Kate Kane never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety.
After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore. Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane, who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate—the daughter he still has—at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes—a dark knight vigilante.
Batwoman premieres on The CW this fall and sees Ruby Rose joined in the cast by Dougary Scott (Mission: Impossible 2) as Kate’s father Jacob Kane, Elizabeth Anweis (Twin Peaks) as her stepmother Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Meagan Tandy (Teen Wolf) as love interest Sophie Moore, Nicole Kang (You) as Kate’s stepsister Mary Hamilton, Camrus Johnson (Luke Cage) as Luke Fox, a.k.a. Batwing, and Rachel Skarsten (Lost Girl) as Alice, the leader of the villainous Wonderland Gang.
