‘Gotham’ season 2: Jada Pinkett Smith to return as Fish Mooney

While fans of Gotham were certain they had seen the last of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney after a tragic end to wrap up season one, news has it that the villainess will be returning in some way in season 2.

Fox has confirmed to TVLine that Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney will be back for “multiple” episodes of season two.

The character was last seen getting pushed off a warehouse and into a watery grave by her former protégé, Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), but like many superhero shows or characters, there really is no death.

Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller have previously hinted that Fish could be back on the show.

“I would definitely not assume anything in a town like Gotham,” TVLine quotes Heller as saying last year. “It’s very unpredictable, the comic book world.” And asked whether Fish was really dead in a season one post-mortem interview, Pinkett Smith teased, “That’s for the fans to determine. You saw the ending. She could be and she couldn’t be. Who knows? It was an interesting ending.”

Some reports point out that Fish may be back for flashbacks, though the fact that she’s involved in multiple episodes suggest something more substantial than a simple cameo. It seems more likely her return will have something to do with the mysterious and ominous Indian Hill facility, run by Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong), as was hinted at in the midseason finale.

In any case, Gotham returns to Fox February 29.
