Batwoman Canceled After 3 Seasons on The CW

Batwoman’s time in Gotham has come to an end.

The CW has canceled the DC Comics drama after three seasons. Showrunner Caroline Dries shared the news on social media Friday.

The cancellation comes a month after Batwoman aired its third season (and now series) finale on the network.

The first season follows Kate Kane, the cousin of vigilante Bruce Wayne, who becomes Batwoman in his absence. Beginning with the second season, the series focuses on former convict Ryan Wilder as she protects Gotham City in the role of Batwoman.

Development on a Batwoman series began in 2018 after it was announced that Kate would appear in the Arrowverse crossover Elseworlds.

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.

In October 2021, Rose spoke out on the working conditions of her time on Batwoman calling the environment toxic.
