As more and more genre projects run into delays caused by the ongoing pandemic that’s sweeping the globe, two DC TV projects are the offerings to be affected by COVID-19.
First up, the series premiere of Stargirl has been pushed back by DC Universe and The CW. That Brec Bassinger-headlined new show was due to first air on the DC Universe streaming service before airing a day later on The CW. Now, Stargirl has been delayed by a week – meaning that DC Universe will stream the series premiere on Monday, May 18th and The CW will follow suit the very next day.
Elsewhere, The Flash has ran into a delay that will affect the show’s sixth season finale. Coronavirus fears have seen production halted on The CW’s Scarlet Speedster series, and so the aforementioned season finale won’t air as initially planned. The Flash has supposedly got enough new episodes already in the can to take the show through until May 19th. The season finale will air at a later date in the year.
Stargirl and The Flash join the likes of The Walking Dead and Supernatural in being affected by the chaos currently engulfing the world.
