2 days after the season one finale, Ruby Rose has exited The CW’s “Batwoman.” This came as quite a shock to fans across the internet. Rose released a statement about her exit, which you can read below.
“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 both in Vancouver and in Los Angeles,” Rose said in a statement.
“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.”
The CW is planning to recast the title role for the second season THR reports, which was green lit earlier this year.
Neither Rose nor The CW have commented on a reason for the departure.
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for the fledging series, as back in September of 2019, Rose had to undergo emergency surgery for an injury she sustained while filming a stunt for “Batwoman.”
