DC Universe and The CW have set May premiere dates for Stargirl.
Last year, it was reported that episodes of Stargirl would air on The CW following their debut on the DC Universe streaming service. Now, Stargirl will officially premiere on DC Universe on May 11, 2020, before airing on The CW on May 12.
DC Universe subscribers will have access to additional exclusive offerings tied to Stargirl, with new episodes being released on a weekly basis. Following the linear broadcast, each episode will be available to stream on The CW’s digital platforms, with the full season being available on those services after the season finale as well.
Stargirl won’t be the only DC Universe series to be available on two platforms. Last year, fans learned that the second season of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol will also air on HBO Max, with the first season being added to the upcoming WarnerMedia streaming service once season 2 begins.
Here is the official synopsis for Stargirl:
