Batwoman and Nancy Drew have received full-season pick up at the CW.

Batwoman, stars Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, a cousin of the Dark Knight who happens to be a homosexual, while Nancy Drew, a contemporary spin on the popular book series by Carolyn Keene, features Kennedy McMann as the intrepid young sleuth.

According to Deadline, the full-season orders come after three airings each for both the shows.

Batwoman premiered on 6 October and Nancy Drew started airing from 9 October.

With her role in the series, Rose plays the first openly gay superhero to headline a TV series.

A stand-alone series about Batwoman, whose real name is Kate Kane, was in development for the 2019-20 TV season. In it, Kane is described as a highly-trained street fighter with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.

Rose wrote 7 August on Instagram that she's "thrilled and honored" and "an emotional wreck" over the news of her casting. As a young, gay person, she never felt represented on TV.
