The superhero drama extends its debut run.
October 25, 2019
The CW announced today that Batwoman has been given a back-order of nine episodes to bring its total to 22 - a full season's worth. The good news comes three weeks into the superhero drama's run, which has been pulling in decent ratings for the network.
Set in the same universe as The CW's other superhero shows, Batwoman takes place years after Batman mysteriously disappeared from Gotham, leaving the city to fall into despair. When the Alice in Wonderland gang wreaks havoc, Kate Kane returns home to help her city, becoming the dark knight vigilante known as Batwoman.

It's BatWoman not Batgirl. And of course her hair is a wig, Ruby Rose has had short hair in like everything I have ever seen her in. Kate is a lesbian in the comics, they didn't just make her gay for the show. She is a a lesbian superhero, just like Bruce she is going to have romances and personal problems.

Watched 1 and a half episodes.. as soon as they made batgirl a lesbian my interest GREATLY wained. (psssst.. Hollywood, not EVERYTHING has to be adjusted to wedge in some LGBT issue unnecessarily) In spite of the rewrite to the character's sexuality... if the storylines were decent enough and the acting good, I'd have continued to watch.. unfortunately, they weren't. What really makes be wonder is why the POSTER AND ADVERTISING show a female with long flowing red hair.. and were CLEARLY trying to play on the "sex factor" for younger male viewers. They they throw all that out the window with a butch haircut on a lesbian... huh???? Who's doing the marketing here????

This show is awful. Purely terrible in every sense of the word. This proves that tv execs do NOT care about the quality of a show....just the lame girl who is supposed to be a star.

I am surprised this got a full season pickup! 3.1/10 on IMDB with over 13,000 votes is very poor! I watched one episode and it was just woeful...

I only watched the trailer and that was enough for me to know I wouldn't be a fan and won't be watching it. As others have said... I don't want to be beat over the with feminism/diversity. Clearly I'm not the target audience nor am I surprised it got picked up for a full season considering our current pc climate. I have no problem with a strong female lead or a lesbian character but judging from the trailer bad writing is bad writing... same with the casting. Good luck to the show for the people it employs.

The ratings, and week over week decline in them, don't justify this. Neither the acting nor the plot justify this.

better than expected. trim the cast. the father, the ex-lover and her husband all need to go. both the evil sister and the step sister are good. lucius' son is ok. the problem with CW shows are too many characters !!!

@ChrisW : Sadly, it is often the focus in marketing campaigns, which I find ridiculous and completely counter-productive, both for the show itself and for the LGBT cause. But that makes it a show with bad marketing, not a bad show itself. And you'd be wrong to assume the story is about her sexual orientation. This isn't "The L World: Capes Edition".

When it was being promoted, they made it perfectly clear that they weren't targeting me for their audience. They made it more about sexual orientation than the character.
I'm a fairly progressive person when it comes to social issues, but when sexual orientation is your primary focus instead of the character itself, that's when it becomes PC.
Judging by the ratings, I'm going to assume the story never was about Batwoman as a character as much as it was Batwoman as a gay woman. I'm also going to assume CW has nothing better coming in to them, because the ratings don't seem like they would support this show under normal circumstances.

Can't producers just make an entertaining show without injecting political social engineering in to it?
