Gotham is now on course for its 3rd Season this Autumn and Fox have released a new synopsis for it. The synopsis sets up the storylines for all of the key characters in the show as well as that it explains the transformation of the child Ivy Pepper, played by Clare Foley in the show’s first two seasons, to the adult Poison Ivy, played by Maggie Geha in Season 3.
Check out the synopsis below:
GOTHAM (Mondays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) The origin story continues on Season Three of 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.
Season Three will peel back the curtain on the infamous criminal organization known as the Court of The Owls. With the Indian Hill escapees on the loose, JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) must take matters into his own hands as a bounty hunter in Gotham. He makes it his mission to find HUGO STRANGE (guest star BD Wong), the mastermind behind the horrifying Indian Hill experiments, and FISH MOONEY (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith), one of Strange’s subjects. Meanwhile, GCPD Detective HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) and Captain NATHANIEL BARNES (Michael Chiklis) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in the monster-ridden city. Also, BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee), and former Wayne Enterprises employee, LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk), discovers there are still more secrets to uncover regarding his parents’ murders.
As the city sinks deeper into chaos, GOTHAM will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city’s most malevolent villains: THE PENGUIN (Robin Lord Taylor); EDWARD NYGMA/the future RIDDLER (Cory Michael Smith); SELINA KYLE/the future CATWOMAN (Camren Bicondova); BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards), TABITHA GALAVAN/TIGRESS (Jessica Lucas) and BUTCH GILZEAN (Drew Powell). The series also will catch up with the future POISON IVY (Maggie Geha), who, after an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, finds herself reborn as a young woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms; and will dive into the origin stories of JERVIS TETCH/MAD HATTER (Benedict Samuel), a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness; and the TWEED BROTHERS.
The synopsis does a fantastic job of creating anticipation for season 3 as well as give us an insight into what all the shows main characters will be getting up to. Season 2 done an excellent job of further developing the origin story’s of some of Batman’s most infamous rouges, so it is going to be great to see these characters be developed even further plus we get to see the origin of some new villains such as the Mad Hatter and Tweedle Dum/Tweedle Dee.
Hopefully towards the end of this season we might see Bruce Wayne take his first real step towards becoming the caped crusader as it is what the show is building towards. Either way, we can’t wait for the new season of Gotham to land this Autumn.
