It’s dead. It is most definitely not pining for the fjords. It’s not pining! It’s passed on! This show is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet it’s maker! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If the CW hadn’t nailed it to the schedule it’d be pushing up the daisies! It’s metabolic processes are now history! It’s off the twig! It’s kicked the bucket, it’s shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-SHOW!!

Batwoman is a dead show, but nobody has told them yet. Batwoman Season 1 was legendary for shedding viewers across its season like a dog sheds its coat for summer. Batwoman season 2 never even bothered to get viewers in the first place. Just 663,000 people watched the show, out of the whole population of America. That’s lower than the lowest point of last season.

Javicia Leslie donning the cape and cowl following Ruby Rose’s shock exit was hoped to provide a boost. It didn’t. The figures landed with a thud at CW headquarters. The kind of thud that probably hasn’t been heard since Dougray Scott’s agent hit the floor.

“I should have been f**king Wolverine!”

Supergirl is winding down and Black Lightning is also ending. The crossover event this year has been cancelled. Could it be? Will the Berlanti-verse be vanquished from our screens? Nothing we have seen of Superman And Lois would suggest anything worthy of salvation.

Either way, don’t expect Batwoman to be renewed with figures like that. If it is then it will prove that Hollywood is now run on virtue rather than reality. Either that, or Berlanti has photos.
