Gotham is returning on September 19th and new details continue to emerge about the season ahead, including a brand new look at Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) doppelganger.
The end of season two featured many of Hugo Strange’s villainous creations entering into the city, including an exact replica of Bruce Wayne, but with a very different hairstyle. It has been indicated that season three will focus on Wayne’s transformation into Batman and that his doppelganger will be causing problems.

Mazouz discussed playing two different characters with ComicBook.com and how the challenge has been extremely fun.
“In terms of fun, definitely the doppelganger has been more fun to play. I don’t want to give too much away, but this character is nothing like Bruce Wayne. The only similarity that they have is that they look shockingly like David Mazouz. Everything else about them, they think differently, they talk differently, they walk differently, they communicate differently. He’s pretty weird, the other guy.”
As previously reported, executive producer John Stephens discussed how season three will be a major change from the previous two seasons.
“In season three you’re really going to see how villains have taken up residence inside the city. The villains have become more and more a part of the fabric of the city of Gotham. It’s less and less a police show like it was in season one. It’s a natural continuation of that in season three.”
Gotham will be returning on Monday, Sept. 19th.
Gotham’s origin story continues to unfold, and as the show enters its third season, the stakes will be higher than ever! Super Villains are continuing to push Gotham City toward the brink, and while Jim Gordon remains at the forefront of the fight against crime in this dangerously corrupt city, how far will he go to save Gotham? Throughout season two, Gordon’s moral compass wavered more than ever, creating both personal and professional dilemmas in his life as villains emerged from the city’s darkest places, including Arkham Asylum’s secret experimental lab, Indian Hill. Bruce Wayne also began to unravel some of Gotham City’s — and his family’s — deepest secrets, leading him to discover that Wayne Enterprises could be behind some very dangerous schemes poised to tear the city apart. Be among the first to see what’s in store for season three as Gotham returns to Comic-Con with a special video presentation, followed by a Q&A with series stars and producers. From Warner Bros. Television and based on characters from DC, Gotham returns September 19 with all-new episodes airing Mondays at 8/7c on FOX. Gotham: The Complete Second Season will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD on August 16. Become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GOTHAMonFOX, and follow the show on Twitter at @Gotham.”
