With the second season on the horizon, fans of Brec Bassinger‘s Courtney Whitmore and the Justice Society of America have been anxious about the series’ future. It follows her move to the quaint town of Blue Valley, Nebraska. There, she uncovers her step-dads startling past as a member of the JSA. From there on, she carries on his mantle and becomes Stargirl. It becomes her task to assemble a new JSA to face the Injustice Society.
Variety is now reporting that the comic book series has scored an early season renewal at the CW. The adventures of Stargirl and the JSA will continue as the ranks of the team begin to expand and the threats get more menacing. It isn’t the only one, as it also is joined by an early renewal for the new Kung Fu series. Mark Pedowitz, CEO and chairman of the CW Network, shares his enthusiasm for the renewal.
We are beyond proud to continue to share the stories of Nicky Shen and Courtney Whitmore, two strong, powerful young women at the center of this new generation of hit shows for The CW in ‘Kung Fu’ and ‘DC’s Stargirl, While each boasts remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, ‘Kung Fu’ and ‘DC’S Stargirl’ have not only treated fans to some visually stunning action and high-flying heroics, but they also both strike very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at their core, and we are so excited to see what happens next.
The upcoming season of Stargirl is set to begin airing on Tuesday, August 10th. We will join Courtney in her efforts to reassemble the JSA and face their biggest threat yet, Eclipso.
