Old and New Combine in DC's Stargirl


Superhero movies, shows, and comic books are some of the best forms of escapist entertainment. You can count on thrilling plot twists, impressive graphics, and shocking superpowers. If you've watched all the latest movies, turn to the small screen for your next superhero fix: DC's Stargirl.

Your New Favorite Superhero

At the beginning of Stargirl, which is executive produced by Geoff Johns, Courtney Whitmore seems an unlikely choice for a superhero. Her mom, Barbara, has just married Pat Dugan, and the parents have decided to move the family, which includes Pat's son Mike, to Blue Valley. Now, Courtney must grapple with the pain of moving and starting a new school in the middle of the holiday season. She doesn't get along well with Pat or Mike, although Pat tries to connect with her by sharing memories of moving as a teenager. At school, Courtney has a terrible first day, eating with the least cool kids and earning detention.

Despite this difficult start, Courtney's life is about to change forever. In the middle of all her frustration, she discovers Starman's Cosmic Staff. The superhero gave this to his sidekick Stripesy 10 years ago, just before Starman's death. Because this handoff occurred just as the Injustice Society of America wiped out most of the Justice Society of America, Stripesy, also known as Pat Dugan, has yet to fulfill his friend's wishes. Still, the staff responds to Courtney's commands, and as she continues to grapple with her relationship with her stepfather, it seems as if her destiny is to reunite the JSA.

New and Familiar Faces

Emerging and seasoned actors and actresses combine to create an unforgettable cast:

  • Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore
  • Amy Smart as Barbara Whitmore
  • Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan
  • Trae Romano as Mike Dugan
  • Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman
  • Yvette Monreal as Yolanda Montez
  • Anjelika Washington as Beth Chapel
  • Jake Austin Walker as Henry King Jr.
  • Cameron Gellman as Rick Tyler

Whether it's your first time watching these stars or you've followed all their work, prepare to be captivated by their performances.

Now that you've got the backstory and cast in mind, it's time to dive into Stargirl. The first season, which debuted in May 2020, has 13 episodes, all of which are on The CW as well as YouTube, Google Play, HBO Max, and Vudu. Don't take too long, though; the second season is set to come out in summer 2021.
