GOTHAM is back for its second season on Monday, September 21st, and — as the marketing has been touting — it’s all about the villains.

With Fish gone, a whole new crop of villains are here to play. Jerome (who made quite an impact in his season 1 hours) is a player in a big way, and he’s joined by freshly turned bad girl, Barbara, as well as newbies Tabitha and Theo Galavan.

I had the chance to watch the first two episodes of GOTHAM’s second season, and have a few teases to tide you over until the show’s premiere…

GOTHAM season 2 will pit Jim Gordon up against, arguably, his most dangerous foe: his ex-fiancée, Barbara.

Earlier in the series, it seemed like Jim and Barbara were set to follow their comics counterparts: marriage, and perhaps a child. (And likely a divorce.) But with Barbara snapping after her encounter with the Ogre at the end of season 1 — and her subsequent murder of her parents, plus attack on Jim’s new girlfriend, Leslie — the show has firmly deviated from the comics.

“He will deal with her gingerly, with great care,” GOTHAM star Ben McKenzie (Jim) told reporters at Comic-Con. “She’s the closest person [to him] that has gone full-on bad guy…and that doesn’t go away; she doesn’t get less crazy as we go into season 2….[and] when she is that personally invested in destroying him, specifically, and knows him better than anyone, what is she willing to do to get what she wants? Having a psycho ex-girlfriend is scary.”

Check out what else McKenzie told reporters…

GOTHAM viewers got their first taste of Jim Gordon in the pilot, and the man has bitten off quite possibly more than he can chew: Gordon promised Bruce Wayne that he’d find out who killed the young man’s parents.

But there is one person who saw what went down with the Waynes’ murder: Selina Kyle.

I spoke with GOTHAM star Ben McKenzie about Jim’s relationship with Selina, the weight of his promise to Bruce, doing those action scenes, and more…

This fall, Fox will be diving into the origin story of James Gordon and the (future) criminals and heroes of Gotham City in the new drama, GOTHAM.

Check out photos from the pilot, gallery pictures, the show’s official description, and check back soon for a trailer (Fox previously released this extended trailer, but it’s TBA whether this is the same one they’ll show at the Upfronts today)…

GOTHAM: GOTHAM traces the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and starring Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”) and Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”), GOTHAM follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. GOTHAM will air Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) this fall on FOX.
