Shivani Ghai is on her way to Gotham City to stir the pot for both Alice and the new Batwoman.

During the course of season 1 of Batwoman there were multiple references to Safiyah. She eventually had the Wonderland gang wiped out while having a note left for Alice (Rachel Skarsten) that read, “Did you think I would forget? – Your friend from Coryana.”

In the comics, Safiyah had a history with Kate Kane (formerly played by Ruby Rose), but the series decided to switch it over to Alice.

A description of the character provided to TV Line reads, “A woman with as many enemies as aliases, she is compassionate and charismatic with both physical and psychological prowess. She is beloved by her people and will stop at nothing to protect what’s hers. No one goes unnoticed by Safiyah, specifically when it comes to those who have encountered the Desert Rose.”

Season 2 will see a lot of changes for the Batwoman series, namely the introduction of Javicia Leslie as the new Batmwoman and how that will work with all of the other already established characters.

There will be a Batwoman panel at the Sept. 12 edition of DC FanDome, hopefully, we will learn more at that time.

Batwoman is slated to return to the CW in Jan. 2021.
