‘Gotham’ season 2 adds Michael Chiklis as GCPD hero to help Gordon

The popular Batman-inspired TV show, Gotham, is adding a veteran actor to the Gotham City Police Department  in Michael Chiklis.

Chiklis has joined Fox’s Gotham in a series regular role as Nathaniel Barnes, the tough new captain of the GCPD, according to TV Line.

Barnes “lands on the GCPD like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”

Executive producer Bruno Heller has said Season 2 will focus on “the rise of the villains,” which sends Gotham on a “decline into chaos.”

Chiklis is mostly remember for his Emmy performance, playing corrupt police officer Vic Mackey in The Shield, and starring as a police commissioner on the ’90s series The Commish.

Of course, fans also note that the actor played the Thing in the last big-screen adaptations of Fantastic Four.

Cory Michael Smith’s Nygma will take a more central role as he heads down the path to becoming the Riddler. At the 2015 Fox Upfront event in New York City, the audience was promised both the Joker (Cameron Monaghan) and Mr. Freeze will appear in season two.

Fans can also expect to see more of Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk), Harvey Dent (Nicholas D’Agosto) and Dr Leslie Thompkins (Morena Baccarin), after all three were promoted to series regulars.

Gotham Season 2 begins September 21 at 8 PM on Fox.
