After one season on the CW, Ruby Rose has exited the drama series “Batwoman”. The show has already been renewed for a second season, so the role will therefore be recast.
Rose said in a statement:
“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.”
In a joint statement, Berlanti Prods. and WBTV said:
“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.”
With no comment direct to why the actress left the role, we can only speculate.
Production isn’t set to commence again until January, so there’s plenty of time for recasting.
