With the second season of ‘Gotham‘ coming up Fox has released both an official synopsis as well as a video recap of the first season. When the season kicks off later this month it’s clear that we’ll not only see The Penguin having risen to the top of the food chain in Gotham’s criminal underworld but Gordon isn’t doing that well. Also we have a few new details on some of the newcomers to the show such as what Theo and Tabitha Galavan will be up to.

Before we get to that, let’s take a quick refresher of the first season of ‘Gotham which is seven minutes of the highlights of what Gordon and Batman’s future foes have been up to so far!

So now that the exploits of Gotham’s finest (and worst) are fresh in your mind, here is what we can expect going forward in a very extended Season 2 Synopsis:

Penguin is King of Gotham and after a shakeup at the GCPD, Detective James Gordon’s moral compass wavers, as he seeks help from Penguin. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne continues to explore the secrets from his father’s office, while GOTHAM newcomers Theo Galavan (James Frain) and his sister, Tabitha (Jessica Lucas), make friends with some unlikely allies, a group of dangerous inmates from Arkham in the all-new “Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do,…”

Season Two premiere episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, Sept. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GTH-201) (TV-14 L, S, V) Cast: Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Michael Chiklis as Detective Nathaniel Barnes, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the future Riddler, James Frain as Theo Galavan, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Nicholas D’Agosto as Harvey Dent, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Sarah Essen.

Guest Cast: Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, Peter Scolari as Commissioner Loeb, Anthony Carrigan as Victor Zsasz, James Andrew O’Connor as Tommy Bones, David Fierro as Zaardon, Cameron Monaghan as Jerome, Todd Stashwick as Richard Sionis, Will Brill as Arnold Dobkins, Stink Fisher as Aaron Helzinger, Dustin Ybarra as Robert Greenwood, Otto Sanchez as Odgen Barker, Philip Goodwin as Compere.

I’m not sure if I’m more interested in seeing the future batcave, the rise of the Joker, or the new villains from Bruce’s future rogue gallery being introduced.
