The CW is prepping to begin filming the second season of Batwoman very soon. Most of the original first season’s cast is set to return with Javicia Leslie taking on the show’s leading character.

In season 2, Shivani Ghai will be playing a character named Alana. Not much else is known about her or her character’s background. Her name, however, could be an alias revolving around a character in Gotham City.

Shivaani Ghai’s Background

Beginning next week DC will stream their second free DC FanDome event. Most likely, we’ll get some more insight on Batwoman season 2 along with The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Stargirl, and their upcoming show Superman and Lois. 

In the show’s first season finale “O’Mouse”, Jacob makes good on his threat, despite Kate’s desire to prove to her father that Batwoman is one of the good guys. After a nasty run-in with the Arkham breakout Tim “Titan” Teslow, a local record-setting linebacker who was exploited and experimented on when he was younger, Batwoman teams up with the Crows to stop Titan’s murder spree. But when Kate moves forward with the plan to stop Titan, Jacob reveals his alliance was a setup. The Crows riddle Titan’s body with bullets before turning their guns on Batwoman. She escapes, but it’s clear that, like Alice, Jacob has crossed a line and caused some serious emotional hurt on Kate’s part. Meanwhile, Alice has been laser-focused on killing Kate for putting her back behind bars, and now that she knows kryptonite is the key to doing so, she’s not about to abandon that pursuit.
