Ruby Rose Decided to Leave ‘Batwoman’ For These Reasons

We now know the reason why Ruby Rose decided to leave Batwoman, the role she originated in season one of The CW drama.

“It wasn’t 100-percent her decision,” a source told TV Line. “It was a breakup. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.”

Apparently, Ruby didn’t like the “long hours demanded of a lead TV role” and didn’t enjoy living in Vancouver, Canada, where the show was filmed.

The show’s second season is set to debut in January 2021.
