Batwoman to Debut on Sundays on The CW

The CW recently debuted their schedule for the Fall 2019 season, and it included the dawn of a new era for superhero television. The schedule revealed that Batwoman, the latest Arrowverse spinoff, will be debuting on Sunday nights at 8/7c on The CW, followed by new episodes of Supergirl.

Batwoman will follow Kate Kane (Ruby Rose), an openly-lesbian crime fighter who aims to keep Gotham safe while dealing with her own demons.

“She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, she has ladies that love her," Rose said in an interview last year. "I think, for the most part, crossover-wise, she’s swaggy. She always knew who she was, but she’s really coming into knowing who she is in the crossover, and with Batwoman as well. It’s not the first time she’s put on the suit.”

“The fact that she is an outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role,” Rose continued. “This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past.”

"I get to be Batwoman," Rose said when she was first cast in the role. "I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional was because growing up watching TV I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero. I've always had this saying, well not me, Oscar Wilde, which is 'be yourself because everyone else is taken' and so I always lived by that motto and the second motto when I came into the industry was 'be the person that you needed when you were younger' and I feel like one motto sort of led me to the other and I just kept crying about it."

The cast of Batwoman also includes Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore, Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, Dougray Scott as Colonel Jacob Kane, Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Nicole Kangas Mary Hamilton, and Rachel Skarsten as Red Alice.
