The first season of Batwoman ran incessantly long even after being cut down from 22 episodes to 20. It premiered in October 2019 and ran till May 2020. However, the show did quite well and now has been renewed for a second season. Batwoman is based on the DC Comics characters ‘Batwoman’ and is a continuation of other series in the Arrowverse.
The superhero crime is developed by Caroline Dries and airs on The CW. The entirety of the first season has been shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, but the location setting is Chicago, Illinois. Here’s everything we know about the release, cast, and plot for season two of Batwoman.
Batwoman Season 2: When Will It Release?
A fixed release date has not been revealed yet, but The CW, while renewing the show for a second season, did mention that the potential release date would be in January 2021. However, if we look at the ongoing conditions of the world, the date seems irreverent. The episodes of the first season were cut down due to the current Corona pandemic. With productions halted (since March 2020), it seems impossible that a second season will be released in January 2021.
It will be quite sometime before the production resumes, and hence, we expect that the release date for Batwoman season 2 will be by the end of 2021 or the start of 2022. The narrative of Batwoman follows Kate Kane, cousin of philanthropist Bruce Wayne / Batman. Three years after the latter’s disappearance, Kane takes her brother’s place of becoming a superhero and guarding the streets of Gotham City as Batwoman. However, its her demons that she has to battle first.
Batwoman Season 2: Who Will Feature In The Cast?
The leading lady, Batwoman / Kate Kane, was played by Ruby Rose in the first season. However, she departed shortly after the completion of season one and is now replaced by Javicia Leslie as Batwoman. Other than her we have, Rachel Skarsten as Beth Kane / Alice, Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore, Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton, Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, and Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane. A season one character that we are sure won’t return is Catherine Hamilton-Kane as she was poisoned. The show also has a huge supporting and guest cast.
