DC Universe is adding another live-action TV series to its line up with the addition of Stargirl.
Per Deadline, Geoff Johns will pen the script for the series. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will serve as executive producers alongside Johns.
Details for the sixth series on Warner Bros. DC Comics subscription service were announced during Geoff Johns Spotlight Panel at Comic-Con.
The series will focus on high school student Courtney Whitmore, who inspires an unlikely group of heroes to stop the villains of the past. The show will reimagine Stargirl and the first superhero team, the Justice Society of America. The show will premiere its 13-episode order in 2019.
“Obviously, Stargirl was the first character I created for DC. Most important, Courtney Whitmore was inspired by my sister who passed away. To have an opportunity to tell a story celebrating this superhero was literally the first thing I wanted to do because it is so personal to me. Also, a character that speaks to being young, to a legacy and to pushing forward seems so important to me nowadays.”
