The Batwoman season 3 premiere is just less than a month away, so in an attempt to keep fans excited for the new batch of episodes, The CW has finally revealed the official poster for the show’s upcoming installment.
Unveiled on Thursday, the poster features Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) in her full Batwoman suit, standing outside of the gates of Arkham Asylum. Though the key art doesn’t give away much about what will happen in the new season, it’s definitely a nod to the Bat Team’s new quest, which is recovering all the gadgets of Batman villains that were accidentally released in Gotham at the end of the season 2 finale.

The poster reveal comes a day after The CW dropped a teaser trailer for the new season. The 15-second clip, which you can watch below, suggests that Alice (Rachel Skarsten) will be helping the Bat Team from prison Hannibal Lecter-style, as they try to find all the Batman villain artifacts that have gone missing.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly shortly after the season 2 finale aired last June, Leslie said that the show’s new direction in season 3 is “so freaking epic.” She explained: “Like literally a lot of your epic Batman villains, we have all of their weapons and they’ve all been released into the river and people are going to find [them] and you’re going to find the effects that these weapons have on these normal Gotham citizens and then becoming like these supervillains, and it’s just going to be so much fun. I can’t wait!”
Aside from the exciting premise, season 3 will also introduce a number of new characters onto the show, including Jada Jet (Robin Givens), Marquis Jet (Nick Creegan), Renee Montoya (Victoria Cartagena), and Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy (Bridget Regan).
Batwoman season 3 premieres on Wednesday, October 13th at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
