Steel yourselves! The Mad Hatter is coming to Fox’s Gotham when the show returns for a third season this Fall.
The Network dropped first details today on upcoming DC villain Jervis Tetch, a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness, who many will recognize as a former villain on another hit genre show.
Played by Benedict Samuel, Tetch is scheduled to arrive in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.
If the name sounds familiar, it might be because Benedict Samuel’s most recent role was as the unhinged “Wolf” in AMC’s The Walking Dead. The Wolf brought chaos to Alexandria, but also saved the life of doctor Denise at the expense of his own.
Samuel also recently played the male lead in the Australian miniseries The Beautiful Lie, and appeared in the Robert Zemeckis-directed feature The Walk. He will next be seen in The Stanford Prison Experiment, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
Gotham returns to Fox on Monday September 19 at 9/7c.
