In a shocking and unexpected announcement, actress Ruby Rose confirmed recently that she was leaving her starring role as Batwoman on the TV show of the same name. A new report sheds some light on why Rose quit the show. Multiple sources told Variety that Rose was “unhappy with the long hours required of her as the series lead, which led to friction on set.”
Some people speculated that Rose left Batwoman due to lingering pain from her surgery to repair her herniated discs. However, Variety’s sources said her decision to leave the show was unrelated to her health or an injury.
Warner Bros. is now looking to cast a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community for the role of Kate Kane/Batwoman. In a statement, Rose said she has “the utmost respect for the cast, crew, and everyone involved” in the show.
“Thank you to everyone who made season one a success–I am truly grateful,” Rose said.
Batwoman Season 1 concluded the week of May 18, with a finale episode cliffhanger establishing a new villain for Kate to face off against in the future. Season 2 is set to premiere sometime in January 2021, but it is unknown whether the recasting process will lead to delays.
