The city still needs saving

The young detective Jim Gordon is going to get another chance to track down the man who murdered Bruce Wayne's parents following Fox's announcement that it would be renewing Gotham for a third season.

David Madden, president of entertainment at Fox, said in a press release that Gotham's actors "brought the show to life" and "redefined these iconic characters for a new generation."

Gotham follows a rookie Jim Gordon as he tries to better the damaged city that has become overridden with deprived criminals. During his time, he also meets a cast of young men and women who audiences will know as various Batman characters — like Poison Ivy, Penguin, Riddler and Catwoman — but who have yet to come into those roles.

The show is currently in its second season and is exploring the madness behind Arkham Asylum. Gotham City's psychiatric supervillain Hugo Strange, played by guest star BD Wong, will also make his debut this season. Strange is one of Batman’s oldest foes, with his first appearance in comics predating the Joker and Catwoman.

Gotham airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
