Stargirl Season 2 - John Wesley Shipp as the Flash (Jay Garrick)

In the late evening of EW he confirmed that John Wesley Shipp will appear as a guest star in Stargirl Season 2 returning to play again the role of Jay Garrick or the original Flash of the Golden Age.

To be precise, Shipp will play Jay Garrick in episode 9 of the second season in which, in an analysis sequence, it will be confirmed that Flash is the sprinter of Earth-2's Justice Society of America. This brief description of the actor's role confirms the idea not only that Stargirl was ideally incorporated into the Arrowverse but also that her events actually take place on a parallel Earth compared to the other series The Flash, Superman & Lois, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Supergirl, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

John Wesley Shipp, veteran of the Arrowverse but not only

John Wesley Shipp is a name well known to DC fans. In the Arrowverse he played both Henry Allen, Barry's father, and Jay Garrick himself but above all he was the Barry Allen of the TV series The Flash of the 90s. The latter role has been reprized on multiple occasions during the Arrowverse's annual crossovers including the latest Crisis on Infinite Earths.

For everyone else, Shipp's face is associated with that of Dawson's dad in Dawson's Creek.

Stargirl Season 2 - where did we stay?

Stargirl's first season ended with the defeat of the Injustice Society of America. The renewed Justice Society of America, consisting of Courtney / Stargirl, Yolanda / Wildcat (Yvette Monreal), Beth / Dr. Mid-Nite (Anjelika Washington), Rick / Hourman (Cameron Gellman) and Pat / S.T.R.I.P.E. (Luke Wilson), had in fact managed to stop his plan that would lead to the brainwashing of the whole United States. In the finale, however, we had also seen Cindy (Meg DeLacy) recover a gem inside which the evil entity known as Eclipso should reside who will be played in Stargirl Season 2 by Nick Tarabay.

At the end of the first season we had also witnessed to the return of Shade (the Shadow in Italian) and above all of Sylvester Pemberton / Starman (Joel McHale) considered dead until that moment.
