American Superhero Television series Batwoman will no longer have season 4, according to showrunner Caroline Dries.
The news came out last Friday, April 2022 that the series will not be returning for a fourth season. The third season wrapped on a serious cliffhanger, leaving many fans disappointed.
Batwoman’s Journey With CW
According to fans, the storyline should have a proper closure while the third season of Batwoman didn’t come out from what was being expected.
Batwoman started airing in 2019 with Ruby Rose as the lead actress in the series but exited after the first season. She later gave the reason for her exit that unsafe working conditions, as well as her issues with co-star Dougray Scott, brought her to make that decision.
After that, Javicia Leslie was brought in as a new character to take over the mantle of Batwoman. The show also starred Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Campus Johnson, Victoria Cartagena, Robin Givens, and Nick Creegan.
