Stargirl is finally doing a full crossover with he CWVerse, and it’s all thanks to John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Shipp will be speeding into episode nine of Stargirl season 2 as the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. Up until the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, Stargirl didn’t exist in the same universe as the rest of the CW shows, so this is a big change for the series.
Shipp’s appearance will be part of “a pivotal flashback episode,” so it sounds as though he won’t be interacting with Courtney/Stargirl (Brec Bassinger) and her current JSA team.
Shipp played Barry Allen/The Flash in the short-lived The Flash series on CBS in 1990. He joined the 2014 The Flash series from the beginning playing Barry’s father, Henry Allen. He later transitioned to also playing Jay Garrick.
Stargirl season 2 is currently scheduled to debut on The CW on April 1, 2021, and will stream for free on The CW app the following day.
