Stargirl Season 4 Renewed or Cancelled ?
Among the many unexpected that returned to HBO in 2020, Stargirl caught many viewers by shock. The CW Network then picked this up and kept a sizable viewership interested through a combination of action, drama, and suspense. Those who have seen the entire season may be curious as to whether or not the show will continue. So far, we have determined:
As of this writing, Stargirl has not been picked up for a fourth season. It’s a difficult pill to swallow, considering the CW Network “saved” the show by snatching it away from HBO. So, why did they decide to scrap it?
In general, these networks consider a variety of factors, such as the show’s initial ratings and its subsequent viewership decline, before deciding whether or not to renew a certain series. A show’s fate (cancellation or renewal) may be decided swiftly for some shows, while for others, it may take several months.
In particular, this is puzzling given that the ratings for Stargirl on TVSeriesFinale suggest the show has a substantial audience. This season’s premiere drew in 0.501 million people, and while the show has since lost some of those viewers, it still maintains a very engaged and attentive following with an average of about 0.489 million.
There are compelling reasons to renew Stargirl, but it appears that the show’s run has come to an end unless it is picked up by another network.
According to a statement released by executive producer Geoff Johns, who modelled Courtney Whitmore after his late sister, “Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons.
He said, “We wrote with the knowledge that this could be the final season, and I think we created the best season of Stargirl to date, with perfect creative closure, in light of the impending changes at the network.”
Unfortunately, DC’s Stargirl will cease after three seasons; there will be no season 4. The CW’s decision raises the question of why it was made.
To what end is DC’s Stargirl being cancelled?
Prematurely cancelling Stargirl has nothing to do with the show’s popularity or ratings. Despite the network’s utter absence of promotion for the show’s third season, it has remained one of the network’s most reliable performers.
Sadly, Stargirl isn’t the only show to be cancelled as a result of the sale of The CW network and the new owners’ attempts to revamp the network. Nexstar intends to create low-cost, original content targeted at the 58-year-old demographic they feel makes up The CW’s core audience. That makes shows like Stargirl (which is aimed at teenagers and expensive to make) a bad fit for their current image. According to Deadline, Nexstar plans to retool the network to produce series (including unscripted) that target older viewers.
There will be no more episodes of Stargirl on The CW after Season 3. The series finale will broadcast on December 7. It is ironic that the show’s cancellation would occur after Nexstar Media Group’s purchase of the network was finalised.
