'Stargirl' Season 2: Will There Be Another Season of The CW Show?

Stargirl is about to go into its endgame, with the two-part finale starting this week. Though things are guaranteed to get bad between Courtney Whitmore (played by Brec Bassinger) and the Injustice Society, it looks like the team will be back to fight another day. The CW has announced that the DC Comics show will be back for Season 2, with a release date likely to come in 2021.

However, there will be a change going into Stargirl Season 2. Whereas the first season aired on both The CW and DC Universe, the next season will only air on the former. With the current season, episodes have aired on DC Universe the day before being shown on TV, but for Season 2 each installment will come straight to The CW website and app after airing.

Then, once the whole show has aired, it will come to HBO Max.

All of the current cast is expected to return for more episodes—that is, if none of them lose their lives in the upcoming two-parter.

Unlike fellow CW DC show Batwoman, which had its lead, Ruby Rose, leave after Season 1 and get replaced by Javicia Leslie, Bassinger is expected to come back for more. She is likely to be joined by Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Jake Austin Walker, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson and Christopher James Baker.

The renewal of Stargirl came seven weeks into its CW run, where it has been averaging a million viewers per episode.

As for what we can expect from the plot of Season 2, no details have been revealed yet, with the cast and crew likely waiting until the finale before spilling any major details about the next season.

Stargirl has become the latest of The CW's DC shows to be renewed for another season. Previously, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Supergirl have all been commissioned for additional seasons. The Arrowverse is also growing, with a Superman & Lois show due to start next season. Arrow, meanwhile, came to an end earlier in 2020.

Apart from Swamp Thing, which CW has bought from DC Universe, none of the DC shows are expected to return in fall 2020. The Flash, Superman & Lois, Black Lightning, and Batwoman are all expected to start in January 2021, while Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl are being held for midseason, which according to TVLine will be, "probably late spring/summer."

As Stargirl was not on this list of shows, fans should expect a release date delay for the series. At the earliest, the show is expected in midseason, but it is more likely fans will get to see it in later summer or even fall 2021.

Stargirl airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
