DC’s Stargirl is arriving on The CW one week later in order to take up an anchor point for Tuesday nights. DC Universe announced on Thursday that the live action series, which stars Brec Bassinger as the titular heroine, will arrive in May 19th on The CW, with the DC Universe airing taking place the night before.

The series will then continue to air Mondays on DC Universe and the next night on The CW. It is taking the place of The Flash, which is going on hiatus with a few episodes left to produce due to the COVID-19 shutdown of Hollywood, on The CW.

DC’s Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) as she moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska after her mother remarries Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) and inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The live-action superhero drama reimagines the 1999 Stargirl comics and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America. Executive producer Geoff Johns, who created the series and the comic book it is based on, was inspired by his late sister, who was was killed in a plane accident, in creating the character.
