Season 1 of Batwoman was all about real estate developer Kate Kane, played by Rose. Kate followed in the footsteps of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, and became Gotham’s new protector.

Deadline reported that Batwoman Season 2 will revolve around a new character. As of now, the vigilante who will presumably take up Batwoman’s cause is being called, Ryan Wilder.

The news outlet quoted the show’s creator and showrunner as saying, “I’m inventing a whole new character who in her past was inspired by Batwoman, so she will take on the mantle and is completely maybe not the right person at the time to be doing it, so that’s what makes it fun.”

The new hero under the mask will undoubtedly require backup, but the current Bat Team, Luke and Mary, are closely linked to Kate. The shift in dynamics may initially cause some tension in the Bat Cave. To create a realistic changing of the guard, Batwoman would be wise to build in time for her allies to get acclimated to a new chain of command.

Now that Rose has departed Batwoman, the writers will need to craft a fitting exit for her character. In a tweet, Dries, confirmed that Kate will not die in the narrative, and explained the reason why:

“As a lesbian who’s been working as a writer for the past 15 years, I’m well aware of the “Bury Your Gays” trope and I have no interest in participating in it. That’s why it’s important to me as the showrunner to clarify any misinformation out there about Kate Kane and recasting Batwoman.”
