The producers of the Batwoman telelvision series have confirmed that the next actress to play the lesbian superhero will be a member of the LGBT community.


The announcement follows the decision of gender-fluid Australian actress Ruby Rose to leave the role after just one series.

The 34-year-old said her decision to quit had not been "made lightly".


A studio source told TV Line that Rose had become unhappy with the full-time commitment of starring in a lead role in a television series.

The source said: “It wasn’t 100 per cent her decision. It was a break up. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No.


“So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.”

In a statement, producers Warner Brothers and CW said: “The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long term future.


“We - along with the show’s talented creative team - look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community in the coming months.”

Batwoman screens on E4 in the UK.
