I just stumbled across this trailer today:

It's being made for the DC Universe streaming service (which also carries Titans, Doom Patrol, and the prematurely-axed Swamp Thing), but it's reportedly less dark and weird than those shows and more family-friendly, and apparently it's going to be aired on The CW as well. Indeed, the fact that the very first trailer for it is CW-branded is odd and makes me wonder about the long-term prospects of DC Universe.

Anyway, it's a pet project of Geoff Johns, who created Stargirl/Courtney Whitmore based on his late sister and is executive-producing the show. It's not an Arrowverse show; it features a different version of Stargirl and the Justice Society than we got in Legends of Tomorrow a couple of years ago (or before that in Smallville).

Yeah, it's supposed to air on The CW only one day after it "premieres" on DCUniverse... and season 2 of Doom Patrol is going to air on both DC Universe and HBO Max.  Definitely seems like Warner has some restructuring going on.  Should be interesting to see what happens once Harley Quinn gets closer to wrapping up.

It's not carried by any network in my neck of the woods. Like so many shows.

OTOH, we are going through a universe-destroying Crisis, so who knows how this Stargirl relates to the version we've seen before.

For comics history: Courtney first appeared (alongside her stepfather, piloting a mech suit) in a 15-issue series that this show looks to be adapting relatively faithfully (STRIPE is visible in the posters, so we know it'll be around). She then immediately joined the JSA (as the token teen on a team of Old Guys), and hasn't really had much of a solo career, aside from a few one-issue cameo appearances to chat with fellow teenage heroes.

(Note that previous versions of Stargirl [in [i]Smallville[/i], the Beeboverse, and even in the animated Justice League Unlimited] introduce her as an established JSA member, and the last time we see her in LoT, she's a post-JSA time traveller. We've never actually seen any version of her origin onscreen, AFAIK.)

The show has been in development on a separate network for some time, independently of what the Arrowverse producers were doing for Crisis. The pilot was filmed back in March, months before the Crisis scripts were written. So I doubt anything within the show itself has any connection to Crisis.
