Despite Arrow soon ending its impressive run and the various series orbiting it not getting any younger, the future of DC on The CW still looks incredibly bright. The reason I say that is because we have Batwoman waiting in the wings, a show set to be headlined by Ruby Rose as she plays the titular character tasked with protecting Gotham City following the disappearance of Batman.
As you may have heard, the pilot episode went in front of cameras not long ago, so we’re one step closer to this becoming a reality. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty ecstatic about it coming together. Already, the likes of Luke Fox (Batwing!), Jacob Kane and the villainous Alice have been added to the cast, each of which should hopefully excite those familiar with the source material.
Though it may seem like a no-brainer in some respect, Deadline now reports that Batwoman “is considered a lock” for a series order. Furthermore, the trade also says that a writing staff backing up showrunner Caroline Dries is also in place. Had the network not thought much of this project, then I doubt they’d be going through the necessary motions.

Currently, no premiere date has been given, though the prevailing theory is that the show will drop sometime in the fall if all goes according to plan. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if it debuts January 2020 and ends up taking Arrow‘s timeslot. Still, it’d be fair to assume that Kate Kane will show up at some point during the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, no matter when her solo series kicks off.
As always, it’s advised that you keep watching this space as more news pertaining to Batwoman breaks. If I were to hazard an educated guess, the first trailer will drop at San Diego Comic-Con in July. Regardless, we’ll keep you posted.
