‘Batwoman’: Robin Givens Joins Season 3 Of CW Drama As Series Regular

EXCLUSIVE: Robin Givens (Riverdale) has been tapped for a key role in the upcoming third season of the CW’s Batwoman.

Givens, a new series regular on the DC drama, will play Jada Jet. 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.
