Stargirl is a show all about legacy, with the next generation of heroes following the defeat of the original Justice Society of America. Last season Stargirl saw the introduction of Ysa Penarejo as Jennie-Lynn Hayden, better known as Jade and the daughter of Alan Scott. We didn’t get a ton of Jennie, as she struggled to control her abilities and split the town in the pursuit of finding her long-lost twin brother Todd.
Jennie is getting closer to uncovering the truth as Entertainment Weekly is reporting that actor Tim Gabriel has been cast as Todd Rice, Jennie’s brother, and the hero Obsidian. Todd is a member of the LGBTQ+ community and has the ability to manipulate shadows that he’s yet to be able to control. Todd found his way to mysterious folks at the Helix Institute after living on the streets.
At the very end of Stargirl Season 2, we were introduced to Mr. Bones, the man behind the shadows at the Helix Institute, voiced by none other than Keith David, he seemed quite determined to give Blue Valley a visit. We previously theorized that Stargirl season 3 could introduce the supervillain team Helix, led by Mr. Bones.
Gabriel is known for his work in S.W.A.T. and Why Women Kill, as well as the upcoming horror film The Death That Awaits. The upcoming third season of Stargirl has yet to set a return date but Entertainment Weekly states that we can expect the series to return sometime this Summer.
