Spoilers for 'Batwoman' Season 1

'Batwoman' Season 1 may have come to an end but the popular Arrowverse show has already been picked up for a second season by The CW. Featuring Ruby Rose as the titular vigilante, 'Batwoman' explores the Arrowverse's take on Gotham with some social justice added to the mix.

Here’s everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

'Batwoman' Season 2 will arrive on The CW in January 2021.

Plot

By the end of Season 1, a number of former Arkham inmates have now escaped and Kate has the difficult task of rounding them up while avoiding her father Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) who has declared all-out war on her. To make matters worse, the finale revealed that Hush / Tommy Elliot (Gabriel Mann) has now been disguised to look like Bruce Wayne by Alice (Rachel Skarsten), which is going to be a major headache for Batwoman.

Series creator and showrunner Caroline Dries has also confirmed that the pirate queen Safiyah Sohail will be showing up in Season 2. Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming season: "Season two kicks off with a major game-changer that will alter Gotham and The Bat Team forever. As the dust settles, Batwoman has everything working against her – including the recently escaped rogues' gallery of villains – and everyone will come to see her in a whole new light. Alice meets her match when she becomes entangled with a dangerous foe from her past who knows exactly how to prey on her vulnerabilities. As Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang) find their footing as sidekicks, a romance will shake up their dynamic. Meanwhile, Sophie (Megan Tandy) and Julia's (guest star Christina Wolfe) budding relationship will face its first real test and make Sophie question everything she thought she knew to be true."
