Over the past few years, a number of comic book characters from the DC universe have made their way to the small screen, led by the Green Arrow-centric CW series Arrow. Among the new shows that made their debut last season was Gotham, a Fox series that focused on the early years of the city Bruce Wayne grew up in, shifting the focus to Jim Gordon instead and tracing his rise through the ranks. Developed by The Mentalist‘s Bruno Heller, the series soon earned a second season renewal from the channel.
Now two new trailers for the upcoming season have been released. Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Morena Baccarin, and Robin Lord Taylor are poised to return once again, with Jada Pinkett Smith departing from the series at the end of the first season. Michael Chiklis, Chris Chalk, James Frain, and Jessica Lucas join the cast for the second season, »

Jim Gordon may have had his hands full in Gotham‘s first season, but things are only going to get more dangerous for the future police commissioner this fall, as season two has been dubbed “Rise of the Villains.” Among the rogues that will roam the streets this year are Mr. Freeze (who has yet to be cast), a young Joker (Cameron Monaghan, reprising his role from last season), Tigress (newcomer Jessica Lucas) and her brother, Theo Galavan (James Frain).
A new teaser for the upcoming season has been released this week, showing brief glimpses of those mentioned above (with the exception of Freeze, unfortunately), as well as shots of returning foes like Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin, Cory Michael Smith’s Riddler and Anthony Carrigan as Victor Zsasz.

At Comic-Con earlier this month, co-stars Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard confided to Michael Ausiello that last season’s 21st episode — Aka Day’s swan song as Charlie — was shot out of sequence due to the actress’ busy schedule. And the rejiggering caused a few problems behind the scenes.
