Following confirmation earlier this year that The Flash and Riverdale are coming to an end, Stargirl is the latest DC Comics derivative series to be axed by The CW. The show stars Brec Bassinger as teen Courtney Whitmore who discovers her step-father Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) was sidekick to the original Starman (Joel McHale).
“Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons,” said series creator and executive producer Geoff Johns.
“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. The cast and crew are extraordinary, and I’d like to thank them for helping me bring this series to life. Brec embodied Courtney in every way possible — with grace, strength, and humor — exceeding my wildest expectations. I am grateful to WBTV and The CW for giving us a home to tell this story and honor my beloved late sister, and I’m beyond thankful to the press and fans who have always championed us for three amazing seasons. Most series never get this far. We couldn’t be more proud of our show and the fan community it’s built!”
“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,” Bassinger said. “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.”
