The CW just added another three series for the 2019-20 season!

If you were betting that women would be the newest heroes of The CW, pat yourself on the back.

Batwoman, Katy Keene, and Nancy Drew will all be flying high on the network.

Welcome, Batwoman!

We've already seen a bit of what Batwoman can do during the massive crossover event last fall.

With Ruby Rose as the titular character aka Kate Kane, she mixed it up with the Arrow team to help save the world.

In addition to Rose, the cast also includes Dougray Scott as Kate's father, Jacob, a former military colonel who helms Gotham's private Security firm The Crows.

His mission is to protect Gotham better than the Dark Knight ever could, while his daughter, as we know, is a highly trained street fighter and tasked with snuffing out the failing city's criminal resurgence.

Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez — and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.

Newcomer Kennedy McMann plays Nancy Drew in the third incarnation of this popular series to try to make it to air. Congrats!

The CW Quotes

Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.

Mrs. Burble: Ms. Smith, Betty’s education, her relationship, her behavior, I think those thinks make you afraid. Afraid that Betty is growing; that may even be why you gave away her college money. Because if you can control her, you can hold onto her childhood just a little bit longer. Does that sound about right?
Alice: It’s just I’ve already lost two children. First Charles, then Polly, and now Betty. Growing up, leaving for college, moving out, moving on … it just feels like I’m losing you too.
Betty: Mom, that’s what happens. Kids grow up and they leave; I can’t be your only hope.
Alice: But I love you.
Betty: I love you too, but that’s not an apology. That does not justify the horrible, unhealthy things that you have done. How you keep suffocating me. And why me? Why are you doing these things to me?
Alice: Because I love you.
Betty: But you love Polly too! She’s in an asylum. She needs you; she needs your help. So, why can’t you do this to her?
Alice: Because I love you more! I love you most!
[Alice is shocked and runs away from the therapy session]
