Stargirl Canceled After Three Seasons on The CW
DC‘s Stargirl has been canceled after three seasons on The CW. The series’ third season is currently ongoing and is set to end on December 7th which will now mark the end of the series altogether. Nexstar Media Group recently acquired a majority stake in the network and based on their plans for the network’s content, this may not come as much of a surprise. It is an unfortunate fate for a promising series that was created by Geoff Johns and starred Brec Bassinger.
With many cancellations coming from around the DC universe including Batgirl, which was set to be an HBO Max original film, and series such as Batwoman, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Naomi, and also the complete revamp of the HBO Max original series Green Lantern which will now focus on Jon Stewart, it leaves many questions surrounding some of the existing DC properties still standing.
Johns released an official statement commenting on the cancellation in which he also calls the cast and crew extraordinary, saying;
“Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons. With all the brewing changes at the network, we were aware this was possibly the last season, so we wrote with that in mind and have delivered what I believe to be the best season of Stargirl yet, with complete creative closure,”
Johns also spoke of Bassinger, saying:
“Brec embodied Courtney in every way possible — with grace, strength and humor — exceeding my wildest expectations.”
“Getting to play Stargirl and be a part of the DC Universe has been the greatest honor, and I am so grateful for every moment of it. I would like to thank our fearless leader Geoff Johns, along with WBTV, The CW, the cast and crew of Stargirl, and of course, the fans. Thank you. This show will forever live in my heart.”
Also starring in the series were Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, Alkoya Brunson, Neil Hopkins, Joy Osmanski, Amy Smart, Luke Wilson, and Joel McHale.
Johns is the showrunner of the series and executive produces alongside Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. New episodes of Stargirl will continue to release on The CW through December 7.
