Proceed with caution, as some spoilers are waiting for you in this context!
Ruby Rose left the show after Season 1 due to her back surgery following an on-set accident. Wallis Day was cast in a recurring role to replace her. Following the events of Season 1’s climax, the new Kate Kane supposedly died when the aeroplane she was in got wrecked. Season 2 sprang with Ryan Wilder replacing Kate as the new Batwoman, attaining Batsuit from the wrecked aeroplane. The season was a complete spine-chiller for all the fans out there.
The final shot revealed several Batman trophies comprising Penguin’s umbrella, Poison Ivy’s vines, and Mad Hatter’s hat. There’s a strong possibility that they’ll play a key role in Season 3. Entertainment Weekly also suggested the same, “This season will explore the final scene of Season 2 and how it plays a major impact going forward.” Besides, Camrus Johnson suited up as Batwing and will fight more criminals in Season 3, rather than sitting idly in the Batcave.
As per our sources, we know that Kate is not dead but kept hostage by Black Mask. That too, the third season will cover, in particular. More importantly, the biggest reveal for Season 3 is that Alice is not dead. She didn’t die at all during childbirth. Instead, she is alive and will be one of the main focuses of Season 3. Besides, the season will also follow Ryan’s backstory. Caroline Dries stated that she is innocent and was put away in jail because she is a Black woman.
