The “Batwoman” Season 1 finale ended with quite a cliffhanger, and fans won’t get more until 2021. Luckily, creator and showrunner Caroline Dries gave International Business Times a few teasers about what to expect when “Batwoman” Season 2 airs on The CW next year. Spoilers ahead! 

“Superman & Lois” Crossover — Kate (Ruby Rose) will cross paths with Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch), but Dries confirmed that work hadn’t really begun on the scaled-down Arrowverse crossover as it was only revealed last week. “All I've done recently is just emailed it to Todd [Helbing, ‘Superman & Lois’ showrunner]. And I said, ‘Hey, this is happening...I can't wait to be in Metropolis,’ and he's like, ‘In Smallville,’” she laughed.

“I have a little bit of research, but they don't have any scripts out yet, like that's been released, so nothing's been shot. So obviously I know about ‘Superman & Lois’ and I know it will be taking place in Smallville and all the rest is to be determined, but it's going to be a great challenge because those crossovers always end up so awesome.”

The executive producer acknowledged that a two-show crossover is a lot easier from both a production and casual viewer standpoint. “For sure, logistically, schedule-wise, actor-wise—way easier. And it’s also probably more palatable for the audience,” she said. “You know, like somebody like my mom watching ‘Crisis’ is like, what's happening? Whereas this…everyone knows who Superman and Lois are.”

Batman — The ending of the “Batwoman” finale revealed that Alice (Rachel Skarsten) gave Hush a familiar facade—specifically, Bruce Wayne’s face (Warren Christie). He’ll have scenes as both Tommy and Bruce.

“We also needed to cast an actor who was incredibly talented, who was basically playing two personalities and was able to just flip them on and off,” Dries explained to IBT. “And so, we haven't seen it yet, but he's going to need to, he's going to indulge in his like, Tommy's going to have his Bruce experience, but when Alice is around, he's still going to be Tommy. So it's going to be fun to see the light switch go on and off with him.”

Alice’s New Foe — The CW teased that Alice would be facing an enemy from her past in Season 2, and Dries confirmed that it’s someone viewers already heard about in “Batwoman” Season 1.

“That would be Safiyah,” Dries revealed to IBT. “Safiyah is the woman that killed her Wonderland gang and who was trying to kill Batwoman in episode 7 and Alice destroyed the Coil Accelerator, which is the weapon she was after. So she's got a bone to pick with Alice, for sure.”

Mary and Luke — The CW’s press release also warned that “a romance will shake up [the] dynamic” between Mary (Nicole Kang) and Luke (Camrus Johnson), but Dries told IBT to pay attention to the wording. “Well, if you look at the semantics of that sentence, it says a romance. So it's not necessarily between Luke and Mary,” she noted. “It's just somebody is involved in a romance, and it shakes up the dynamic between Luke and Mary.”

Kate wouldn’t be thrilled about any type of romantic entanglements in the Batcave. “But does Kate want it? No... Most of the days Kate wishes she were a solo act anyway, just because of the interpersonal drama. But yet...would she be pro-relationship? I mean Kate would, but Batwoman probably not because it's just a lot of extra drama.”

Kate’s Sisters — Alice is Kate’s twin. Mary is Kate’s stepsister. Alice killed Mary’s mother. It’s safe to say that the well of drama from that murder has not run dry yet. Dries said she’s waiting for those emotions to resurface.

“That piece of the Kate-Mary relationship has not fully healed because as long as Kate has a soft spot for Alice, there's danger,” Dries explained. “Mary has not, in my opinion, fully grieved the death of her mom and that fact that Alice killed her. So there's all of that gap to explore, that emotional gap to explore, in Season 2.”

The showrunner couldn't reveal too much more since the "Batwoman" Season 2 writers room hasn't started just yet. 

“Batwoman” Season 2 will premiere in 2021. Season 1 is available to watch for free on The CW website and app. It will start streaming on HBO Max this summer.
