Stargirl is premiering in early 2020 and it will air on The CW one day after its DC Universe debut but the titular superheroine will first appear in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
The future of the DC Universe streaming service has been brought into question recently with the cancellation of Swamp Thing before the first season even finished airing as well as the possibility of the streaming service merging into the upcoming HBO Max.
However, DC Universe still has upcoming content on the slate with Titans earning a third season and the upcoming animated Harley Quinn season debuting next Friday.
