Robin Givens has joined the cast of Batwoman.
Best known to The CW viewers for her recurring role as Sierra McCoy in Riverdale, Givens will play the series regular role of Jada Jett in season 3 of Batwoman.
As revealed earlier this month, Jada is the CEO of Jet Industries. An impassioned, industrious, and powerful woman who has worked her way to the top, Jada is exceptionally protective of her reckless and at times menacing son, Marquis Jet. Though Jada has a deep past that forced her to give up her first child, she has a good heart and will do anything to protect her family.
At the end of Batwoman season 2 finale, Alice (Rachel Skarsten) revealed that Ryan Wilder’s (Javicia Leslie) biological mother, who was believed to have died in childbirth, is in fact alive. And since Jada’s character description indicated that the character was forced to give up her first-born child, there’s a possibility that she could be Ryan’s biological mother. If that turns out to be true, then Ryan actually comes from a wealthy family and has a brother named Marquis.
While Jada could be a completely new character in the DC lore, some comic book fans have speculated that she could be a version of Jezebel Jet. In the Batman comic books in the mid-2000s, Jezebel was introduced as a supermodel love interest for Bruce Wayne and later revealed to be an undercover agent of Black Glove.
In addition to her 2017-2019 stint in Riverdale, Givens also played the series regular role of Stephanie Carlisle on OWN’s drama series Ambitions. Her other notable TV credits include UPN’s Sparks, CBS’ Courthouse, ABC’s Head of the Class, and many others. Givens is set to reprise her role of Darlene Merriman in the upcoming HBO Max revival of Head of the Class.
Batwoman season 3 is scheduled to premiere on October 13th at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
