The CW’s Arrowverse series Batwoman has been officially cancelled after three seasons on the air.
For quite some time, the DC Comics Universe as seen on television has been dominated by The CW’s Arrowverse, which began with Arrow (2012-2020), and was followed by The Flash (2014-present). The universe continued to expand with Supergirl (2015-2021), Legends of Tomorrow (2016-present), Black Lightning (2018-2021), Batwoman (2019-2022), and Superman and Lois (2021-present). Now, another show has officially been cancelled.
After three seasons on the air, Batwoman will not be renewed for a fourth season by The CW. Showrunner Caroline Dries confirmed the news on her official Twitter profile, in which she expressed her disappointment but also gratitude for working on 51 episodes of the series:
Actress Ruby Rose was the original titular lead in Batwoman, portraying the Kate Kane version of the character. She departed the role prior to Season 2, with actress Javica Leslie stepping in as the new titular heroine, playing Ryan Wilder. What ended up being the final episode of the series aired last month on March 2, 2022.
Here is the synopsis for the third season finale of The CW’s Batwoman:
“SEASON FINALE – In the explosive season three finale, Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) and a panicked Bat Team (Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson) must race against the clock as Marquis’s (Nick Creegan) nefarious plan balloons into something Gotham would never have suspected…and won’t see coming. Joining forces with Jada (Robin Givens), Ryan, Mary, Luke and Sophie (Meagan Tandy) must call on every skillset they possess to save the city. As more about Marquis’s shocking, twisted past unravels, a final stand-off between brother and sister puts Ryan’s life – and new love – on the line. And as Alice (Rachel Skarsten) reaches her breaking point, an empathetic Mary makes another appeal on behalf of her sister for the Joker’s buzzer, but everyone wonders – is Alice beyond saving? Holly Dale directed the episode written by Nancy Kiu & Caroline Dries.”
The CW series stars Javicia Leslie, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Victoria Cartagena, Robin Givens, and Nick Creegan.
