Batwoman may be defending Gotham City for the long haul.
The CW has picked up the series and fellow freshman program Nancy Drew for full 22-episode orders. A common practice in television is to give a new series a 13-episode order and pick up “the back 9” if ratings prove it worthwhile. According to a press release the network sent out, this is the case with both shows as “Batwoman has seen its linear ratings grow 73% among adults 18-34 and 80% in adults 18-49 with [live plus seven day streaming] viewership, with Nancy Drew posting 94% gains in adults 18-34 and 114% in adults 18-49 in L+7 gains.”
In simpler terms, both shows are appealing to The CW’s key demographics.
Also of note: the entirety of both programs will be available to steam on The CW app. In previous years, the app has only maintained the most recent four or five episodes of its various shows. And as previously reported, the first season of Batwoman will be the first Arrowverse show to head to HBO Max this summer instead of Netflix as part of the coming streaming wars.
Batwoman airs Sundays on The CW.
