The Batwoman series will debut this fall on The CW and it will introduce to viewers the beginning of Kate on her time as the heroine.

Just like Grant Gustin AKA Barry Allen, he was introduced in Arrow's season two episode "The Scientist" before getting his own TV show on the network. This is something that Arrowverse has done before, Introducing a character and then reintroduce them in their own TV show. Producer Sarah Schechter is wishing that they could do it on everyshow.

"It's actually really fun," Schechter said. "I kind of wish we could do it on every show because you get to kind of just be with the character and not have to have all of the explanation and introduce the world and you really just get, sort of, a flavor of who they are. Then you can kind of go back in and fill it. I wish we could just honestly, it's a great way to do it because it's less pressure than 'Here's the world. Here's all the people. We are going to tell you everything you need to know in 42 minutes and go.'" "So it was actually a great advantage to be able to do that, I think, in this show because then it also meant, when we did the pilot, we could really because I think this cast is incredible and it was fun to be able to spend time with everyone," Schechter continued. "And I think, if we hadn't known Kate a little bit, it would be harder to have the bandwidth to do that."

For Ruby Rose in her first appearance, it was a challenge because the character was already established as a hero.

"I think it was easier for everyone else and quite difficult for myself," Rose admitted. "I definitely went in with very little information aside from what I read in the comics. We had an idea of, kind of, where the series was going to go and if it was going to go and if we did a pilot. There were a ton of question marks. So I just had to, kind of, shut off the noise and go with what I knew and sort of play. But when we got to the pilot, I was very thankful to fill in all the blanks and all of the questions that I had."

Batwoman will premiere on October 6th on The CW.
