Gotham City’s female vigilante is staying on the case. The CW has renewed the Batwoman TV series for a second season which will air as part of the 2020-21 season.
Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Nicole Kang, Rachel Skarsten, Dougray Scott, and Elizabeth Anweis. The show is based on the DC Comics character and revolves around Kate Kane (Rose), a strong woman who never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home to Gotham City when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father, Jacob Kane (Scott), and his security firm. They kidnap his best Crow officer, Kate’s ex-girlfriend Sophie Moore (Tandy). In order to help her family and her city, she becomes the thing that her father loathes the most — a vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Kang), and crafty Luke Fox (Johnson), Kate continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne (aka Batman), as Batwoman.
The first season of Batwoman is averaging a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.31 million viewers. Compared to The CW’s other series of the 2019-20 season, Batwoman is the network’s second-highest rated series in both categories.
The first season of Batwoman resumes on Sunday, January 19th. Season two is expected to begin airing in Fall 2020.
