Ruby Rose is no longer Batwoman!!! Batwoman has just wrapped its first season on the CW but who will play the main role next season? Ruby Rose who played Kate Kane/Batwoman has stepped down from the show as announced Tuesday. The series has been approved for a second season which will come out in January of 2021.
Rose said in a statement that the decision to leave Batwoman was not one that she made lightly.
“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” Rose said in a statement “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew, and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles.”
“I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created,” she continued. “Thank you, Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful.”
Rose first took the role in 2018 as Batwoman for the Arrowverse’s “Elseworlds” crossover event! Right after that.
Berlanti Productions and WBTV thanked Rose and made a statement saying they are “firmly committed” to the show’s second season.
“Warner Bros. Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best,” the two companies said. “The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we along with the show’s talented creative team look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months.”
What did you think about the first season of Batwoman? If you watch the show will you continue to watch without Rose?
