Gotham is about to become home to a brand-new Bat when Javicia Leslie’s Batwoman swoops onto the scene.
A new synopsis and poster for the second season of Batwoman have been unveiled via Batwoman.TV, teasing the much-anticipated arrival of Leslie’s Ryan Wilder, who takes over the mantle of Batwoman after Kate Kane’s (Ruby Rose) disappearance. The new poster gets up close and personal with Leslie’s superhero persona and offers a detailed look at the Scarlet Caped Crusader’s armored gauntlets. The second season of Batwoman will also feature a robust rogue’s gallery, with villains the likes of Alice, Hush, the False Face Society, and Safiyah all looking to make Batwoman’s coming out party a real banger.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In season two of BATWOMAN, when Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) first discovers Kate Kane’s Batsuit, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. A sassy, smart lesbian with a difficult past, Ryan sees the suit as her chance to finally be powerful and no longer a victim as she survives in the tough streets of the city.
While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane’s disappearance hits hardest at home where Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang) and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham, distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, “Bruce Wayne” (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.
It’s not long before Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.
In addition to Leslie, Season 2 of Batwoman also stars Dougray Scott, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, and Camrus Johnson.
