Gotham is putting a literal spin on the classic Fish out of water tale.
Jada Pinkett Smith has signed on to reprise her role as Fish Mooney for multiple Season 2 episodes, TVLine has learned exclusively.
A rep for the Fox drama confirmed Smith’s return but declined to provide details about how the crime boss will resurface.
Fish was last seen in the Batman prequel’s Season 1 finale getting pushed into a watery grave by the Penguin. At the time, showrunner Bruno Heller hinted that the villainess could live to see another day. “I would definitely not assume anything in a town like Gotham,” the EP warned. “It’s very unpredictable, the comic book world.”
Especially when the folks at Indian Hill are conducting such Strange experiments.
Gotham resumes its second season on Monday, Feb. 29.
