'DC's Stargirl' Season 2: Release date, spoilers and all about The CW superhero show
'DC’s Stargirl’ was undoubtedly one of the best shows last year and turned out to be a sleeper hit for The CW. Based on the ‘Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.’ comics by Lee Moder and Geoff Johns, the show revolves around a high-school student named Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) from Los Angeles who is trying to search for her own identity.
One decade after nearly all the Justice Society of America (JSA) members were killed in a battle against the Injustice Society of America (ISA), Courtney discovers the cosmic staff of Starman and finds out that her stepfather used to be Starman’s sidekick. She ultimately joins the remaining members of JSA and calls herself ‘Stargirl’.

Shows like ‘Superman & Lois' and ‘Swamp Thing’ have been some of the finest shows produced by DC in recent times and seems like ‘Stargirl’ will also prove to be another blockbuster hit for the production company if they don’t mess around with it.
Season 1 had a triumphant conclusion and everyone is excited to see what will happen in the next edition. So, let’s take a look at everything we know about Season 2 of ‘Stargirl’.
Release date and how to watch
Season 2 of ‘Stargirl’ will premiere exclusively on The CW on Tuesday, August 10, at 8 pm EST. The time slot is currently held by ‘The Flash’. The second season will have 13 episodes in total, with the Season 2 finale airing on November 2, 2021. The episodes will be available the next day for free on The CW app and website.
Viewers can download The CW app from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Apart from that, The CW is also available on devices such as Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Vizio Smart TV, Chromecast, Android TV, AirPlay, Apple TV, and Xbox One.
The makers have not released the synopsis for the entire season, but they recently updated the fans with the official logline of the season’s first episode. The official synopsis of Season2’s first episode reads, “With summer break around the corner, Pat (Luke Wilson) suggests the family take a vacation after seeing that Courtney (Brec Bassinger) has been spending too much time focused on being Stargirl and not enough time on her schoolwork. Meanwhile, as Beth (Anjelika Washington) attempts to reconnect with Chuck, she stumbles upon a major secret her parents have been keeping from her. Elsewhere, Yolanda (Yvette Monreal) continues to be haunted by Brainwave’s death, and Rick (Cameron Gellman) secretly tracks Solomon Grundy after suspecting he may still be in the area.”
During the finale of Season 1, members of JSA are ready for a battle with ISA and a battle takes place. While the battle is over, the war is far from done. In the final moments of the season, we see Shade returning to the ISA headquarters. On the other hand, Shiv looks through old ISA artifacts and finds a prison holding Eclipso.
We cut to six weeks later and see all the members of JSA celebration Christmas together at the Whitmore house. The ending moments see Courtney patrolling Blue Valley as Stargirl with STRIPE at her side. However, the biggest revelation of the series came at the very end of the season.
In California, we see someone visiting the old apartment of Pat, and turns out he is actually Sylvester Pemberton, the real Starman.
All the original cast members will be returning for the upcoming edition. Brec Bassinger will be reprising the role of Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl on the show while Yvette Monreal will be back as Yolanda Montez /Wildcat.
Luke Wilson will be returning as Pat Dugan/S.T.R.I.P.E. while Eric Goins will come back for portraying The Gambler. Ysa Penarejo is one of the newest members to join the show and will play Jade, Green Lantern’s daughter, on the show.
Other actors to return for the series are Anjelika Washington (Beth Chapel/Dr. Mid-Nite), Cameron Gellman (Rick Tyler/Hourman), Meg DeLacey (Cindey Burman/Shiv), Jonathan Cake (Richard Swift/Shade), and Nick Tarabey (Eclipso).
The series is based on the character created by Geoff Johns and Lee Moder. Johns is also the creator and one of the executive producers of the show. Apart from Johns, names like Sarah Schechter, Glen Winter, Greg Beeman, Melissa Carter, and Greg Berlanti also serve as executive producers.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lance, James Dale Robinson, Trish Standard, and Rob Hardy are producers on The CW series.
The trailer of Season 2 shows JSA seemingly keen to disband as there are no more threats to keep them together. Stargirl tries to change their mind, but soon realizes leading a normal life is something that she should prepare herself for. On the other hand, it seems like Shade will be the main villain this season. However, it will be interesting to see how Eclipso comes out of the diamond and possess someone to carry out his vengeful wishes.
