A version of Stargirl has previously appeared in the Arrowverse, with Sarah Grey portraying the character for a guest run in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow back in its second season, as seen here:
Stargirl will follow the story of Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) who is a smart, athletic and above all else kind girl.

Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. “Borrowing” the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
