Stargirl actress Brec Bassinger recently opened up about what to expect from the series going forward.
After the dramatic finale of Stargirl saw the battle against the Injustice Society of America, it seems the second season will get a little darker according to lead star Brec Bassinger. The actress recently spoke to ComicBook.com about the future of Stargirl, which is moving to The CW for its second outing. Bassinger explained that Eclipso and the Shade are a different kind of evil than the threat posed by the ISA the team faced in the first season.
“I don’t know, because I’ve read up a little bit on the Shade. And you see Shiv come out with the stone, so Eclipso. They’re very dark. Don’t get me wrong. The ISA is evil. But The Shade and Eclipso, they have this darkness among them that I think is very different than the ISA. It’s a different type of evil that Courtney hasn’t experienced yet. So I’m really excited to get to dive into that, but it’s definitely going to be different for her.”
Following the climactic final episode of Stargirl, it’s clear there’s more threats on the way that the hero will have to face, especially since Solomon Grundy is still on the run. But Stargirl actress Brec Bassinger is excited for a number of things in season two, although she didn’t go into specifics, she’s hoping to get more chances to fight with the Cosmic Staff. Take a look below.
“More fun stuff. The answer changes every time I get asked it, but I’m so excited about so many different things. It’s just depends on what comes to my brain at that point. But towards the end of the season, I was getting really confident with my staff and I just really hope I can keep that going in season two and just get more confident with it and kick butt.”
