Lesbian Batwoman is to have her own TV show


The CW has ordered Batwoman to series. A pilot for the series was ordered in January, but the release date is yet to be announced, as the teaser posted last week includes a mysterious word ‘soon’ only. The DC Comics out lesbian superhero—the first openly LGBT+ live-action superhero – is played by an Australian actress Ruby Rose, who also identifies as a lesbian and who gained fame for her role in prison-themed Netflix series Orange Is The New Black. Rose made a successful debut as Kate Kane in December’s CW “Elseworlds” crossover event. The crossover event also featured The Flash‘s Barry Allen, Arrow‘s Oliver Queen and Supergirl’s alter ego Kara Danvers, whom fans have already identified as a possible partner for Batwoman. “I suddenly woke up at 4 am and in checking the time… came to discover BATWOMAN IS COMING TO THE CW IN FALL!!! I can’t thank everyone involved enough, and will not attempt to, until I am properly awake,” she wrote, before correcting herself over the release date and saying: “I’m pretty sure I made up that it’s coming in Fall. I have no idea when it’s coming. Ignore me. Your regular programming will return after this commercial break and by break I meant coffee.”
