The CW.

In a move designed to bring DC’s Stargirl in line with The CW’s other DC programming, actor John Wesley Shipp has been announced as joining the cast of season 2 of the superhero show.

According to Entertainment Weekly, who broke the news exclusively, Shipp will play Jay Garrick in a flashback sequence to the “Golden Age” Flash in episode 9 of the new season. Shipp played several versions of The Flash on The Flash as well as Henry Allen, Barry Allen’s father.

This crossover will unite DC’s Stargirl with the other CWverse shows including The Flash, Superman & Lois, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. As established by Crisis on Infinite Earths, Stargirl lives on Earth-2. The move also comes as the series is set to begin its exclusive run on The CW after previously airing on both the network and DC Universe, so this should give Stargirl the chance to appear on other CWverse shows eventually.

There is no word yet on a premiere date for the second season, but it will be in the first half of 2021.
