Gotham Harley

Season three of Gotham will introduce a few new villains into the mix, including Killer Croc and a transformed Poison Ivy, but perhaps the biggest anticipation surrounds the inclusion of Harley Quinn - or at least a "prototypical" version of her character, as they called it during the announcement.

Executive Producers John Stephens and Ken Woodruff, along with Catwoman actress Camren Bicondova and Poison Ivy actress Maggie Geha, recently spoke with IGN about the popular character, and that while we will see the character in season three, fans very well might have already met her.

"You may have already seen Harley as a person that you thought you had met and known for a long time. So we always reserve the right to sort of do that as well," said Woodruff. To which Bicondova, who was standing beside Woodruff, reacted with a genuinely surprised, "Ummm, I didn't know that!"

Stephens added that Harley is a bit more complicated than Ivy or Croc, and that she does have connections to the Joker mythology they've setup in the show.

"The Harley Quinn of it all is a bit more of a sticky wicket but it's one we've already thought about for the character," Stephens said. "We don't want to give too much away but it will definitely be someone connected to the Joker cult world that we have set up. But it's down the road, later in Season Three right now."

It helps that Harley's best friend Poison Ivy is already on the show, and Geha couldn't be more excited about getting to share the screen with her.

"I would love, love, love, love to see Harley Quinn. In the comics she and Ivy and Harley Quinn are very close. In fact, I'm pretty sure in the comics they just formally announced that they're girlfriends. Just as an actor I would love it for them to bring Harley Quinn onto the show. I would love that. I hope they do one day. That would be great. It would be so much fun for me."

Gotham returns on September 9th.
