The CW’s just released the first official trailer for its latest comic book-inspired series, Stargirl. The teaser trailer follows the main character, Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl, as she discovers family secrets. The trailer also teases that we can expect the series to launch in spring 2020.
The network previously announced new Stargirl episodes will premiere on the DC Universe digital service followed by their debut on The CW the next day.
Brec Bassinger (Bella and the Bulldogs, School of Rock) leads the cast playing the titular character. Season one cast members also include Luke Wilson (Roadies), Amy Smart (Mississippi Requiem), Trae Romano (Little Ghosts), Yvette Monreal (Rambo: Last Blood), and Anjelika Washington (We’re Not Friends). In addition, Meg DeLacy (The Fosters), Neil Jackson (Sleepy Hollow), Jake Austin Walker (Five Points), Christopher James Baker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Hunter Sansone (Unfollowed) star in the first season.
Stargirl is based on a character created by Geoff Johns. The superhero was inspired by Johns’ late sister and first appeared in 1999. Johns (Arrow, Batwoman, The Flash, Titans) is the season one showrunner and serves as executive producer along with co-showrunner Melissa Carter, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schecter.
“The new DC Universe drama series Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.”
