The CW has announced the premiere date for the upcoming DC Universe Stargirl series from executive producer Geoff Johns.
The new DC Universe drama series STARGIRL follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (series star Brec Bassinger, “Bella and the Bulldogs,” “School of Rock,” “The Goldbergs”) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The series focuses on the character that started creator Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.
The first episode of Stargirl will debut on Tuesday May 12 at 9:00 PM ET. Then, on May 26th, the show will move to the 8:00 PM time slot for the remainder of the season.
