Batwoman Season 4 Updates & Info: Will It Happen? | Screen Rant

Warning: Spoilers for the Batwoman season 3 finale.

With the finale of Batwoman season 3 having aired, audiences can't help but wonder what it's in store for Batwoman season 4 should it happen–here's everything we know. After a drastic change of course from season 1 to season 2, which saw Ruby Rose's Kate Kane being replaced by Javicia Leslie's Ryan Wilder, it looks like Batwoman is finally comfortable with what show it wants to be and what tone it wants to carry. Like every show in the Arrowverse, Batwoman's season 3 finale had high stakes, with the ultimate showdown between the hero and the Joker.

Nick Creegan’s take on Batwoman's Marquis/Joker is an inspired one, no doubt, but it wouldn’t really be the Joker without a master plan to destroy Gotham City using deadly gas. As is often the case with the Joker, however, the plan was stopped midway through and a greater tragedy was averted thanks to Batwoman and her teammates. Even with the Joker's defeat, things will still likely be complicated for Gotham in Batwoman season 4.

Batwoman seemed unwilling to leave any loose ends for a fourth season, save for a scene at the end of the episode. As Batwoman and her friends celebrated, what could be season 4's main threat emerged amid the aftermath of the battle against the Joker. However, the creature’s identity is still a mystery. Here's everything we know about Batwoman season 4.

So far, there's no confirmation of whether Batwoman season 4 will happen. While this is a worrying fact given that shows in the CW's Arrowverse usually have their renewal or cancellation announced by this time, Batwoman fans can still hope that her show will continue. The fact that the ending of Batwoman season 3 left viewers on a major cliffhanger means that, at least for the producers, this isn't the end of the story. It's worth noting that Batwoman isn't the only Arrowverse show in limbo. The announcement that Warner Bros. is putting the CW up for sale in January may very well be a reason that things are up in the air right now.

Batwoman season 3 would have had a definitive ending if it weren't for the last few seconds of the episode. Even after they've defeated the Joker and opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate their victory against another villain, Gotham's team of Bat-heroes discover that a new threat haunts the city. A mysterious, pale-fingered creature terrifying enough to cause people to scream in fear appeared at the end of the Batwoman season 3 finale, meaning another Batman villain is set to join the Arrowverse.

There are several theories as to which Batman villain appeared in the Batwoman season 3 finale's final moments. It could be Solomon Grundy, the zombie who is reborn from the swamps of Gotham and whose original look is somewhat reminiscent of the Batwoman figure. Another option is Doctor Death, one of Batman's first supervillains who also happens to have long fingers, or even one of Hugo Strange's Monster Men. Whoever it is, this new threat walking around Gotham City is Batwoman season 4's main hook.

Most of the cast is expected to return should there be a Batwoman season 4, including Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder/Batwoman, Rachel Skarsten as Beth Kane/Alice (who could now be heading for a redemption arc), Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox/Batwing, Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton and Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore. Showrunner Caroline Dries also teased Batwoman season 4 storylines, expressing a desire for Nick Creegan's Marquis Jet and Robin Givens' Jada Jet to return for a possible fourth season. However, Bridget Regan's Poison Ivy may not return or have a reduced role thanks to the character's restricted screen time set by Warner Bros.

Whether Batwoman will be renewed is still a mystery, thus explaining why there is no release date for Batwoman season 4. Things seem to be in the balance in the Arrowverse for the first time in a long time, thanks to The CW's aforementioned possible sale being discussed. If Batwoman season 4 is announced soon, then it would likely premiere in October 2022.
