Gotham is lining up several key characters (in addition to bringing back a few regulars) for season 2, as Gordon says goodbye to Fish Mooney, and takes on new villains, and a couple of new allies too.
Joining the cast this year in villainous roles are James Frain and Jessica Lucas as brother and sister team Theo & Tabitha (aka Tigress) Galavan.
Described as sexy and violent, Tabitha is the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making. Theo meanwhile is a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over the city.
Michael Chiklis has also signed on to play Captain Nathaniel Barnes. Barnes lands on the Gotham City Police Department like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of the city’s police force. He is a law-and-order zealot; unafraid of making enemies on either side of the law.
For Gordon (Ben McKenzie) he is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon (Ben McKenzie), but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.
In addition to our series regulars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue, as Harvey Bullock, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean and Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, we will see more of Nicholas D’Asgosto as Harvey Dent (aka Two Face), Chis Chalk as Lucius Fox, Morena Baccarin as Dr. Lesie Thompkins and Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean.
Gotham traces the rise of the great DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes, revealing a new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller, the series, now entering its second season follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
