Stargirl Season 2 Spoiler-Free Review

Greetings Stargirl Fans! We are only 21 days away from season 2 of Stargirl and we couldn't be more excited! Today we have the very special privilege to share with you our spoiler-free review of Stargirl's second season debut! We are going to keep things as general as possible adding some specific details that shouldn't spoil anything for you. Additionally, we should note that some of these opinions were formed over watching the first six episodes of the season. No spoilers will be mentioned but if you want to go into season 2 without any heads up on the show, you should exit here, follow us on Twitter and circle back August 10th at 8pm on The CW!

Danger Level in Season 2

The first major difference this season vs. last season is the scale of the threat. Brec Bassinger herself noted on Stargirl Aftershow that this season feels more dark and with Eclipso and Shade being on the villain roster, we completely concur. As far as villains on DC-related television, Icicle and Brainwave made a much more severe point with their brutalness. But even with their severity, they were misguided do-gooders. They were doing bad things but thought it was for the greater good. That is NOT true this season! This time The JSA is going up against pure evil!

Timeline for The Whitmore-Dugan Family

If you remember in season 1, we left the Whitmore-Dugan family during the holiday season. Season 2 picks up at the conclusion of Courtney's sophomore year landing the Whitmore-Dugan family in Blue Valley for about 9 months so far. This season also takes on the "Summer School" subtitle and there is a very good reason for it! While Courtney has found her place as Stargirl, she hasn't mastered the balance between being Courtney Whitmore sophomore at Blue Valley High and Stargirl, superhero leader of the Justice Society of America. Because of that Courtney fails a couple of classes which forces her enrollment into summer classes.

The New Recruits

Ever since we reported that Ysa Penarejo would be playing Jade, there has been a growing excitement around a live action television Green Lantern! Jade took a center position in the season 2 trailer and even announced that she was the daughter of the Green Lantern! Fans may also remember that Alkoya Brunson was cast to play Jakeem Thunder and Jim Gaffigan will voice the pink genie Thunderbolt! While we will get to see these heroes in action don't expect them to be with Stargirl, Wildcat, Hourman and Dr. Midnite right away. There is a bigger story there!

Shade and Eclipso

Eclipso certainly stood out as the big bad this season with Nick Tarabay's poster all but cementing him as the final boss, but Shade did make an appearance in the finale of season 1 and his goals remain hidden. Just what exactly brings Shade back to the old ISA headquarters isn't known but he'll have a few run-ins with Courtney's JSA. Don't forget Cindy Burman is still out there as well! Those aren't the only villains that we'll see this season so keep an eye out for more!

The Original JSA

Stargirl opened with a massive battle between The JSA and The ISA where the JSA lost spectacularly! That said, not all was lost that night. Geoff Johns isn't done telling some of the original JSA stories and there are a few JSA members from the original team you can expect to see. We'll note that we broke the story on Ethan Embry playing the original Johnny Thunder, but he's not alone, and we aren't just talking about Joel McHale's Sylvester Pemberton.
