The CW does not shy away when it comes to shows about superheroes. After releasing ‘Arrow’, the channel has displayed a knack for bringing DC Comics heroes on-screen in an entertaining, family-friendly manner. ‘Stargirl’ is the latest title from the channel, which is originally a DC Universe offering. And this is the first time that the two platforms have collaborated to deliver one fantastic series. ‘Stargirl’ premiered with its first episode this week and it mostly serves as an introduction to the eponymous character. We learn about her history and her ancestry. We also get an idea of what her role will be in the future. Well, we will come to the complete details of the first episode in our recap section. But before that, let’s get an idea about the release date and streaming details of the next episode.
