Arrowverse fans will be delighted as Stargirl season 2, which will soon air on The CW in the United States, will feature a crossover with the Flash series. Or almost. As revealed Entertainment Weekly, John Wesley Shipp will reprise his role as Jay Garrick on the occasion of episode 9 of the second season. Presented as a “pivotal flash-back episode”, this chapter which promises to be unavoidable will allow us to discover “the Flash of the Golden Age as a member of the Justice Society of America from Earth-2”.

After a brief appearance by Brec Bassinger, the interpreter of Courtney Whitmore, during the epilogue of the last crossover in the series of the Arrowverse, “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, the writers of Stargirl thus seem more decided than ever to integrate the DC series within this shared “post-Crisis” universe. A rather logical evolution when we know that Stargirl, which was originally a series of the DC Universe platform broadcast in the second window on the CW, will become from season 2 an original program of the American channel, like Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman, and Superman & Lois.

Jay Garrick will be the first character from the Arrowverse to make an appearance in Stargirl. The opportunity for fans of the series to find him alongside the other iconic superheroes of the Justice Society of America. Including Starman (Joel McHale), who is also expected to play an important role in the storylines unfolding in the present since the end of the first season revealed that the illustrious JSA member, presumed dead, was still alive and looking. by Pat (Luke Wilson). It remains to be seen how the writers will explain the presence of Jay Garrick in the series since the Flash of the Golden Age resides on Earth-3, while the heroes of Stargirl live on Earth-2. Unless we’re dealing with another version of the character?

Originally introduced in The Flash in 2014 as Henry Allen, Barry’s (Grant Gustin) father, John Wesley Shipp then took on the role of Jay Garrick in 7 episodes spread over the seasons. The 66-year-old comedian is also known for playing The Flash in the original 90s series, which aired for one season on CBS from 1990 to 1991. He then played Dawson’s father in the cult teen series worn by James Van Der Beek and Katie Holmes, and has also appeared more recently in a few episodes of Teen Wolf.

In France, the broadcast of the first season of Stargirl has just ended on Warner TV.
