingers out there.
Based on the DC characters created by Geoff Johns, Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.
In addition to Brec Bassinger filling in the lead role. Stargirl stars Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker, and Hunter Sansone.
