Only a few weeks ago, the second season of the series "Batwoman" made it onto German free TV. Showrunner Caroline Dries has now announced via Twitter that US broadcaster The CW has canceled the DC series after season three. Her tweet reads: "I just received the sad news that 'Batwoman' will not see a fourth season."
She is sad on the one hand, but full of gratitude on the other. "What an honor to be able to do 51 episodes. So many inspiring, brilliant people have worked on the series. Thanks to the producers, cast and crew. And thank you, fans!"
The series about Batman's cousin Kate Kane aka Batwoman had to cope with a heavy setback after season one. Leading actress Ruby Rose quit after 20 episodes, from season two actress Javicia Leslie slipped into the Batwoman costume as the newly introduced character Ryan Wilder.
The 13-episode third season has already aired in its entirety in the US. Here the fans have already witnessed the end of the series. It is not yet clear when the final episodes will come to Germany.
A second DC series is being scrapped
But not only "Batwoman" fans look into the tube. The CW also canceled the series DC's Legends of Tomorrow. This was also announced by the showrunner of the series on Twitter. Keto Shimizu wrote, "Well folks. It's been an amazing run. Unfortunately, The CW has informed us that there will be no 'Legends of Tomorrow' Season 8."
