As promised, Geoff Johns' panel at this summer's Comic-Con International revealed the fourth live-action series to be announced as part of Warner Bros.' upcoming DC-themed streaming service: Stargirl.
The series will feature Courtney Whitmore uncovering the secrets of her family and the Justice Society of America. It will debut in 2019 with a 13-episode Season 1, developed by Johns' production company, Mad Ghost. The hero debuted in 1999, a co-creation of Johns and Lee Moder. Stargirl's appearance and mannerisms were inspired by Johns' sister, who was among the victims of TWA Flight 800 in 1996.
Stargirl joins the previously announced Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing live-action dramas. Other original content already announced includes an animated adult-aimed Harley Quinn series and a new season of the fan-favorite Young Justice cartoon, sub-titled Outsiders.
The service will also include a robust library of classic TV and film with Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Batman Beyond and the Justice League animated series joining a hearty roster of both live action and animated favorites like Birds of Prey, Batman Begins and Constantine.
Earlier this morning the pricing options for DC Universe were released, with annual subscriptions to the service running $74.99 and $7.99 for a monthly fee. Pre-orders for annual subscriptions were made available today at DCUniverse.com with a pre-order bonus of three free months. As a special incentive for Comic-Con weekend, fans who pre-order between Thursday, July 19th and Sunday, July 22nd will be entered into a sweepstakes to attend the US premiere of Aquaman in December.
The release date for DC Universe is still set for “fall 2018,” and at launch the platform will be made available for iOS and Android devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV.
