It has just been confirmed that Batwoman will be cancelled after three seasons. However, it looks like lead star Javicia Leslie is taking it all in stride. Leslie has just thanked the fans of the CW show for all their support for the series from the beginning.

On Friday, showrunner Caroline Dries confirmed that Batwoman will not be renewed for a fourth season. Soon after that, the cast and crew began sharing their thoughts on the cancellation. Javicia Leslie took to her official Instagram account to share her gratitude for the role of a lifetime.

"The Most High never ceases to amaze me! I was taught that words have power and we speak our life into existence. Well, I spoke this role into my life, and what an honor it has been to watch it play out exactly how it was meant to," Leslie wrote. "Family, this Bat Team is ours.. HERstory was made and it can never be taken."

She continued, "Going to set with such an amazing crew and cast makes work feel like play EVERY DAY! Thank you to our entire production team in Vancouver, our LA peeps that keep the stories coming, our big-wigs that believed that we could really do this, and our amazing cast that give their hearts on screen every episode!"

Finally, Leslie thanked Batwoman fans. "And to the fans… WOW… I tear up thinking about all of your messages, tweets, DMs, and letters!! You all reminded me why what we do is soooo important," she wrote.


Javicia Leslie was cast as Ryan Wilder after Ruby Rose departed the series after its first season. She played Batwoman's successor in the second and third seasons of the CW series. The third season concluded in March this year.
