People flock to theaters when a new DC Comics movie comes out, or they anxiously await the arrival of a new season of a DC show. Geoff Johns, the creator of Stargirl, released season 1 of the show last year and plans to release season 2 later this year. If you want to catch up to be ready for season 2, or you need a refresher, where can you watch the show? Find out where you can stream for free or without commercials below.
- The CW
After the streaming service DC Universe discontinued its platform in early 2021, The CW picked up Stargirl and renewed it for a second season. You can watch every full-length episode for free on The CW website, though you may have to watch some commercials intermittently.
- HBO Max
If you want to avoid commercials and you happen to have an HBO Max subscription, you’re in luck. When DC Universe dissolved, they made most of their content available on HBO Max, including Stargirl. You can watch every episode without commercials. If you don’t already have HBO Max, it is $14.99 per month, and it is now also home to Doom Patrol, Titans, and more.
- YouTube TV
The YouTube TV streaming service also allows you to watch Stargirl season 1 without commercials. YouTube TV also gives users the option to set a DVR to record shows, which might be ideal for people who can’t tune into season 2 on the days that new episodes are released.
If you don’t have a YouTube TV subscription, you can also purchase individual episodes for $1.99 in standard definition or $2.99 in high definition from YouTube. The entire first season in HD costs $24.99.
- Apple TV
If you’d like to own all of the episodes of Stargirl so you can download them and watch them on-the-go, Apple TV lets you purchase individual episodes for $2.99. You can also get the entire season in one transaction for $24.99, which ends up saving you quite a bit of money if you plan to purchase the entire season anyway.
After purchasing episodes, you can watch them on your computer, iPhone, iPad, or other Apple devices.
- Amazon Streaming
Amazon also offers instant downloads of episodes, and like other streaming services, each episode costs $2.99 in HD and $1.99 in SD. The entire first season on Amazon, however, costs $23.99 for both high definition and standard definition. This is currently the best deal for purchasing the show.
The Bottom Line
These are just a few of the many ways you can kick back and watch season 1 of Stargirl while you await the second season to drop. No matter how you choose to watch it, you’ll be treated to a talented cast of compelling and complex characters and a fascinating storyline.
If you just can’t get enough Stargirl, you can also check out the comic books the show is based on that were first released in 1999. The first comic Stargirl is featured in as Courtney Whitmore is Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0.
Keep your eyes peeled for Stargirl season 2, which is set to premiere this summer.
