Villains rise and laugh in latest Gotham season 2 trailer

As Detective Jim Gordon might (and does) say, it’s a new day—which means it’s time for another reminder about the plethora of villains and seeming dearth of heroes in Gotham season two. There isn’t much in this trailer that we’re not already aware of, but there’s a lot of Jerome (Cameron Monaghan), so it’s not all bad.

We’ll insist on going over the list of baddies the way your waiter trudges through rattling off the specials: there’s Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Tigress a.k.a. Not-Catwoman (Jessica Lucas) and her brother Theo (James Frain), Soon-To-Be-Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), that Edward Nygma guy (Corey Michael Smith), and of course, Monaghan’s Jerome doing his best Heath Ledger impression. There’s also a pro-Gotham guy in a straitjacket, and then there’s Barbara (Erin Richards).


On the bright side, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) seems undaunted by this growing list of enemies, practically chest-bumping Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara). He’s not going to take this lying down, which is all fine and good—but where the hell is Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue)?

Gotham season two premieres September 21 on Fox.
