"Batwoman", "Katy Keene", "Nancy Drew", serial order at CW – Variety

The CW has added three of its pilots to the series.

"Batwoman", "Katy Keene" and "Nancy Drew" were all ordered for the 2019-2020 season. In addition, one person with knowledge of the situation said that "Jane the Novela", a spin-off of the CW series "Jane the Virgin", is not progressing at the station. The pilot of the series adaptation of "The Lost Boys" is shot down again. "Glamorous" about a non-gender compliant high school student may still be controversial.

"Batwoman" is based on the eponymous DC Comics character. Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) is gearing herself into the streets of Gotham with a passion for social justice and a flair for talking her mind, as Batwoman, a decidedly lesbian and well-trained street fighter who can bomb the city's criminal revival.
