Batwoman Celebrity Remarks on Ruby Rose’s Unexpected Death — Exclusive
Regardless of what happened in the past — distant or recent — Batwoman is moving ahead with a second season and a brand-new lead actress to take Ruby Rose’s place.
Warner Bros.. Television, Berlanti Productions, and the CW noted in a joint statement published on May 19, 2020 (through Variety) that”the studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman‘s second season and long-term future,” and that the actress hired to replace Rose will be, like Rose, a”member of the LGBTQ community.” Based on the announcement, there’s apparently no bad blood between Rose and the firms (despite reports claiming otherwise), as it states in part that they”wish her all the best” and are thankful for her work on Batwoman season 1.
There’s been no indication as of this writing who could fill Rose’s shoes as the new Batwoman, even though it’s been said that season 2 of the series will head in a”new direction” with the new actress at the forefront.
“I was talking to one of those Batwoman writers the other day, and we were saying how in this is a great creative opportunity,” Guggenheim said of Rose’s departure. “I think there will be people who come to the show, quite frankly, just to see how the authors decide to deal with this […] In these struggles lie the opportunity to do something new and different, and come up with a smart creative solution. That, to me, is the fun part of the job.”
