"Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough," Rose told Entertainment Weekly last August. "But I think, in that particular instance, it was a lot more difficult because I was still recovering from my surgery. I had my surgery and then 10 days later I went to work, which maybe wasn’t the best idea. Most people take about a month or three off before they return to work."
She added that the quarantine gave her time to reflect on what she wanted to do and "have a dialogue" with producers.
"I respect them so much and they've been so respectful to me," she said of the creative team behind Batwoman. "I think it was actually a beautiful way to do something, especially since that was the first time it's ever been done -- the first time Batwoman has ever been played in live-action and that she was LGBTQ. I'm very honored to have been able to play her."
After Rose's exit, the character of Kate Kane was written off and presumed dead following a plane crash. In season 2, actress Javicia Leslie played Ryan Wilder, a woman who takes on the role of Batwoman. The return of Kate Kane will not affect Ryan Wilder playing Batwoman as she won't be taking on the mantle of the female superhero.
