There’s going to be a lot less DC TV on a weekly basis it seems as The CW has opted to end Stargirl with season 3.

The CW announced on Monday that Stargirl will be ending with season 3. The series finale is scheduled to air on Dec. 7.

Geoff Johns, series creator and executive producer, said of the news, “Stargirl has always held a special place in my heart for many reasons. With all the brewing changes at the network, we were aware this was possibly the last season, so we wrote with that in mind and have delivered what I believe to be the best season of Stargirl yet, with complete creative closure. The cast and crew are extraordinary, and I’d like to thank them for helping me bring this series to life. Brec embodied Courtney in every way possible — with grace, strength and humor — exceeding my wildest expectations. I am grateful to WBTV and The CW for giving us a home to tell this story and to honor my beloved late sister, and I’m beyond thankful to the press and fans who have always championed us for three amazing seasons. Most series never get this far. We couldn’t be more proud of our show and the fan community it’s built!”

Series star Brec Bassinger added, “Getting to play Stargirl and be a part of the DC Universe has been the greatest honor, and I am so grateful for every moment of it. I would like to thank our fearless leader Geoff Johns, along with WBTV, The CW, the cast and crew of Stargirl, and of course, the fans. Thank you. This show will forever live in my heart.”

The CW is going through some major changes at the moment as the network was purchased by Nexstar, the largest owner of its affiliates. The Flash is currently filming its final season, as is Riverdale. It was also announced last week that Nancy Drew will end with season 4.
