Stargirl is a superhero teen drama, based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Geoff Johns, who co-created Stargirl, also created the show and serves as an executive producer.

Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) is a high school sophomore whose life takes an unexpected turn when she discovers a powerful staff of cosmic power and learns her step-father Pat (Luke Wilson) used to be the sidekick of famed superhero Starman (Joel McHale). With the staff now in her possession, Courtney decides to inherit Starman's legacy as Stargirl and inspire a new generation of heroes.

Originally announced in 2018 to be streaming exclusively on the DC Universe platform, it was later revealed that Stargirl would also be broadcast on The CW the day after each new episode drops. Additionally, the character will make her debut in the 2019 — 2020 Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, establishing the show within Earth-2 of that franchise's Post-Crisis multiverse.
