As soon as Stargirl wrapped up Season 1 earlier this year, fans of the exciting new series were already clamoring for Season 2. Because the finale included some exciting reveals, superhero enthusiasts can’t wait to see what’s next.
Here’s everything you need to know as you wait for the next season.
What Is the Show’s Premise?
In case you’re late to the game, Stargirl is an American teen superhero series created and executive produced by Geoff Johns. The show features actress Brec Bassinger in the character of Courtney Whitmore, a Nebraska high school sophomore who accidentally discovers Starman’s suit and staff in her basement. After learning that her stepdad Pat (played by Luke Wilson) was once Starman’s sidekick, Courtney decides to join the ranks of the superhero community by becoming Stargirl.
How Can You Best Prepare for Season 2?
To catch up before Season 2, you may want to watch Stargirl’s first season. All thirteen episodes are available on DC Universe as well as on the CW website and app. If you’re short on time, however, read on for a brief synopsis of Season 1.
What Happened in Season 1?
In Season 1, Courtney transforms from high school student to superhero after she claims Starman’s Cosmic Staff. The staff gives her special powers, including:
· The ability to levitate and fly
· The power to manipulate objects
· The capability to create energy blasts
· The power to control energy movement
Stargirl harnesses her new superhero status to rebuild the Justice Society of America, which was destroyed a decade earlier. She assembles a team of young superheroes to help her battle villains and defeat the nefarious Injustice Society of America (ISA).
Stargirl, her stepdad, and a new generation of young superheroes succeed in stopping the ISA’s evil brainwashing plot, but there are casualties along the way. Additionally, the Season 1 finale is packed with both action and surprises, including:
· The deaths of villains Icicle, Brainwave, and Dragon King
· The return of Shade who will likely lead the ISA
· The escape of Solomon Grundy
· The unearthing of the villain Eclipso
· The revelation that Starman is miraculously still alive
When and Where Will Season 2 Air?
Although production for Season 2 is already underway, fans are still awaiting an official release date. The announcement is expected soon, and most fans are hoping that it will happen by spring or summer of 2021. While Season 1 streamed first on DC Universe and then on The CW, this will not happen for Season 2. Rather, upcoming episodes will air exclusively on The CW.
What’s Expected in Season 2?
All the cast members who survived the finale of Season 1 are expected to return for Season 2.
In the new season, you can expect to see the young superheroes facing off with new villains, Eclipso and The Shade. Starman’s return is also highly anticipated. Fans are already hoping that he and Courtney will join forces to defeat evil. Finally, it has been revealed that antagonist Solomon Grundy will be back.
A dose of superhero action and excitement is always welcome, and Stargirl delivers that and more. It’s easy to see why fans are so excited for the next season.
