Gotham returns for its third season tonight. What began as “Batman without Batman,” the story of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie)’s rise to commissioner in the Gotham City Police Department, has embraced its comic book roots. Season two featured “Rise of the Villains” and “Wrath of the Villains.” The third season’s “Mad City” promises to see Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) prepare to suit up and introduce characters like Valerie Vale (Jamie Chung) and an aged up Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha), with the Council of Owls enacting their machinations throughout the season.
We interviewed Gotham co-executive producer Ken Woodruff over the summer when he was on a panel for the Television Critics Association. Beginning with tonight’s season premiere, Woodruff discussed the plans for the third season. Hit the jump to read our Gotham Season 3 interview with Woodruff.
