The CW is giving “DC’s Stargirl” a second season.

The series, shot in metro Atlanta, originally debuted on the DC Universe streaming service but will now be given exclusive access to the CW.

“DC’s Stargirl” debuted May 18 on the CW and has averaged about 1 million overnight viewers and presumably more via streaming.

The series has received positive ratings, receiving a 91 recent on RottenTomatoes among critics and 82 percent from users.

In the series, Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska, from Los Angeles with her mom (Amy Smart) and stepdad (Luke Wilson).

She finds a “cosmic staff” that turns her into Stargirl. She enlists her classmates to fight the baddies of the Injustice Society of America.

The show fits right in with others on the CW including “Flash” and “Arrow.”

As for DC Universe, this appears to be a move away from original scripted series, similar to what YouTube has done.

DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol,” also shot in metro Atlanta, is now shared by HBO Max.
