ComicBookResources.com laid out the synopsis of the show as released by the CW.
From original creator and comic book writer Geoff Johns (executive producer of Titans, Arrow, Batwoman, and The Flash), STARGIRL follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger, School of Rock, The Goldbergs) as she moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska after her mother remarries Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson, Old School, Idiocracy) and inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The live-action superhero drama reimagines the 1999 Stargirl comics and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. STARGIRL is lovingly inspired by Johns’ late sister, who was killed in a plane accident.
