Stargirl Gets a Second Season Moving from DC Universe to The CW
Stargirl is being renewed for a second season, with a twist! The series will be showing exclusively “in-season” at The CW and on The CW’s digital platforms. The series had been debuting on DC Universe then airing the next day on The CW.
While DC Universe doesn’t release viewership numbers, the show has done well on The CW for a summer series. It has averaged a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 and a little over 1 million viewers per episode. That’s about what other DC shows on The CW does. With Live+3, the show goes to 0.4 and 1.5 million viewers.
The move again raises questions as to the future of the DC Universe app. Doom Patrol has moved from DC Universe to also be available on HBO Max. Swamp Thing which aired on DC Universe will eventually come to The CW. The Harley Quinn animated series also will be available on HBO Max soon as well. HBO Max has its own slate of DC-based shows coming to its platform passing the DC Universe platform entirely.
