A Batwoman series is in development for the CW network according to The Hollywood Reporter. Television. The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will pen the script.

The CW's slate of DC comic book shows is about to grow larger with a Batwoman series now in development at the network, reports Variety.

And whoever ends up playing Batwoman will actually show up alongside the heroes of those shows, as she'll crop up in one of the DCTV's annual crossovers later this year. "Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".

Dries and Berlanti are slotted in to executive produce Batwoman, joine by Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. Sara Lance, the "captain" of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, is bisexual; Black Lightning's Anissa Pierce is out and proud; Supergirl lead Alex Danvers had a very well done coming out story and a trans character is on the way for Supergirl; Arrow has Curtis Holt; and The Flash has the occasionally appearing Pied Piper, among others. The next crossover event between the shows premieres in December. Now Batwoman would become the first gay lead character - male or female - of a live-action superhero series.

Kate Kane is an openly gay Gotham City heiress who decides to take up the vigilante mantle of Batwoman after being inspired by Batman.

Batwoman could soon be coming to the "Arrow"-verse".

If the series gets picked up by The CW, which is likely, it will be Berlanti's seventh show airing on the network, and 15th overall. Dries has also been tapped as an executive producer. The animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray follows the openly gay superhero the Ray, voiced by Russell Tovey, who also played him in last year's Crisis on Earth-X crossover.

Batwoman first appeared in print in the early days of Detective Comics but was later ditched, making her grand revival in 2006. On film, Batwoman appeared in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, voiced by Kyra Sedgwick, a 2002 direct-to-video animated film based on animated series The New Batman Adventures. Much like Batman, Batwoman is a wealthy crime fighter who chooses to use her money to build a crime-fighting empire.
