Stargirl's latest season 2 teaser has given us an update as to when the DC show will return.

In a new super-short promo, The CW confirmed that Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore will be back fighting crime in just a matter of months, as the new episodes gear up to premiere this summer.

Produced by Arrowverse bosses Geoff Johns – who created Stargirl back in the 1990s – and Greg Berlanti, the series follows high school student Courtney who takes over from Justice Society of America member Starman after he dies.

Wielding the Cosmic staff, she enlists her robot-operating stepfather Pat (Luke Wilson) and some of her peers to help her fight crime, too, including Yolanda Montez (Yvette Monreal), who becomes Wildcat, Rick Tyler (Cameron Gellman), who adopts the mantle of Hourman and Beth Chapel (Anjelika Washington), who goes by the name 'Doctor Mid-Nite'.

"It's such a different, darker, scarier threat because the threat is... Cindy is one thing, and she's got the Black Diamond and were obviously going to explore that," Johns explained to ComicBook and other press at New York Comic-Con last year.

"But the thing inside is, this entity that's trapped, this ancient being that feeds off humanity's own sins and grief and fear and darkness is trapped in this Black Diamond and has been there for a long, long time and is aching to do what he does and feed off the darkness within humanity," he added.

Stargirl season 1 is available to watch on DC Universe and The CW in the US.
