Ruby Rose has decided not to return the lead role for the second season of Batwoman just two days after the DC TV aired Season 1 finale. Rose released a statement confirming her exit on the show, but didn’t revealed the reason why.
I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” said the actress. “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity, but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success — I am truly grateful.
This news comes after Warner Bros. announced that Batwoman was renewed for a second season in January. This leaves the show with no lead for the upcoming season. However, THR is reporting that Amber Hear is in the running to replace Rose as Kate Kane in the series.
