Ruby Rose Speaks Out on Batwoman Exit: 'It Wasn't an Easy Decision'

Former Batwoman star Ruby Rose has taken to social media to thank fans for their support… and to hint at why she left the show in the first place.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, accompanied by a fan-made video, Rose — who quit the CW superhero drama last week — said: “Thank you everyone for coming on this journey. If I mentioned everyone it would be 1000 tags… but Thank you to the cast, crew, producers and studio.” She added that “it wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know. I didn’t want to not acknowledge everyone involved and how big this was for TV and for our community. I have stayed silent because that’s my choice for now but know I adore you all. I’m sure next season will be amazing also.”

Rose did not directly address reports that she balked at the long hours required to star in a weekly TV series and never acclimated to life in Vancouver, where Batwoman is shot. But her saying that “those who know, know” and that “I have stayed silent because that’s my choice for now” seems to imply she still has her own story to tell regarding her abrupt departure.

Batwoman has already been renewed for a second season, and Rose’s lead role of Kate Kane/Batwoman will be recast with an LGBTQ actress, according to producers Berlanti Prods. and Warner Bros. Television. “[We] thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best,” the two companies said in an earlier statement.
