Batwoman star Ruby Rose recently opened up about exiting the Arrowverse show and leaving her role as Kate Kane behind.
After Ruby Rose surprisingly left her Batwoman role behind due to the long hours required of a TV lead role, the star broke her silence on Instagram with an emotional tribute video to Kate Kane. The role has yet to be filled for season two, although actresses like Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Stephanie Beatriz and The Magicians star Jade Tailor have both expressed an interest in stepping up to play Batwoman in the Arrowverse show.
In an emotional Instagram post, Ruby Rose thanked everyone she worked with both in front of the camera and behind it, pointing out there would be too many tags to thank everyone individually. The star explained that it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but also mentioned she knows how big the role is for the LGBTQ+ community. At the end of the post, the former Batwoman star tried to put fans minds at ease, saying that she knows the second season of the Arrowverse show will be amazing. Take a look at her tribute video on Instagram below.

Thank you everyone for coming on this journey. If I mentioned everyone it would be 1000 tags.. but Thank you to the cast, crew, producers and studio. It wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know.. I didn’t want to not acknowledge everyone involved and how big this was for TV and for our community. I have stayed silent because that’s my choice for now but know I adore you all. I’m sure next season will be amazing also. Xxx *hangs up cowl and cape. Also @mysmarvel

Here’s the official synopsis for Batwoman season two:
Season two kicks off with a major game-changer that will alter Gotham and The Bat Team forever. As the dust settles, Batwoman has everything working against her – including the recently escaped rogues’ gallery of villains – and everyone will come to see her in a whole new light. Alice meets her match when she becomes entangled with a dangerous foe from her past who knows exactly how to prey on her vulnerabilities. As Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang) find their footing as sidekicks, a romance will shake up their dynamic. Meanwhile, Sophie (Megan Tandy) and Julia’s (guest star Christina Wolfe) budding relationship will face its first real test and make Sophie question everything she thought she knew to be true.
