This rumor comes courtesy of Collider’s Jeff Sneider, who claimed on his podcast The Sneider Cut that Stargirl may be making the move from DC Universe to The CW, signifying that episodes will need to be recut to fit into The CW’s network broadcast standards. Sneider also claims that uncut episodes for Stargirl may be made available to stream exclusively on Warner Bros. Entertainment’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max.
DC Universe gave Stargirl a series order back in 2018 for 13 episodes.
