Batwoman is a DC show about Kate Kane, cousin of Batman. In his absence, certain events happen, and she has to go for the rescue. And this is how Kate becomes a superhero, Batwoman. However, the Arrowverse Franchise keeps on expanding with the latest CW shows, and honestly, we are all here for it! The latest entry in the franchise was Batwoman Season 2, which got exceptional ratings and reviews. But will CW renew the show, and can we expect Batwoman season 3 or not?
The series has 2 seasons so far, and all seasons revolve around Batwoman trying her best to stop the evil. However, showrunners did something hazardous this time; they changed the titular character’s actor. This made history because no other Arrowverse show has ever done this before.
But did the ending of season 2 hint at the third season? After doing some deep research, this is what we have concluded. So, continue reading the article!
Batwoman Season 3 Release Date
The first episode of Season 2 of Batwoman aired in January of 2021 and the last episode aired recently in June. In the entirety of 6 months, we got 18 episodes.
But according to the creators, these were less because they had planned on more episodes, but the outbreak of covid-19 made the production phase very difficult. So, they had to compromise.
If you are an avid watcher of Arrowverse Shows, you must be aware that fans don’t have to wait long for the renewal news. They get to know about it in a few weeks. And the same happened for The Batwoman show, as it instantly got greenlit by CW.
But we don’t know how many episodes the new upcoming season will consist of. The streaming site even gave a release date for the third installment.
Brace yourself for it!
Batwoman 3 will be dropping on October 13th (2021) with its new fresh batch of episodes. So, clear the date on your calendar because things are about to get very interesting from this point onwards!
Things ended on a high note in the 2nd season’s finale, so we are sure that most of the main cast members will reprise their roles.
If our assumptions are correct, then expect the return of Javicia Leslie (as Ryan Wilder or Batwoman), Camrus Johnson (as Luke Fox or Batwing), Rachel Skarsten (as Alice or Beth Kane), and Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore.
Unfortunately, you won’t be seeing Dougray Scott, the actor who played Commander Jacob Kane, in the second season because he has left the series. He won’t be starring in the third season, but Scott is returning in later seasons.
The casting for a new season always depends on the way writers prefer to continue with the story. Because after they get done with the storyline, then only the casting can be confirmed.
We don’t have an official line-up from CW yet, but as the show’s new season will drop in October, we expect that the showrunners will let us know about the cast soon!
What will the story of Batwoman 3 explore?
The writers will resume the story from where it ended in the second installment.
A new super-villain will get introduced in the 3rd installment, which will stir more trouble for Ryan. But there will be a lot of family drama, too, because, in Batwoman 2, Alice revealed that Ryan’s biological mother never died while giving birth to her. Instead, she is still alive. So, you can expect the third season to revolve around this issue.
If you have watched the show, you must have noticed in the episode called “Power” that when Luke finally dresses up as Batwing, he vows that more heroes will join the fray. This was a major hint, and a tiny proportion of fans got this. This means that the new heroes and their past can be a potential plot of the third installment!
But these are just assumptions, and it is better to wait for official trailers or CW’s announcements!
Batwoman Season 3 Trailer
There are no official trailers or even teasers for the third installment yet. But as the show is scheduled for an October release. Expect the trailer to come out 2 to 3 months before the worldwide premiere!
But Batwoman’s official Twitter account keeps updating the fandom through their short clips, so there is no harm in watching them until we get a trailer.
As Batwoman is an Arrowverse show, a cross-over is definitely going to happen in the third season, which we will only find out once the show goes on air.
That was everything credible about batwoman’s 3rd installment coming out soon! But the show will release in October, and there is still plenty of time left, so in the meantime, you can watch another CW Show, “Baptiste Season 3.”
