DC’s Stargirl, or simply Stargirl, is an American superhero television series created by Geoff Johns that premiered on streaming service DC Universe. It is based on the DC Comics superhero Courtney Whitmore, created by Johns and Lee Moder. The series follows high school student Courtney Whitmore who discovers the cosmic staff originally wielded by Starman and becomes the inspiration for a new generation of superheroes who become the new incarnation of the Justice Society of America.
DC Universe ordered the series in July 2018. Brec Bassinger was cast as Courtney Whitmore that September, with additional castings for her family members, the Justice Society of America, and the Injustice Society of America through February 2019. Filming for the series began in March 2019 in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Stargirl premiered on DC Universe on May 18, 2020; the season consists of 13 episodes and also aired the following day on the broadcast network The CW. In July 2020, the series was renewed for a second season, subtitled Summer School which premiered on August 10, 2021, exclusively on The CW. In May 2021, the series was renewed for a third season, subtitled Frenemies which premiered on August 31, 2022. In October 2022, it was announced that the third season would be its last.
Ahead of the series premiere, characters from the series were featured in a cameo during the Arrowverse crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths” through archive footage. It established Stargirl as existing on a parallel Earth to the Arrowverse. The show has received positive reviews from critics.
- Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore / Stargirl:
A high school student from Los Angeles who finds a powerful weapon, the Cosmic Staff and becomes the superheroine Stargirl. As Stargirl, she also becomes the leader of the second incarnation of the Justice Society of America (JSA). In preparation for the role, Bassinger did not look at the character’s previous portrayals by Britt Irvin on Smallville and Sarah Grey on Legends of Tomorrow because they were depicted as “older, more mature version[s]” of Stargirl. Bassinger added that the series follows the comic Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. more “in that she’s young, high school, naive, which I wanted to bring that into this version of Stargirl.” Maizie Smith portrays a five-year old Courtney.
- Yvette Monreal as Yolanda Montez / Wildcat II:

Despite his superheroics, Pat wants to provide a normal life for his family.

A member of the original JSA who used an anti gravity Cosmic Staff invented by scientist Ted Knight that Courtney later finds.

From there, he intends to run for president as a mouthpiece for Icicle to spread his ideals.
In July 2018, DC Universe gave a series order to Stargirl, consisting of thirteen episodes.
