Expected release date of Batwoman season 2
Season two of this amazing series is scheduled for a later than usual premiere in January 2021. It’s a common trend that the DC comic shows such as The CW broadcast typically at the beginning of September/October, however, the pandemic situation across the globe has taken a toll and above all Rose’s shocking exist who played the role of Batwoman in the previous season has also been a reason for the delay of the second season.
The expected cast for the new season
The sudden resignation of Ruby Rose came as a big shock however the series intends to continue the story of Kate Kane’s crimefighting across Gotham City. The producers have cast Javicia Leslie in the role of Ryan Wilder, who will see in the attire of Batwoman from the second season onwards. While Kate Kane has exited from the series we can highly expect the return of her other supporting actors to come back meaning that fans don’t have to bid farewell to every single character of the first season. Our favorite characters Luke Fox, Mary Hamilton, Jacob, and Alice are expected to make special appearances continuing with the series however it is going to be interesting to see their dynamic shifts with Kate being out of the picture. We can also expect to see more from Sophie Moore who is Kate’s ex-girlfriend.
What can possibly happen in Season 2?
The CW has released a synopsis for season two before the sudden exist of Rose, where it has been shown that Jacob Kane will be raging a war against Batwoman and her vigilante activities. There is also the small matter with regards to Bruce Wayner’s former friend Tommy Elliot, who will be seen who has adopted the supervillain character Hush to wreak havoc across Gotham City. There have also been few other details shown in the teaser released by The CW which includes a romance between Luke and Mary, as well as a dangerous enemy from Alice’s past who “knows exactly how to prey on her vulnerabilities”. Season one left off with Alice making plans to acquire Kryptonite by sending Tommy Elliot in the visage of Bruce Wayne to retrieve it from the billionaire’s company. She planned on using the meteor rock to kill Batwoman, so we can expect season two to continue with that storyline. However, nothing is certain and possibilities are there has these scenarios may change.
Storyline of Batwoman
Shortly after the start of the series Gotham is under siege by deadly Wonderland Gang, which is led by Mad Alice. With the city’s police force overwhelmed, Gotham’s primary source of legally authorized protection is the Crows. Returning to Gotham approximately three years after Bruce Wayne and Batman’s disappearance, Kate becomes Batwoman with the help of Luke Fox. Luke serves as the caretaker of Wayne Tower, with Kate using it as her own headquarters as Batwoman while he continues to develop new weapons and gadgets for her. While new and familiar foes surface across Gotham to compete against Batwoman, the biggest antagonist of the first season remains Alice who also happens to be the long lost sister of Kate. Showing the varied dynamics of Kate and Beth aka Alice the season one dealt with an emotional rollercoaster of these two powerful women.
