Rosa underwent emergency surgery last year after herniating two discs from her hard work of stunt show, which caused an anterior injury to flare up and cause her chronic pain, with her spinal cord at risk that to be divided and paralyzed.In an interview with EW, Rose said she was proud of herself “for working under some sort of interesting circumstance” while recovering from surgery, but admitted she had time to reevaluate her role in the CW series while production was closed due to of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
“It was not that much [the injury], especially because after we finished we did not get to finish the real finale because of COVID, “Rose explained, referring to Batwoman’s shortened season, which ended after 20 episodes instead of 22 as originally planned.” You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to think only about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do. I think of both [me and the producers], was a great opportunity to have a dialogue on many things. “I respect them a lot and they have been so respectful to me.”
TV shows that killed, dropped or changed their main character
The CW has already announced that it will not take on the role of Kate Kane for the next second season, nor will Rosa’s character be killed between seasons 1 and 2. Instead, actress Javicia Leslie will take on the lead role as a young character named Ryan Wilder, who is described as “likable, messy, a little arrogant and premeditated,” and apparently nothing like “the woman who wore the clothes in front of her.”
Batwoman season 2 is expected to debut in January 2021. The CW previously hinted that the next Arrowverse intersection will focus on Batwoman and the new Superman and Lois series, though it is unclear if those plans have changed since Rose left. We’re hoping to learn more at the DC’s FanDome virtual event, which is scheduled to launch on Saturday, August 22nd.
