Ruby Rose says that she is excited to see Javicia Leslie in action as her replacement on the new season of Batwoman.

Ruby Rose has revealed that she is excited to watch the second season of Batwoman with Javicia Leslie as her replacement.

The 34-year-old announced her shock departure from the show earlier this year and in response, producers have brought in Leslie as new character Ryan Wilder, who will adopt the Batwoman moniker from Rose's Kate Kane.

"I think she definitely knows what she's doing and she seems fantastic," Rose told EW of the new casting.

"I think that honestly, I was so proud and so happy when I was told who would be replacing me. I'm just really stoked and I'm definitely going to watch the next season as well and see how it all comes together."

Rose's decision to exit the series came amid reports that she was struggling to adjust to the pace of filming a network show but she insisted that there is no bad blood between her and the producers.

"Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough," she explained.

"You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do.

"I think for both [me and the producers], it was a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things. I respect them so much and they've been so respectful to me.

"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 honoured to have been able to play her."

The new season of Batwoman is due to premiere in early 2021.
