Having now aired three episodes in the US, The CW’s has moved to extend Batwoman’s first season to 22 episodes.
Previously, the debut season of the Ruby Rose-headlined Arrowverse show was pegged for an initial 13-episode run. Now though, the positive early response to Batwoman has seen The CW give the series a full order of 22 offerings.
While US audiences are getting wowed by Rose’s Kate Kane each and every Sunday night, however, UK viewers are yet to have the chance to check out Batwoman. Despite Sky having the rights to the other shared Arrowverse shows – Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – they don’t have the rights for Batwoman.
In a statement just last week from Sky, it was confirmed that the rights for Batwoman have been picked up by another, to-be-confirmed party. Not only do we not know who that party is, we don’t know when Batwoman will premiere in the UK, and this will also throw a massive spanner in the works for UK audiences when it comes to this year’s monumental Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
