This season brought with it big changes. Ruby Rose headlined the show’s first season as Kate Kane. However, the star decided to leave the show, paving the way for a new lead. Javicia Leslie was brought in to fill those shoes. But not as a new Kate Kane. Rather, she became a new character, Ryan Wilder. And that was just one of the many surprises the network had in store this season.
The cast includes Dougray Scott, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, and Camrus Johnson. While not spoiling anything, it was revealed prior to the episode that Johnson was set to make his debut as Batwing. It marks the first time that the character has appeared in live-action. That adds even more importance to the episode.”
Here is the synopsis for Batwoman season 2.
“While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane’s disappearance hits hardest at home where Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang) and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, Bruce Wayne (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.
As chaos and uncertainly proliferate, Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.
The series hails from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries, Smallville), Geoff Johns (Arrow, The Flash, Titans), Chad Fiveash (The Vampire Diaries, Gotham), James Patrick Stoteraux (The Vampire Diaries, Gotham) and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl).
Overall, the ArrowVerse is in a period of transition. Arrow ended last year and Black Lightning recently wrapped up its run. Supergirl is also currently airing its final season. But Superman & Lois got an early season 2 pickup, helping to fill the void alongside shows like Batwoman. Plus, Naomi, from Ava DuVernay, recently got a series order from the network. The CW intends to keep this universe going for as long as they can.
The Batwoman season 2 finale is now streaming on The CW website.
