Batwoman has welcomed another new cast member to its ranks! Bridget Regan joins the season 3 cast as the villain Poison Ivy! She will be a recurring guest star. She joins previously announced Robin Givens, Nick Creegan, and Victoria Cartagena.
Pamela Isley (a.k.a Poison Ivy) is a former botany student at Gotham University. She is a brilliant and passionate scientist. She plans to change the world. When a colleague experiments on her with plant toxins, those plans go out the window. Now, as Poison Ivy, she uses a dangerous and twisted mindset to do what she still believes is right.
The season 2 finale teased the arrival of Poison Ivy. Earlier in the season, Circe stole several items that belonged to villains from the bat cave. Among them was one of Poison Ivy’s vines. By the end of the season 2 finale, the items are lost to the river or washed up on land. The final shot focuses on Poison Ivy’s vine creeping its way up a small hill.
Thanks to this cliffhanger, it’s likely viewers can expect an early season introduction from Regan. As she’s recurring, and Poison Ivy is a force to be reckoned with, there’s no doubt she will cause major problems for the Bat Team. We can’t wait to meet her!
Batwoman returns on Wednesday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on The CW. Catch up on seasons 1 and 2 now on HBO Max. Find all our coverage on the show here.
