With the Season 3 premiere less than two weeks away, Fox has put out a series of Gotham promos today. The first two put the spotlight on Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon, but this third one puts the spotlight on Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (played by Robin Lord Taylor), showing how he will try to make his mark on Gotham City by publicly pledging to go after the escaped Indian Hill patients.
"Monsters have invaded Gotham," Cobblepot says in this latest promo. "And the police have done nothing. So now is my opportunity to create a legacy and make an indelible mark on this city. One my parents would be proud of."
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.
