CW’s StarGirl season 2 will further explore the legacy of the Justice Society and integrate the Stargirl series in to the larger Arrowverse multiverse first introduced in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
EW has exclusively learned that John Wesley Shipp will guest-star in season 2 of the CW’s high-school superhero drama. Shipp will appear in episode 9, reprising his role as old-school speedster Jay Garrick from The Flash.
According to the official description, Jay Garrick plays a role “in a pivotal flashback episode” that establishes “the Golden Age Flash as a member of Earth-2’s Justice Society of America.” Per the CW, this miniature crossover will “officially bring Stargirl [Brec Bassinger] into CW’s post-Crisis CWverse alongside The Flash, Superman & Lois, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.”
This casting helps reinforce Stargirl‘s place in the greater post-Crisis multiverse. This is also the first time a character from the Arrowverse will crossover on Stargirl.
Shipp originally played the Scarlet Speedster on the 1990 TV series The Flash. His tenure in the Arrowverse began with playing Henry Allen, father of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), but he has played several different versions of the Flash since then, with appearances on Supergirland Arrow. Shipp is also known for roles on Dawson’s Creek and Teen Wolf.
