The CW has picked up the Ruby Rose-starrer Batwoman and the Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene and have been ordered both to series for the 2019-2020 season. 

"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 a description of Batwoman.

The character debuted last year in The CW's annual 'Arrowverse' crossover "Elseworlds".  

Caroline Dries will write and executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, David Nutter and Marcos Siega, who also directed the pilot.

The series has a brand new Twitter page and teaser to launch it. 

Katy Keene based on the Archie Comics character, follows "aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), who meets Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams. Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez – and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp)."

Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi will write and executive produce. Berlanti, Schechter, and Archie Comics CEO and Publisher Jon Goldwater will executive produce, along with Maggie Kiley who also directed the pilot.
