After inexplicably releasing the photos from the second episode of Season 3 first, FOX has now debuted 18 photos from the Gotham Season 3 premiere. Check them out in the gallery below, along with a whole slew of new previews and clips for the episode.
Titled “Better to Reign in Hell,” the Gotham Season 3 premiere is officially described as follows:
“Gordon works in a monster-ridden Gotham as a bounty hunter and seeks to find answers about the Indian Hill escapees, and why their powers appear to be killing them. Meanwhile, Bruce’s doppelganger roams the streets, and Barbara and Tabitha open a new nightclub called The Sirens.”
Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward nygma/the future Riddler, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, and Jamie Chung as Valerie Vale, the aunt of future Batman love interest Vicki Vale.
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.”
The Gotham Season 3 premiere airs September 19 at 8 PM ET on FOX.
