DC Universe is enjoying a pretty big presence at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
Yesterday, the streaming service released the very first trailer for its live-action Titans series, and now they've announced that a new Stargirl series is also on the way.
Geoff Johns will write and executive produce the 13-episode series via his Mad Ghost Productions banner. The project hails from Warner Bros. Television and Greg Berlanti's studio-based Berlanti Productions, with Sarah Schechter also serving as an executive producer.
Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore, who inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The show reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series.
Johns and Lee Moder created the character, who was named after Geoff Johns' sister Courtney, who died in the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800. The character made her first appearance in July 1999's Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #1.
"This is based on my sister," Johns said of the PG-13 show. "The character is fun and optimistic." He also adds that this new series, the sixth overall since DC Universe was first announced, is also about bringing back the classic legacy of the Justice Society Of America.
With Stargirl, Greg Berlanti has padded his TV record to 15 live-action scripted series that include such hits as Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Riverdale and the upcoming Batwoman series announced earlier this week.
The DC Universe streaming service launches in the United States later this year with a price of $7.99 a month - giving fans access to plenty of DC related content ranging from movies and animated series to original programs and a massive library of comic books.
