Earlier this week it was announced that Nickelodeon’s “Bella & the Bulldogs” star Brec Bassinger will play the title role in the DC Universe series “Stargirl”.
Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past and present.
The character was the first created by famed comic writer Geoff Johns in 1999. He named the character after his sister, Courtney, who died in the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800.
Geoff Johns has committed to pen the first episode in the 13-episode series.
There’s no set release date yet for Stargirl.
