- Stargirl was renewed ahead of its second season premiere, as The CW sought stability in their future line-ups.
- When speaking on the renewal, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “While each boasts remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, Kung Fu and DC’s Stargirl have not only treated fans to some visually stunning action and high-flying heroics, but they also both strike very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at their core, and we are so excited to see what happens next.”
- The pick-up of Stargirl, meanwhile, is part of a deal between The CW and HBO Max to co-finance the show.
