Deadline Hollywood reports:
This is a shocker: Ruby Rose, the star of the CW’s freshman drama series Batwoman, is leaving the Warner Bros. TV/Berlanti Prods. drama after one season. The series, which already has been renewed for a second season, will continue with the title role getting recast.
Orange Is the New Black alumna Rose returned to the small screen with Batwoman, playing the first gay lead character — male or female — of a live-action superhero series. Her character came out to Gotham City in an episode of the series’ freshman season.
In a joint statement, Berlanti Prods. and WBTV reaffirmed their commitment to Batwoman and to casting another LGBTQ actress in the groundbreaking role.
