The first season of Gotham was a huge success for Fox, enough that it got an early renewal for season 2. Now we weren’t at Fox’s Upfronts presentation yesterday, but thanks to social networking, we get all the news just as fast. IGN’s Eric Goldman tweeted during the presentation about a couple villains expected next season on Gotham!

Mr. Freeze will be a brand new face to the series, whether or not we’ve seen the joker yet is still up in the air. In the season 1 episode “The Blind Fortune Teller”, we were introduced to a character named Jerome, played by Shameless’ Cameron Monaghan. It was strongly hinted at that this character might be the clown prince of crime, but nothing has been officially confirmed.
In other Gotham news, Morena Baccarin has been promoted to series regular. The Firefly star joined the cast earlier this year as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, a love interest for James Gordon (Ben McKenzie).Gotham returns to television with season 2 this fall on Fox! In the meantime, if you’re a fan of the series we highly suggest you listen to Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Copplepot on Gotham) on the Nerdist Podcast.
