Gotham is returning for the second series – At 10pm from Monday 11th January 2016
Coming soon to Channel 5, the origin story continues on GOTHAM: RISE OF THE VILLAINS. 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.
Detective Jim Gordon (series star BEN McKENZIE) and the ethically questionable veteran Detective Harvey Bullock (series star DONAL LOGUE) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city. While confronting Gotham’s most notorious criminals, Gordon’s moral compass begins to waver. But he is taken under the wing of Nathaniel Barnes (new series star MICHAEL CHIKLIS), a law-and-order zealot who is unafraid of making enemies. Meanwhile, Gordon continues his quest to gain the trust of the young Bruce Wayne (series star DAVID MAZOUZ), who is on a clear path towards the man he is destined to become, after discovering his father’s deepest secrets, with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth (series star SEAN PERTWEE) and newfound ally at Wayne Enterprises, Lucius Fox (new series regular CHRIS CHALK).
In the epic turf war that occurred at the conclusion of Season One, The Penguin (series star ROBIN LORD TAYLOR) battled his way into power over Gotham’s underworld. Heading into Season Two, GOTHAM will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city’s most malevolent villains: Edward Nygma/The Riddler (series star CORY MICHAEL SMITH), whose transformation from Gotham PD’s forensic expert to psychologically unhinged villain continues; Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman (series star CAMREN BICONDOVA), whose hard-knock existence propels her into a life of crime; and the increasingly unstable Barbara Kean (series star ERIN RICHARDS), who is out for Gordon and his girlfriend, Dr. Leslie Thompkins (series star MORENA BACCARIN). Also hoping to leave his mark on the city is Theo Galavan (new series regular JAMES FRAIN), the billionaire industrialist, who appears to be the savior for whom Gotham has been waiting. Theo, along with his sister and lead enforcer, Tabitha Galavan aka Tigress (new series regular JESSICA LUCAS), keep their centuries-old vendetta hidden, as they manipulate their way to power.
