DC has decided to postpone the debut of its upcoming live-action series Stargirl. Previously announced to debut May 11, the Geoff Johns-led series will now debut on DC Universe May 18 – with a CW broadcast on May 19. DC did not disclose the reason for the change.
Stargirl remains scheduled to release weekly episodes every Monday on streaming, then on CW the following day.
“I’ve written a lot of superhero stories in my career, but [Stargirl] is by far the most personal on every level,” Johns said earlier this week in a letter to the press. “The cast, crew and everyone involved has given their talent and passion to bringing Stargirl to life and I couldn’t be more grateful for them. I think their hard work paid off and, at the very least, I hope you smile a few times while you watch Brec Bassinger, playing Courtney, and Luke Wilson, playing Pat, take up their mantles individually and together.”
DC originally announced that Stargirl would debut in August/September 2019, but they have since pushed back the show on several occasions.
