When will 'Stargirl' Season 2 return? What to expect when show comes back as The CW original
In the first season of 'Stargirl', we saw how Courtney had chanced upon Starman's staff that was kept safely by his sidekick Pat, who is now Courtney's step-father. How she familiarizes herself with the staff will be intriguing
'Stargirl' Season 1 premiered on DC's streaming service and it consisted of 13 episodes. The show's season 1 concluded in August 2020 and The CW network, on which the show aired a day after its streaming premiere, renewed the show for a second season. Actor Brec Bassinger will continue to play the titular character of Stargirl aka Courtney Whitmore. We will get to see Courtney explore the world that her stepfather had been impervious to as a former sidekick of superhero Starman and a member fo the Justice Society of America.
Where we left off
At the end of 'Stargirl' Season 1, we saw how Stargirl and the Justice Society of America had managed to overthrow Icicle, the leader of Injustice Society of America and a man who was dead set on creating a new world because he promised his wife before her death that he would change the world that their son is brought up in. Then we also see how Courtney's life is in shambles after her mother is kidnapped and S.T.R.I.P.E's identity is also outed. The last episode of the 13-episode season also featured the youngsters of Justice Society of America come together to stop Icicle all while Brainwave is back in power. Despite Pat and Courtney being forced to fight each other, despite the death of one of their members earlier in the season, Courtney and her team continue to push forward and fight for what is right. The season leaves us with one question and that is about the research that Barbara had done into Starman's death.
What we'd like to see
So what we'd like to see in the second season of the show is for Starman's identity to be revealed. Who is he and how is he connected to Courtney? If he isn't, why has his staff chosen Courtney as his successor? This question had weighed heavily on Courtney too and this conflict within her had resulted in her losing her power and the control that she had had over the staff. It is until her mother Barbara and her stepfather and guide Pat help Courtney build back the confidence that she had built does Courtney really have a hold over how she uses the staff. So the connection between Stargirl and Starman is something that we are super excited to see.
When is it returning
The second season of 'Stargirl' is expected to return to The CW in January 2021 after the first season was streamed on DC's streaming site in 2020.
