Deadline has revealed that Robin Givens has been cast in Batwoman Season 3 as a series regular, playing a new character called “Jada Jet” — and judging from the character description, we’re pretty sure this would be Ryan Wilder’s birth mother.
Here’s the official description for the character that Deadline had posted:
A powerful CEO for Jet Industries, Jada isn’t bossy: she’s the boss. Passionate and hard working, a woman who has worked her way through life’s ups and downs to climb her way to the top — all while being extremely protective over her impetuous son. A woman with a deep past that forced her to give up her first-born child, Jada is a woman with a good heart, but will do whatever it takes to protect her family.
Givens is best known to CW audiences as Josie McCoy’s mother, former Mayor Sierra McCoy, on Riverdale. For those of us old enough to remember, she was one of the standouts on the original Head of the Class and she will be appearing in the show’s upcoming HBO Max revival.
Batwoman Season 3 is headed our way Wednesday, October 13 on The CW.
