DC’s Stargirl to End with Season 3
Announcing the news, series creator Geoff Johns released a statement on Monday, revealing that they had an indication that the show might get canceled after the third season, so they wrote the conclusion accordingly.
“Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons. With all the brewing changes at the network, we were aware this was possibly the last season, so we wrote with that in mind and have delivered what I believe to be the best season of Stargirl yet, with complete creative closure,” Johns said in the statement.
He added, “The cast and crew are extraordinary, and I’d like to thank them for helping me bring this series to life. Brec embodied Courtney in every way possible — with grace, strength and humor — exceeding my wildest expectations.”
“I am grateful to WBTV and The CW for giving us a home to tell this story and to honor my beloved late sister, and I’m beyond thankful to the press and fans who have always championed us for three amazing seasons. Most series never get this far. We couldn’t be more proud of our show and the fan community it’s built!” Johns concluded.
Show’s Lead Brec Bassinger Reacts
Brec Bassinger, who plays the titular role of Stargirl, has reacted to the show going off-air. “Getting to play Stargirl and be a part of the DC Universe has been the greatest honor, and I am so grateful for every moment of it,” Bassinger said.
“I would like to thank our fearless leader Geoff Johns, along with WBTV, The CW, the cast and crew of Stargirl, and of course, the fans. Thank you. This show will forever live in my heart,” she added.
