If you thought Gotham had already taken a nose dive right into the deep end of Batman’s future rogues gallery, you’ve got another thing coming. The show may be on winter hiatus right now, but will hit the ground running when it returns in early January and opens the creaky gates of Arkham Asylum.
Jim Gordon was transferred to Arkham in the mid-season finale, and is sure to meet up with a host of familiar inmates while he’s there. Today, Fox released a handful images from the mid-season premiere, “Rogues’ Gallery,” as well as a description of the episode, and they both promise exciting things to come.
Gotham will return on January 5th on FOX. Check out the screens and description below and let us know if you’ll be tuning in.
