Ruby Rose was cast as Kate the same year, with Batwoman receiving a series order in 2019. Shortly after the conclusion of the first season, Rose exited the series and Javicia Leslie was cast as Ryan, an original character created to succeed Kate.

The series premiered on October 6, 2019, and its first season concluded on May 17, 2020, after 20 episodes. The second season premiered on January 17, 2021, and the third season premiered on October 13, 2021.

PlotEdit

The series follows Kate Kane and Ryan Wilder overcoming their demons by becoming vigilantes and fighting crime in Gotham City.

In the first season, following the disappearance of Gotham City-based vigilante Batman,[a] Kate discovers that her cousin Bruce Wayne was Batman and decides to follow in his footsteps by becoming her own vigilante using her prior military skills, coined "Batwoman" by the media, with the help of tech-expert and former Wayne Enterprises employee Luke Fox, and her stepsister Mary Hamilton, who eventually discovers Kate is Batwoman. Meanwhile, Kate's father Jacob had formed a security firm known as the Crows during Batman's absence and has come into conflict with the Wonderland Gang, lead by the psychotic serial killer Alice all while Batwoman attempts to convince the Crows she is on their side of the war as they won't accept help from masked vigilantes. Kate deduces that Alice is her fraternal twin sister Beth, who was presumed dead following a car accident.

In the second season, following Kate Kane's supposed death from a plane crash, homeless ex-con Ryan Wilder finds the bat-suit from the plane wreckage and takes up the mantle of Batwoman to avenge her mother's death. Meanwhile, Alice explores more of her past which she has mysterious connections with a man named Ocean and a mysterious enemy known as Safiyah Sohail – the woman who had Enigma erase those memories for unknown reasons; In addition, the Crows face up against a new drug dealing organization known as the False Face Society led by Black Mask. Unbeknownst to everyone, Black Mask has Kate hostage after the False Face Society raided her airplane and had Enigma brainwash her to be his daughter Circe Sionis who perished the day when Alice caused a mass breakout at Arkham Asylum. In addition, Black Mask later has Jacob arrested by the police officers on his side for withholding the information that Alice is Beth Kane where Jacob cuts a deal that gets him placed in a prison in Metropolis while "Circe" gains Jacob and Mary's trust in order to steal some items belonging to Batman's enemies. When Alice defeats Black Mask and helps Ryan to get the Circe personality out of Kate, she is arrested by the police and remanded to Arkham Asylum with Black Mask. With Kate back to normal, she leaves Gotham to go visit Supergirl and her father before going to look for Bruce. While visiting Alice, Ryan learns that her biological mother is still alive. As for the stolen items that ended up in the river during the conflict, they wash up on shore as a container of one of Poison Ivy's plants breaks open.

In the third season, Ryan and Luke begin the hunt for the missing Batman villain trophies like one of Poison Ivy's plants, Mad Hatter's hat, Killer Croc's tooth, and Mr. Freeze's liquid nitrogen where it falls into the hands of different people. Due to some intimidation from former Gotham City Police Department member Renee Montoya, Ryan has no choice but to have Alice as a consultant when looking for the missing trophies. In addition, Ryan finds out that her biological mother is Jeturian Industries' CEO Jada Jet as she also meets her half-brother Marquis, who has a dark past that revolved around a bus that was hijacked by Joker when he was young. Mary gets possessed by Poison Ivy's plant and acts as her proxy.

ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

In May 2018, The CW president Mark Pedowitz and Arrow lead Stephen Amell announced at The CW's upfront presentation that Batwoman would be introduced in the Arrowverse series' 2018 crossover, "Elseworlds", which aired in December 2018, fighting alongside the other Arrowverse heroes, with Gotham City also appearing.[61][62] In July 2018, it was reported that The CW was planning to develop a series around the character, to air in 2019 if picked up. The series, said to only be a "script-development deal", was written by Caroline Dries, who would also serve as an executive producer with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, and the character's co-creator Geoff Johns. The series would be produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.[2] The following month, Pedowitz noted the pilot would be completed "for mid-season".[63]

In December 2018, Dries submitted a "strong" script for a potential pilot episode, according to Nellie Andreeva of Deadline Hollywood.[64] That led to the series receiving a pilot order from The CW the next month, to be considered for a series order in the 2019–20 television season.[65][64][66] As of April 2019, the series was considered "a lock" at The CW, and reportedly had a writing staff in place.[67] On May 7, 2019, The CW ordered the show to series.[68] On October 25, 2019, the series was picked up for a full season of 22 episodes.[69] On January 7, 2020, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on January 17, 2021.[70][71] On February 3, 2021, The CW renewed the series for a third season which premiered on October 13, 2021.[72][73]

CastingEdit

Casting for Kate Kane was expected to begin after the announcement of the intended series in May 2018,[74] with the intention of casting an out lesbian actress.[75] In August, Ruby Rose was cast as Kate Kane / Batwoman.[3] In late January 2019, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, and Nicole Kang were cast in the series regular roles as Sophie Moore, Luke Fox, and Mary Hamilton, respectively.[5] This was followed shortly by the casting of Rachel Skarsten as Alice,[4] Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane,[8] and Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane.[7]

The casting of Rose as Batwoman was met by backlash on social media and received intense criticism.[76][77] DC Comics, which owns the rights to the longtime comic book superheroine Batwoman, reintroduced the character in 2006 as a lesbian of Jewish descent. Some online reactions attacked Rose for not being Jewish, while the main focus of the criticism was the assertion that the fact she identifies as gender fluid made her "not gay enough."[77] Rose left Twitter and deactivated public commenting on her Instagram account following the backlash.[76]

In July 2021, Robin Givens, Victoria Cartagena, and Nick Creegan were cast as new series regulars for the third season.[11][10][12] In August 2021, Bridget Regan was cast in the recurring role of Poison Ivy for the third season.[78]

Recasting of BatwomanEdit

Following the departure of series lead Ruby Rose (left), Javicia Leslie (right) was cast as a new Batwoman for the second season.

In May 2020, Rose announced she would be leaving the series ahead of its second season;[79] it was mutually decided between Rose, the studio, and the network for her to leave.[80][81] The producers reaffirmed their commitment to the series and finding a new actress who is part of the LGBTQ community to lead future seasons.[79] No reason was given at the time for Rose's departure.[79] Rose later called being the lead of a series "taxing" and stated her back surgery following an on-set accident in 2019 was a contributing factor in deciding to leave, saying it was "time for me to take a break to fully heal and then return" to acting. Spending time in isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic also allowed Rose "to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do," which allowed her "a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things" with the producers.[82]

The following month, a casting notice for a new character named Ryan Wilder was revealed, indicating the series was looking to replace Kane as Batwoman.[83][84] Dries defended the decision to introduce a new character as Batwoman, asserting that the series would continue to "respect everything that Ruby put into the Kate Kane character."[85] She also revealed Kane would not be killed, and her disappearance would be a key storyline during season two.[86]

Matt Webb Mitovitch at TVLine and Jill Pantozzi of io9 both felt replacing Kane as Batwoman would be a detriment to the series. Mitovitch felt it would "create more problems than it solves", saying it would take away from the established character dynamics (namely the "central" one between Kate and Alice) and the various plot threads waiting to be resolved from the end of the first season. He added: "a simple if momentarily awkward recast would have kept all established storylines and dynamics intact; Season 2 could then pick up where the solid Season 1 left off. Instead, loyal viewers will be asked to re-invest in something that is significantly new, while also possibly giving up some of the things they liked most about the show."[87] Pantozzi felt the series could have approached the casting of a new lead actor more creatively, given the series exists in "a universe of time travel, doppelgängers, and literal face-swapping". She concluded, "if they are truly doing away with the Kate character it feels like a bizarre move. Fans could much easier come to terms with a simple replacement actress, than having to go through a convoluted story of why a random lesbian has taken up the cowl so soon after Kate did. ... It seems like a lot of explaining to do when there's a much easier option."[88] Conversely, Collider's Liz Shannon Miller felt a new character was "the right call" and "a big swing" for the series. Miller pointed to the "long-established precedent" in the comics of new characters taking over mantles from others. Like Mitovitch, Miller questioned what the new character would mean for the series' supporting cast, since their connections to Kate were "their primary reason for being a part of the show's storyline". She also hoped "Ryan Wilder" was a placeholder name, "because the trend of naming strong female characters with traditionally male names has just gotten tired at this point".[89]

In early July 2020, Javicia Leslie was cast as Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman.[9] Rose was supportive of Leslie's casting.[90][82] Wallis Day was later cast as Kate Kane where it was claimed that she surgically altered her appearance.[1] Rose, commenting on an Instagram tribute to her time in the role, stated that she was "stoked" about Day's casting.[91]

In an interview with ComicBookMovie.com when asked if she would reprise Kate at some point, Rose said, "I would totally do it. I don't think it would serve the story because I think building the new Batwoman is more important than going back too far into Kate Kane, but of course I would." Then she added on "I've watched a couple of episodes, and I think how they're handling it is beautiful. I think it's [Ryan Wilder's] time to shine."[92] However, in later in October 2021, after Rose spoke out about alleged abuse and neglect on set, she walked back on the statement, saying she would not return for "any amount of money nor if there were a gun to my head".[93]

FilmingEdit

Production on the pilot episode began on March 4 and concluded on March 25, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia.[94][95] Additional filming took place in Chicago, Illinois.[96] Filming for the rest of the season began on July 4 and was set to conclude in mid-2020.[97] On March 12, 2020, Warner Bros. Television shut down production on the series due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[98] Filming for the second season began on September 3, 2020,[99] and concluded on May 10, 2021.[100] Filming for the third season began on July 19, 2021, and is scheduled to conclude on December 20, 2021.[101]

ControversyEdit

In 2019, former show lead Ruby Rose suffered an injury during stunt work on Batwoman. She spoke about the experience being close to "severing my spinal chord (sic). I was in chronic pain and yet couldn't feel my arms". She required emergency surgery.[102] In 2020, Amanda Smith, a production assistant working on the show, was paralyzed following a bucket lift being lowered on to her head. Warner Bros television stated they cooperated with an investigation into onset safety.[103]

In October 2021, Rose spoke out on the working conditions of her time on Batwoman. She alleged that after her spine injury, she was forced back to work with the implications from studio executives being that the entire crew would lose their jobs if she did not. She also stated that production was rushed and corners cut during the COVID-19 pandemic and that there were many stuntpersons' injuries on-set amongst her own, including one which she stipulated cast and crew should have gotten therapy afterward.[93][104] Rose spoke out against co-stars Dougray Scott and Camrus Johnson's behavior on-set, calling the former abusive. Scott responded that these allegations are "entirely made-up,"[105] while Johnson stated Rose was fired and he felt "we have a lot of great souls working on this show".[106]

In a statement, Warner Brothers Television dismissed the allegations by Rose and said that her contract was not picked up for season two because of multiple complaints about her workplace behavior.[107] This was expanded on when a production assistant, Alexander J. Baxter, came forward to confirm Rose had been fired from the show for alleged 'dictator'-like behaviour.[108] However, Rose disputed these claims and produced emails, texts and other evidence on her concerns with the working conditions and ethics on set.[109]
