Changes in Production Coming to Stargirl

In an interview with Lightcastpod, Meg Delacy spoke about some of the changes to how Stargirl is being made in it's second season. While the first season was fully funded by the now, dimished DC Universe, this season is being funded by The CW. With that comes a bit of a budget change. In recalling how the first season was filmed, Meg remembered that each episode took two weeks long to film. Now, production is expecting to come in at a week and a half per episode. That is actually the industry standard for most hour long episodes of television. Other superhero shows, Supergirl for example, also shoot on that schedule. Meg also went on to confirm that the second season in full has a thirteen episode order just like last season. Meg did note that a lot of the filming and schedule last season was to work together and get the cast and crew feeling like a team. Because they all have that going into this second season, doing a faster episode turn around won't be too difficult. Speaking on season two Meg stated:

We're still going to be out there [Atlanta and Dallas, Georgia] for six months, so we're going to be taking our time, but I think this season is going to be less action-packed and more so character analysis and character driven with more layers which is kinda cool, I'm excited to hop into that side.

With Geoff Johns returning as showrunner for Stargirl as well as having a full six months to do thirteen episodes, we are very excited for this season!

Quoting john29:
I expect CW will turn Stargirl into Social Girl with Staff like they turned Supergirl into Social Girl with Cape. CW just cannot help or stop itself from turning all its superhero shows into Social Justice shows to push their agendas. I respect the DC versions much more and Johns work there - except for 3 really slow/bad episodes. But Johns has also worked on CW projects that became social justice projects. Most of Geoff Johns talents will be wasted and overruled by the heavy CW social agenda. Too bad.

I will not watch any of the Stargirl shows live this year. I will record them on Tablo antennae tv (with commercial skip) and watch later so I can fast forward through the boring CW social agenda pushing scenes.

Too bad. Stargirl has/had a lot of promise, but CW will ruin it like everything else they control. At least let Geoff Johns pick the music!! They have a good gymnast/tumbler in Brec Bassinger so let her use her talents to make more good realistic fight scenes. She really embraces the full physical training aspect of being a superhero.


I think Johns has set the tone he wants for the show. I think we saw that in S1. I do think the budget will likely mean less special effects. But, I don't expect a change in overall tone. If the story telling is handled right, the a lower budget may not be that noticeable. At least it wasn't straight up cancelled like Swamp Thing.

"I think this season is going to be less action-packed and more so character analysis"

Taking the action out of comic book shows...just what The CW is becoming known for.

Sadly, this is not unexpected.

Hoping it's an exaggeration, though. We already had 3-4 episodes out of 13, last year, that had zero action. Granted, when we DID have action, it was great. But I don't want to see that ratio get worse.
