    And the official series synopsis from CW:

    Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety.

    After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante.

    With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.

    My thought as well with that going away after season 8 - shortened and all.

    My speculation is that for the fall we'll get Flash and the final season of Arrow, and then in January Batwoman will take over Arrow's timeslot, Flash will resume, and Legends will begin its fifth season.

    Anything's possible, but given that he already plays the elder version of The Trickster in the Arrowverse, I would suspect not.

    Deathstroke and Joker would only ever have been occasional characters, though, so they could 'ban' them from the TV shows. The Flash was a main of a series that's, by all accounts, a moneymaker. They wouldn't cancel an ongoing show that's making them money over years.

    Besides that, Flash is only a fraction as popular as Batman.

    Honestly, no idea. I thought Gotham's first season was ridiculous (the bad kind of ridiculous), but I stuck it out....until the Season 2 premiere, which I thought was even more ridiculous than Season 1. I quit watching it at that point, so I really don't know what happened with it either in-universe or production-wise.

    They bought in Jeremiah and pretty much made him the Joker while never calling him the Joker, then suprise revealed he had a brother who he made crazy and he then took on the persona of the Joker but again never called himself the Joker...
