Batwoman's Renee Montoya To Be Played By Gotham's Renee Montoya
Batwoman Season 3 is set to premiere on The CW on October 13.
Actor Victoria Cartagena will be joining Season 3 of Batwoman, according to Deadline. Cartagena will take on the recurring role of Renee Montoya, the former Gotham City police officer, which she previously played in the Fox series Gotham.
Deadline describes Batwoman's version of the character as someone who "left the force when she could no longer stomach the corruption inside the department." Montoya is still trying to work within the system, running the "'freaks division,' which hasn't seen a lot of action… until now. Righteous and pragmatic, and LGBTQ+, she's a woman with a very personal (and mysterious) mission to help clean the streets of Gotham in the right way, by whatever means necessary."
It was also recently announced that Riverdale's Robin Givens is set to appear in Batwoman as Jada Jet, a new character created for the DC show. According to a previously released character synopsis, Jet is "a woman who has worked her way through life's ups and downs to climb her way to the top--all while being extremely protective over her impetuous son. A woman with a deep past that forced her to give up her first-born child, Jada is a woman with a good heart, but will do whatever it takes to protect her family."
Batwoman Season 3 premieres on The CW on October 13, with Javicia Leslie in the title role. Her character, Ryan Wilder, is the show's second Batwoman, with Ruby Rose having played Kate Kane in Season 1. The show will screen back-to-back with DC's Legends of Tomorrow each week, which is about to start its seventh season. The Flash also returns to The CW this fall, with Season 8 premiering on November 16.
