Gotham is heading into its third season this fall which is looking to be a huge year for the Batman prequel drama on FOX as the series is introducing the Mad Hatter as well as the Court of Owls, which was briefly introduced in the second season and will now emerge to a larger role in Season 3. During the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, Collider spoke with co-executive producer Ken Woodruff about what’s coming in the third season.
When asked about how the presence of the Court of Owls will be towards both the heroes and the villains, Woodruff teased the following.
“What’s interesting about the Court of Owls is that it operates, weirdly, in the best interest of Gotham, or in the best interest of themselves. Sometimes those interests are counter to the heroes of Gotham, but sometimes they’re aligned with them. So, what’s nice about a group like the Court of Owls is that you can really keep their motivations and actions mysterious. You never know, from one move to the next, if they’re going to be aiding these villains, banding them together and helping them, or are they going to feel like these villains are gaining too much power and throwing off the balance in Gotham. That’s the most interesting part about it. They can really play God and act as the devil.”
Gotham Season 3 is set to begin on Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on FOX.
