Stargirl was canceled in its third season, with the CW scrapping the idea for a fourth season. DC’s production is one of the most praised by critics and the public.
Even if it doesn’t have a new season, the show’s main star revealed that the series will feature alternate endings in its third season.
“Stargirl tells the story of Courtney Whitmore, a high school student forced to move to a new town after her mother remarries,” reads the synopsis.
“She just didn’t expect that her stepfather, Pat Dugan, used to be Stripesy, the hero Starman’s right-hand man. Armed with her magic staff, she will end up inspiring a new generation of unlikely heroes.”
Created by Geoff Johns, also creator of the character in the comics, the cast of the series includes Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson, Joel McHale, Yvette Monreal, Cameron Gellman, among others.
Cast recorded two alternate endings

According to Bassinger, the cast recorded two alternative endings, thought by Geoff Johns, creator of the series. One of the endings is the conclusion of the series, leaving no doors open for the future.
The actress still comments that the idea of the fourth season was insane and would have been epic to see on screen, but it will not happen.
“It will make people sad because the idea for season four was insane. Like, it would have been epic. And I really believe that’s why it took us so long to officially receive the cancellation news,” she said. “Geoff Johns came up with such a wonderful idea… But it wasn’t meant to be.”
Season 2 united heroes and villains against Eclipso, and Stargirl saw that she could help villains be better people.
Year 3 hovers around this idea of fixing enemies, but that ends up costing the Sportsmaster and Tigress dearly. Both are frozen and killed by Frost, who has returned from the dead.
Jordan Makhent was the villain of the first season, being supported by the Injustice Society. His return is surprising, since the arc of Geada Jr, his son, turned him into an opponent for the heroes.
With fans reeling from Sportsmaster and Tigra’s deaths, and Frost’s reveal, Episode 11 will explain how he returned.
At the end of episode nine, fans got to see the introduction of Ultra-Humanite, with everyone thinking that he might be the one watching over everyone in Blue Valley.
However, the return of Geada also suggests that he might be watching over everyone. The Crocks were killed in the lair of the character who watches the heroes and villains in Blue Valley.
The surprise of many is to see that Geada would be the one who implanted the cameras around the city, and has been watching his enemies closely. The end of episode 10 ends up leaving this implied.
Jordan is more likely to be thought of as the big villain of season three. While nothing has been confirmed as to who the beholder would be, as the presence of Ultra-Humanite puts the heroes on high alert, it’s more possible that Frost is the one behind it all.
The Stargirl series is available on HBO Max🇧🇷
