Batwoman Scores Pilot Order at The CW

at .

Batwoman's future looks rosier than ever at The CW. 

Just under six months after entering development, the hero has snagged a pilot order at the network. 

The news is unsurprising, especially when you consider the bumper ratings the Elseworlds crossover pulled in. 

Ruby Rose as Batwoman - Arrow

That crossover bowed last month and gave Arrowverse viewers their first glimpse of Ruby Rose as the hero, as well as their first look at Gotham City.  

"Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence," reads the official logline.

"But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope."

Ruby Rose Attends Event

If all goes to plan and The CW likes the standalone series, it could be on the air as early as Fall 2019. 

The network is already home to Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl which form the Arrowverse so Batwoman would be the fifth series in that specific universe.

Whether this would mean the network would be looking to end one of the more longer running shows, it's not clear at this time.

The good news is that the network now broadcasts on Sunday nights. 

There's also the possibility that all of the shows in that universe will span fewer episodes and be on the air at different times of the year. 

Alas, we will surely learn more when/if the pilot goes to series.

There are people in this world who deal only in extremes. It's naive to think that anything less than extreme measures will stop them.

Every warrior must learn the simple truth -- that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional.
