Penguin rises in popularity after criticizing the work of the GCPD and Bruce’s investigation of the Court of Owls is compromised. Meanwhile, Ivy Pepper (Maggie Geha) is reintroduced into Gotham City.”

New villains from the Batman lore are set to be present for the new season including The Court of Owls, Mad Hatter (The Walking Dead‘s Benedict Samuel), Solomon Grundy, and more. In addition, the new season will also see Poison Ivy undergoing a change with the character now set to be played by Maggie Geha, taking over for Clare Foley who played the character in the first two seasons of the series. It was revealed that the character finds herself “reborn as a 19-year-old woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms and sets her sights on Bruce Wayne.”
