Stargirl Season 3 Recasts Jim Gaffigan’s Thunderbolt With Seth Green

Stargirl season 3 will recast Thunderbolt, with the role being transferred from Jim Gaffigan to Seth Green. Based on DC comics, the CW show created by Geoff Johns follows a high school student, Courtney Whitmore, who discovers a magical staff. After the staff gives her special powers, Courtney inspires a generation of young superheroes called the Justice Society of America (JSA) who fight against the Injustice Society of America (ISA). Courtney is played by Brec Bassinger, with other main cast members including Yvette Monreal as Yolanda Martinez, and Anjelika Washington as Beth Chapel, two other members of the JSA. 

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Thunderbolt, played by stand-up comic Gaffigan, is a genie-like figure who works for Mike Dugan (Trae Romano), Courtney’s stepbrother. Thunderbolt has significant powers, including granting wishes — as long as they’re extremely specific — as well as electrokinesis. He has the physical form of a pink mass of electricity. While he is an important part of the show, Thunderbolt is a minor Stargirl character, as he has only appeared in two episodes so far. Stargirl season 2, episode 16 introduced the character when Mike unknowingly summoned Thunderbolt, who then helped Mike confront his bullies. In season 2, episode 26, Thunderbolt transforms an ISA member Eclipso into a slice of toast.

According to TVLine, Gaffigan is being replaced by Green for Stargirl season 3. Green is a well-known voice actor who has worked on Family Guy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. In addition to his acting work, Green is also known for creating Robot Chicken. TVLine didn’t specify the reason for the recasting decision. Since Thunderbolt is an animated pink genie, his physical appearance in Stargirl won’t change, but there is sure to be a shift in what the character’s voice sounds like.

Many viewers have been wondering why this Stargirl recasting decision was made. This isn’t the first time that a Stargirl actor has been replaced. Earlier in the show, the role of Dr. Mid-Nite was switched from being portrayed by Henry Thomas to Alex Collins. While it will be only Thunderbolt’s voice changing, it will be interesting to see whether Green will bring an entirely different performance to the role, or whether he will try to imitate Gaffigan’s style of voice acting. Fans will also have to wait and see whether the Stargirl writers decide to explicitly explain why Thunderbolt suddenly sounds so different, or whether the change will simply be ignored. 

Stargirl season 2 ended unexpectedly, with the JSA actually teaming up with some members of the ISA. Given this, season 3 will likely have even higher stakes and complicated emotional questions. Stargirl season 3 just wrapped filming in March of this year, but won’t be released until November. It’s possible that in the coming months, the Stargirl team will release more information about the reason for Thunderbolt’s recasting, and perhaps some season 3 story details that involve Green’s new iteration, too. In the meantime, audiences should stay tuned for more details about Stargirl season 3.
