Ruby Rose breaks silence on shocking ‘Batwoman’ exit after one season

Her response was almost as mysterious as the departure itself.

After rumors of a mutually miserable on-set experience, Ruby Rose finally addressed the reasons behind her shocking “Batwoman” exit in a social media post — but the comment left more questions than answers.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but those who know, know…” Rose, 34, cryptically wrote in an Instagram post Wednesday night.

“I didn’t want to not acknowledge everyone involved and how big this was for TV and for our community,” the gender-fluid Australian model-turned-actress wrote next to a video montage from the show. “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. Xxx *hangs up cowl and cape.”

On May 20, the news broke that Rose, 34, was leaving the Greg Berlanti produced CW superhero show after just one season — a rare move in TV. Usually, when a star exits a show, it’s for a tragic reason (e.g., when “Spartacus” star Andy Whitfield tragically passed away from cancer at age 39, causing Liam McIntyre to be re-cast) or it’s several seasons into a series, a la Jennifer Morrison exiting ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” after six seasons. A lead role departing after just one season with no clear cause is exceedingly unusual.


Rumors have swirled around Rose’s mysterious “Batwoman” exit. She sustained a serious back injury on set earlier in the year — though reportedly, that’s not why she left. An unnamed source told TV line that leaving was not entirely her choice.

“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,” they said.

Rose’s reps haven’t responded to The Post’s requests for comment.

The show marked Rose’s first starring role. Previously, she had side stints on shows such as “Orange is the New Black.”

“Batwoman” has already been renewed for a Season 2, and the production team has announced their commitment to replacing Rose with an actress who also identifies as LGBTQ. No replacement has been announced yet.
