The series, which is based on the DC Comics character Kate Kane / Batwoman, follows the story of Kate Kane, a costumed vigilante who takes on the mantle of Batwoman in Gotham City, three years after the disappearance of her cousin, Bruce Wayne, who is also known as Batman. The showrunner for this season is Caroline Dries.
The series stars Ruby Rose as Kate Kane and is joined by main cast members Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Elizabeth Anweis, and Dougray Scott. The show was picked up for a full season by The CW in October 2019, and filming took place primarily in Vancouver, British Columbia.

At the start of the series, we see Jacob Kane and his private security firm, the Crows, preside over a gala led by Mayor Michael Akins to turn off the Bat-Signal. However, things take a turn for the worse when Alice and the Wonderland Gang crash the event and abduct Crows operative Sophie Moore, prompting Jacob’s stepdaughter Mary to call his biological daughter, Kate.
Kate, who has been away from Gotham City for some time, returns home and sets out to locate her cousin, billionaire Bruce Wayne, who she believes is Batman. But as she delves deeper into the case, she discovers that there’s more to the story and ultimately dons her cousin’s Batsuit to rescue Sophie and stop Alice’s plan to detonate a bomb in a crowded park.
