Batwoman originally released in October 2019. When it hit the screens, the fans were excited to see a new character in the arrowverse coming on the screen. The show did well and was originally set to release 22 episodes. But, due to the worldwide halt on the tv and film industry, the series had to cut down to 20 episodes.
It was then announced by CW that this show will be releasing its season 2 in January 2021. Then, we heard another news and that was Ruby Rose quit Batwoman. Now, the question is if Ruby Rose quit the show who will play the lead character? Is it still happening? Let’s dive right into the details of this show and get to know more about it.
Who is in Batwoman season 2? Cast:
Since Ruby has quit the show, we will be seeing another cast for batwoman. The show is still happening, but the recast has not been done yet. There is a tough competition and in a Twitter post Jade Tailor mentioned that she would be very much interested in doing the show. However, there is no confirmation on who will be playing the main lead yet.
So, we will have to wait for the official announcement. Apart from Ruby Rose, we will be seeing Rachel Skarsten as Beth Kane, Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore, Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton, and Dougray Scott as Colonel Jacob Kane back in the show.
Ruby Rose mentioned that she has left the show after thinking a lot about it and is nothing but grateful for this opportunity. Why she left the show hasn’t been specified yet, but it was noted that she suffered a severe injury while filming the first season which dislocated her disc. It was also seen that the injuries needed surgical correction.
She has suffered from back issues for a long time. So, this could be one of the reasons while looking at her safety as the role has a lot of physical fighting scenes. Now, she will be seen playing an ex-marine officer in Doorman. She was also animated in Cranston Academy: Monster Zone. (check: The Last Narc Season 2.)
What will happen in Batwoman season 2? Plot:
By the end of the first installment, we saw how Alice was focused on acquiring the Kryptonite, the one thing that can kill Superman. She also planned on killing Batwoman from the Meteor Rock. So, mostly the show will pick up from there. We will also see some developments in the love interest of the characters.
There will be a love triangle between Luke, Mary, and a third undisclosed character. It will be exciting to see these complications along with the battle that Batwoman fights. Tommy Elliot aka the villainous Hush was transformed into Bruce Wayne. Alice did it to acquire Kryptonite from the billionaire’s company.
In the S01 finale, we got to know that Safiyah Sohail is hunting Julia Pennyworth. Sohail has already killed the Wonderland Gang of Alice. There have been several hints in the first installment that she will arrive in Gotham city at some point in time. So, she could be featured as the big bad in season two.
We might also get to see the real Batman/Bruce Wayne at some point in the second installment.
Is there any season 2 trailer for Batwoman?
The trailer of the second season is not out yet, because the productions for the same have not begun. We will update you as soon as there is any progress. However we may see the trailer towards the end of the year if everything goes well. (check: Freeform Renews Motherland: Fort Salem for Season 2.)
When will Batwoman season 2 release (date)? Premiere:
The recorded number for its freshman installment says that it debuted to 1.86 million viewers. Since the first episode, it continued to be one of the most-watched shows of The CW. So, getting a renewal wasn’t that tough as well as not a surprise. The first installment of Batwoman won’t come to HBO Max until December 2020.
Batwoman Season 2 is set to release on screens in January 2021 as of now. There have been no more delays as of now on the date. Hopefully if the production begins soon enough we will see this series on air by January 2021. The majority of The CW shows are not returning until January 2021. It includes The Flash, Riverdale, and All American.
