Rose, The CW, Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti's production company jointly announced the shocking news of Rose's exit. The announcement comes two days after the finale for Season 1, which was shortened due to the coronavirus shutdown. Batwoman was renewed for Season 2 in January, and Warner Bros. TV says title role will be recast when the DC Comics-based show returns in 2021. “I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season," Rose said in a statement. "This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity, but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success — I am truly grateful.” The CW, Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions said in a joint statement: "Warner Bros. Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best. The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we — along with the show’s talented creative team — look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months." When Rose was cast in summer 2018, she faced backlash on social media, prompting her to quit Twitter, though she's still on Instagram. ALSO: Ruby Rose happened to be a Jeopardy! clue on Tuesday.
