To little surprise, a new superhero series is coming to The CW’s 2019-20 schedule. The smallest network has ordered Batwoman to series. A relation of Batman’s alter ego, the show’s lead character (Ruby Rose) was introduced in November’s “Elseworlds”, the three-way crossover of the network’s Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl series.
Batwoman will be executive producer Greg Berlanti’s ninth DC Comics-related series. It joins Arrow, Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl on The CW, plus Doom Patrol, Stargirl, and Titans on the DC Universe streaming service. Berlanti has several other shows on The CW, CBS, and Netflix.
Here’s The CW’s brief description of Batwoman, as well as a teaser. Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Nicole Kang, and Rachel Skarsten are also in the cast.
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (star Ruby Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
