DC Universe’s upcoming Stargirl series will also air on The CW Television Network.
DC Universe’s upcoming slate of original shows includes a series centered on Stargirl, the young heroine created Geoff Johns and inspired by the comic book writer’s late sister, who was killed in 1996 in a plane explosion. Today, it was announced that new episodes of Stargirl will also air on The CW one day after they debut on DC Universe.
The episodes of Stargirl will also be available on The CW’s digital platforms such as The CW seed. The deal is similar to the one Warner Bros. has to stream the second season of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol on HBO Max as well.

Television, Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.
