Stargirl skips DC Universe and gets Season 2 renewal from The CW

If you’re missing the writing on the wall with DC Universe you’re not paying attention. Today, Stargirl’s second season was announced, but it will be MIA on the DC streaming service.

This season, DC Universe subscribers got the exclusive airing of new episodes on Mondays and Tuesdays on The CW. Instead, Season 2 will be exclusive to The CW. DC Universe launched in September 2018 and has been home to original series like Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing.

The roll-out for Stargirl was suspicious and Doom Patrol’s second season also getting a run on HBO Max raised eyebrows further. At this point I definitely wouldn’t recommend reupping that DCU subscription.


Stargirl will effectively fill the gap of Supergirl while series star Melissa Benoist is away from her show during her pregnancy/early months of getting acquainted with her newborn. That works out well for everyone and as a big fan of Stargirl, I’m glad it’s already locked in for a second season.

What do you think of the news especially if you’re a DCU subscriber?
