DC FanDome Exclusive Content
During a phone call question, Brec was asked what she is hoping to see more of in Season 2. She answered that, aside from the romantic stuff, she wants to see more of the rivalry between Courtney/Stargirl and Cindy/Shiv.
The cast and crew reunited to answer fan questions and questions prepared by their host, Lea Thompson, who directed the Season 1 episode, Shiv Part One. They played games such as Things Dr. Mid-Nite Knows About Me where everyone gave five trivia points about themselves. While they weren't able to give much information on the upcoming second season, they were able to give a few teasers.
Geoff Johns is, "excited for people to see more of Grundy, he's not gone yet, alluding the monstrous Solomon Grundy's return. The last time Grundy was seen he was exiled from Blue Valley by Rick Tyler.
When asked what they would like to see in the second season, Brec Bassinger wanted to see more of the interactions between Courtney/Stargirl and Cindy/Shiv. She finds that rivalry interesting and fun. Yvette Monreal hopes to see more of Yolanda's family subplot and her character's family advance in the storyline. Especially with the fallout after Yolanda's slut-shaming incident prior to Season 1.
Geoff added that one of the more important things for him at the end of the Season 1 finale Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. Part Two was to introduce Eclipso. He teased that Eclipso's involvement and Cindy discovering the diamond is very important for the second season.
A fan asked about Dr. Mid-Nite's owl, and Geoff claimed that they will definitely be talking about Hootie at some point. Geoff also teased that the pink pen that Courtney disregards in Season 1 will get more screen time. They have plans for the pen but, "we do have so many other things to explore with these characters, and other avenues and other characters to meet and introduce, we’ll do it the best we can and we’ll do it at our own pace. But we’ll definitely be playing with things like the pink pen in Season 2".
Yvette Monreal spoke on the importance of portraying a Latina superhero on television. "It’s a known fact that Latinos are underrepresented in television. I feel like I’m one of the only Latina superheroes on TV. To be able to be Latina and be a superhero, that’s extremely important. I feel like a lot of people say this, but it’s so cool to have little kids look up to you and say, 'Hey, that could be me,' or follow their dreams. I’m so glad I’m representing the Latinx community".
Anjelika Washington spoke on the importance of playing an African-American superhero on television. "For me, as a Black woman, I’m just so grateful that we get the opportunity to do this. Growing up, I never saw a live-action Black female superhero ever, so I’m just really excited for every Black and brown girl to be able to see themselves through our cast whether it be through me as Beth or Yvette as Yolanda. I’m just really grateful and honored that we both get to share an amazing responsibility to be representation for young girls who look like us, so they know one day, 'I can also be a superhero,' and there is no limit and no ceiling on any of your dreams."
