Gotham has earned a third season as just announced by Fox. The dramatic series based on DC Comics characters has been averaging 9 million viewers over season two and is, according to Fox, one of the top five broadcast dramas among men ages 18 through 49. The series stars Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Morena Baccarin as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth. The cast also includes Robin Lord Taylor as The Penguin, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, and Michael Chiklis as Nathaniel Barnes.

“It takes a very special team to tell the tales of Gotham. For the past two seasons, Bruno, Danny and John have masterfully honored the mythology of Gotham and brought it to life with depth, emotion and memorable high drama,” said Fox Broadcasting Company President of Entertainment David Madden. “This incredibly talented cast has redefined these iconic characters for a new generation, and we couldn’t be more proud of this show.”

Details on Gotham Season 2’s Upcoming Episodes: In the all-new episode “Wrath of the Villains: Mad Grey Dawn,” airing Monday, March 21 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Gordon (McKenzie) and Bullock (Logue) investigate a trail of clues left in a museum robbery, which, unbeknownst to them, were left by Nygma (Smith) in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse. Meanwhile, Gordon’s past comes back to haunt him when an anonymous person threatens to expose his hand in Galavan’s murder. Also, Penguin’s (Taylor) visit to some old friends leads him to meet his father, Elijah Van Dahl (guest star Paul Reubens), and Bruce (Mazouz) practices his street smarts.

Later this season, villains continue to invade Gotham, as Arkham Asylum and the mysteries it holds take center stage, as Hugo Strange’s (guest star BD Wong) wild experiments create even more chaos and legendary villains.
