Fox has released a quartet of "Production Has Begun" promos, including snippets of Season 3 footage of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor).
Each snippet of footage is pretty intense. Gordon, who looks to be on the hunt, slowly walks into a dimly-lit room and then someone sneaks up behind Gordon, putting a gun to his head. Bullock and a large number of cops pour through a door with their guns drawn. Bruce Wayne's butler senses that an intruder is in Wayne Manor and grabs the nearest weapon: a sword. Lastly, The Penguin pulls a gun on someone and shuffles toward his target.
The origin story continues on GOTHAM, and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City.
With Season Two’s thrilling conclusion, Detectives Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city. Throughout the past season, Gordon’s moral compass wavered more than ever, as villains emerged from the city’s darkest places. With the help of Hugo Strange (guest star BD Wong), a brilliant psychiatrist secretly conducting horrifying experiments for Wayne Enterprises’ black-ops program, Indian Hill, familiar faces arose, including Azrael, formerly Theo Galavan (James Frain); Mr. Freeze (guest star Nathan Darrow); and Fish Mooney (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith). Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne, with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth, and his ally at Wayne Enterprises, Lucius Fox, found out there are more secrets to uncover regarding the Waynes’ murders.
Heading into Season Three, GOTHAM will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city’s most malevolent villains: The Penguin; Edward Nygma/The Riddler; Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman; and Barbara Kean. GOTHAM also will dive into the origin stories of The Mad Hatter and the Tweed Brothers, and will peel back the curtain on the Court of Owls.
Season 3 of Gotham will premiere on Monday, September 19th at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT.
