DC’s Stargirl has been a joy to watch on both DC Universe and The CW. Which of its seasons reigned supreme over the others?
It’s a rare thing to find a show that you would class as “perfection”, but honestly, any other word for DC’s Stargirl doesn’t feel right. So we’ll go with “perfection” because that’s what Stargirl is.
The perfect adaptation of the DC Comics character of the same name, the show is led by Brec Bassinger in what is undoubtedly a career-defining performance from the young star, as she brings Courtney Whitmore to life with an earnest and lovable charm. And the show allows us to see Courtney grow into a hero when she is chosen by Starman’s Cosmic Staff.
Over the course of three seasons, Courtney carries on her predecessor’s legacy while carving out one of her own as she protects Blue Valley alongside the new Justice Society of America that she founded.
It’s still unbelievable that the new CW has opted against renewing its highest-quality show for a fourth season, but we can take some comfort in the fact that Stargirl delivered three outstanding seasons that are so easily rewatchable. The only downside to that is that it makes my next job very difficult.
Ahead of the series finale, let’s rank Stargirl‘s seasons from worst to best (but if we’re being honest, it’s ranking them from “perfect” to “more perfect”).
