Ruby Rose, the star of TV’s Batwoman has shocked fans and viewers by quitting the show, which has already been renewed for a second season.
At time of publication the actress and model had given no firm reason for her decision, though it seems that her departure is an amicable one. The CW, who air the show in the U.S. has committed to re-casting, and the series will continue.
I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season. 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.
Even though the series has received mixed reviews, it’s very popular and is one over a dozen series that Warner Bros.’ subsidiary network The CW has renewed for 2021.
The network had this to say:
Warner Bros. Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best. The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we – along with the show’s talented creative team – look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months.
