"It wasn't an easy decision but those who know, know," Rose posted on her personal Instagram on Wednesday. "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."
Berlanti Productions and WBTV confirmed to CNET sister site GameSpot on May 19 that the Kate Kane/Batwoman role will be recast, and that both companies are "firmly committed" to Batwoman's future.
"I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season," Rose said in her official statement on May 19 when the news of her departure first broke. "This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles."
