First Look at the Villains Set to “Rise” on Season Two of Gotham

Poor James Frain. I'm sure he's actually a really nice guy IRL.


Gotham returns for Season Two toward the end of next month, but FOX is already rolling out some exciting new artwork, photos, and info on the new season, which is subtitled “Rise of the Villains.” The new art includes two new characters that will be taking up residence in Gotham City!


Poor James Frain. I’m sure he’s a really nice dude in real life, but he’s pretty much the villain in every geek story everywhere, from True Blood, to Grimm, to Agent Carter, to Orphan Black. Now, on Gotham, he’ll be playing Theo Galvan, a billionaire who has his own ideas about how Gotham City should be run. Oh, these villains always trying to save humanity from itself!


Jessica Lucas (Gracepoint) plays Galvan’s sister, Tabitha, whom DC Comics fans might know as the supervillain, Tigress. Both she and Frain will be joining as recurring characters on Gotham when the show returns September 21st.

And check out the most recent promo for Gotham S2, where you can see these villains in action!

What do you think of the new additions? Are you excited for Tigress?
