Batwoman has returned to screens in the US but when is season 2 arriving in the UK? When is the E4 release date expected to be?
Since it arrived on The CW in the US in October 2019, Batwoman has had quite a troubled start.
From the online harassment of Ruby Rose to the Covid-19 pandemic forcing season 1 to be cut short, the show seemed doomed for good when lead actress Ruby Rose left following season 1’s conclusion, citing a back injury she sustained while filming.
However, one recasting later and Batwoman is back for its long-awaited second season over in the US.
Fans here in the UK, meanwhile, have been left asking when Batwoman season 2 will be releasing here on E4.
Batwoman season 2 on The CW
Season 2 of Batwoman premiered on The CW in the US on January 17th, 2021.
Thanks to the departure of Ruby Rose, Kate Kane has mysteriously disappeared with new arrival Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) taking up the mantle of Batwoman.
The mission remains the same, however, as the new-look Batwoman intends to keep the streets of Gotham City free from crime.
Batwoman season 2 UK release date
- The UK release date for Batwoman season 2 has not been confirmed.
If we look to the release of season 1, however, we might be able to get some clue as to when season 2 will arrive.
Season 1 of Batwoman began airing on E4 in the UK on March 29th, 2020.
If season 2 was to follow the same pattern, as the Radio Times hints at, then we could see Batwoman return to E4 at some point during the spring.
How Covid-19 delayed season 2
Originally, it was expected that Batwoman season 2 would have started in around October.
However, production on Batwoman season 2 was delayed until September 2020 thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, meaning that the show began airing in January in the US, rather than October.
As a result, E4 viewers could have an even longer wait than originally thought.
Batwoman is currently airing weekly in the US on The CW while a UK release date has not yet been announced.
