Deadline shared a new trailer for “Gotham” season 4, with lots of new footage from the first episodes of the new season (after a recap of the previous season). It is seriously amazing, and also full of spoilers (you’ve been warned). Watch the video below:
I won’t add screen captures to the gallery, since we won’t have long to wait to see all of this awesomeness on screen. “Gotham” season 4 premieres Thursday, September 21, at 8/7c, on FOX.
Take a look at the latest teasers for “Gotham” season 4, before the show returns this Thursday, September 21, at 8/7c, on FOX.
Now for the spoilers. TV Guide published a little peek at how Ra’s al Ghul will impact Bruce this season:
The Scoop: Ra’s al Ghul (Alexander Siddig) is back in the fold, returning to help put the finishing touches on Bruce’s transition into becoming Batman in Season 4. The famed leader of the League of Assassins will “snap” the last twig of Bruce’s innocence, as Siddig puts it, plunging the young man further down the dark path to becoming his vigilante alter ego. “My character has been on a centuries long mission to locate Bruce and finally finds him, and will do anything he can to get his hands on him, to manipulate him into what [Ra’s] wants him to be,” Siddig says. “That is going to be Bruce’s biggest challenge. Just how dark will he go? How far is he prepared to follow Ra’s al Guhl?” According to the actor, Season 4 is going to be “a season so far of extremes” – so get ready for things to get even darker on “Gotham”.
Is “Gotham’s” Lucius Fox the one making Bruce’s armor? — Mae Anne
You just evoked the name of executive producer Danny Cannon’s “favorite character”! “Yes, Lucius is beginning to suspect that Alfred and Bruce might have a double life and politely weaves his way in,” Cannon said when I hand-delivered your Q. “Lucius has worked for Wayne Industries and he may work there again one day, and for right now he doesn’t want to see Bruce get hurt. So he finds a way of helping without interfering.”
Here they are! HQ stills from the season 4 premiere of “Gotham”, “Pax Penguina”, have been added to the gallery:

TVLine published spoilers about the new season of “Gotham”, as well as the very first still from episode 1, “Pax Penguina”. Click the thumbnail to see the full picture in the gallery, and read more below:
Season 4 of the DC Comics drama, says exec producer Danny Cannon, is “focusing on character more than anything else” — namely, how Jim Gordon, Penguin and other established characters react to Bruce Wayne’s coming of age: “Somebody who until now has been seen as a wealthy child is now seen as the emerging threat he is.” As Bruce faces that future, watch for Alfred to vie for mentorship of his ward with Ra’s al Ghul. (“An almost amoral figure from such a dark and ancient past coming into Bruce’s life when he is so susceptible to influence gives us lots of drama,” Cannon notes.) Jim’s world meanwhile will be rocked by no less than a return, a new love and new, canon DC villains — such as Scarecrow, Professor Pyg (“Fringe’s” Michael Cerveris), Toymaker and Solomon Grundy né Butch Gilzean — just as Penguin’s plan to “legitimize crime” steers Gotham into a(nother) spiral.
BONUS SPOILER!: Selina’s alliance with Tabitha is all part of “building up the Sirens’ origin story,” Barbara and Ivy included, says Cannon. “We’ll be watching Selina turn into a woman, but what kind of woman will she be? Vengeful and resentful, or somebody of amazing potential?”
RETURN DATE: Thursday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c (Fox)
TVLine decided to take a trip down memory lane with a video looking back at Bruce and Selina’s relationship throughout the first three seasons of “Gotham”. Watch the video below:
And there’s more to come in season 4:
As executive producer Danny Cannon noted during our in-depth Fall Preview Q&A, “You have two independent people going on their own path. Both parentless, both orphans to a certain extent.” But because Selina was left completely alone to her own devices, whereas Bruce enjoys a life of privilege and support from Alfred, “something hardens within her as she ages.”
Even so, “We know there’s always a good side to her that will find a kinship with Bruce, an attraction to Bruce, that we can’t stop playing with,” the EP adds. “It’s just too delicious.”
We won’t have to wait long for more. “Gotham” season 4 premieres September 21, at 8/7c, on FOX.
