In less than a month, Batwoman debuts as the latest series to join DC TV's expanding Arrowverse and new details about the inaugural season have been released.
The CW has released three episode titles from the Batwoman's first season, hinting at protagonist Kate Kane's tragic backstory being revealed. The fifth episode will be titled "Mine Is a Long and Sad Tale," the sixth will be titled "I'll Be Judge, I'll Be Jury," and the seventh will be titled "Tell Me the Truth."
The sixth episode title stops just shy of completing the justice trifecta by omitting the role of executioner, suggesting the possibility that Batwoman will be a non-lethal vigilante like her missing cousin Bruce Wayne, while the seventh title hints that hard questions will be asked for the main characters.
Spinning out of the events of last season's Arrowverse crossover "Elseworlds" and its introduction of Gotham City, Batwoman will follow Kate Kane take on the role of Gotham's protector as the eponymous superhero three years after the sudden and mysterious disappearance of Batman while a new villain named Alice threatens the city.
Written by Caroline Dries and developed by Bertlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis and Nicole Kang. The series will premiere on Sunday, Oct. 6 and air on Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT.
