Batwoman is an upcoming American superhero television series developed by Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti. It is based on the DC Comics character Kate Kane / Batwoman, a costumed crime-fighter created by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Mark Waid, and Keith Giffen. The series is set in the Arrowverse, sharing continuity with the other television series of the universe. It is intended to air on The CW.
In May 2018, it was announced that Batwoman would appear in "Elseworlds", the Arrowverse series' 2018 crossover, with an announcement two months later that a series centered on the character was in development from Dries. In January 2019, the series received a pilot order from the CW, to be considered for a series order in the 2019–20 television season. By the end of the month, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, and Nicole Kang had been cast to appear alongside Rose in the pilot. The show was picked up to series in May 2019.
