New cast members have been announced for season two of DC’s Stargirl. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season so far.
Stargirl first debuted in the Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, with fans getting a glimpse of her on the new Earth-2.
When her own show finally arrived in 2020 – based on the comic Stars and S.T.R.I.PE. – fans saw Courtney Whitmore comes across the cosmic staff, soon taking on the Stargirl mantle. She brought together a group of superheroes, becoming the Justice Society of America – but what’s in store for season two?
When will Stargirl season 2 be released?
Fans are already eager to learn more about the young superhero and her potential in the Arrowverse, and they won’t have much longer to wait until her return. Though nothing is confirmed, season two is expected to arrive on The CW around summer 2021.
The show is currently in production, so there’s hope for a teaser or trailer to come soon.
Who will be starring in season 2?
Brec Bassinger will be returning to her lead role as Courtney Whitmore – Stargirl – joined by Luke Wilson as S.T.R.I.P.E, Yvette Monreal as Wildcat, Cameron Gellman as Hourman, and Anjelika Washington as Dr Mid-Nite, among others.
The original cast will reportedly be joined by Arrow star Nick Tarabay as Eclipso, and Jonathan Cake as The Shade – the two main villains in the new season.
At New York Comic Con, Stargirl’s creator Geoff Johns claimed that The Shade was “the most powerful of them all, and very threatening because no one knows exactly what he wants.”
Another addition to the cast is Alkoya Brunson as Jakeem Thunder, according to Decider, who is expected to be the youngest member of the JSA. It was already known that Thunderbolt would be making an appearance in the second season of Stargirl – voiced by Jim Gaffigan – but now that Brunson has been cast, anticipation has risen even more.
What will happen?
The finale of season one saw the JSA defeat the Injustice Society of America but also left plenty of cliffhangers, including the arrival of two villains – the previously mentioned The Shade and Eclipso – and the surprise return of the original Starman.
One character, Cameron Mahkent, has a lot of potential for the next season, as he is still very much in the dark about people having superpowers. In a recent interview, actor Hunter Sansone said: “He’s the last person to know about this other life that Blue Valley has. So, I think the sky is the limit as far as what can go down for Cameron in season 2, and specifically between what can happen between him and Courtney.”
Storylines from the first season will continue to be built upon, but Johns has also teased something new and different this time around too.
Now that production is underway and more of the cast continue to be announced, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Stargirl and the rest of the Justice Society of America.
