After a successful first season, The CW has renewed the latest show in the Arrowverse for a second season and we have all the details on how you can watch new episodes of Batwoman online or on TV.
When billionaire Bruce Wayne and his vigilante alter-ego Batman disappeared, Gotham needed a hero which is why his cousin Kate Kane took up the mantle of Batwoman. While actress Ruby Rose played the role of Batwoman in the first season of the show, she ended up leaving and for this reason, season two will feature an all-new Batwoman. In July of last year, actress Javicia Leslie was cast as a new character named Ryan Wilder who will take up the position of Batwoman in season two.
In the first season of the show, Kane took on the Alice in Wonderland gang alongside her father Commander Jacob Kane who runs Crows Private Security. The military-grade security force was called in to clean up Gotham after the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs during the three years that Batman was missing. Although Batwoman and Commander Kane share a common enemy, he doesn't believe that vigilantes have a right to operate in the city.
Season two of Batwoman will see Wilder debut a new suit and continue Kate Kane's mission of trying to clean up Gotham. At the same time though, questions still remain as to what happened to Kate and where she is now.
Whether you're a fan of CW's other DC superhero shows or just want to see a new actress take up the role of Batwoman, we'll show you how to watch season 2 of Batwoman from anywhere in the world.
