DC Universe’s Stargirl series will air on the streaming service AND The CW

November 26th, 2019 by Marc Comments

A few months ago we had a report that Stargirl would not, as planned, be heading to the DC Universe streaming service, but would rather be jumping to The CW and joining the Arrowverse.

It seems  that, while not true, there is some truth to be gleaned here.

It seems that the series will in fact steam as Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing did on DC Universe but the next day will air on The CW.

The show will not be part of the Arrowverse in the same way Legends of Tomorrow, Flash, Arrow, Black Lightning and Supergirl are but will definitely have some sort of connection.

Now the character of Stargirl has previously been on Legends of Tomorrow but was a different version of her that the DC Universe one played by Brec Bassinger and, given how the Arrowverse is steeped in the lore of multiverses, this won’t be a problem for the story. However… we’re hearing that this Stargirl will be introduced in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths event which will then lead into her own series which is expected to arrive early next year.

So she’s not part of the Arrowverse. Except she kinda is.

Got it.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
