Penguin & Selina Kyle Taking On Darker Characteristics For ‘Gotham’ S3

Season three of Fox’s Gotham is going to be very different compared to its predecessors. Characters we have come to know over the past two seasons will be embracing a darker and more complex tone. Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin) and Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle) recently opened up about how their characters will be evolving during season three and how fans should be fearing for Gotham City.

Bicondova expressed excitement for the change in her character because it feels very natural for Kyle.

“I think Selina is always exploring that without even knowing, because she has a genuine heart, she’s very loyal, and she’s very honest and intelligent. But I think just as natural as her good heartedness is her evilness. This season we’re actually going to be seeing her go down a darker path, and I’m so excited.”

Lord Taylor echoed the statements of Bicondova adding that Penguin will be reaching another level of evil and in season three because now nothing is holding him back.

“The great thing about this season is after last season, having the two people that he loves, in the entire world, taken away from him, he now has full license to go completely psychotic. There’s nothing holding him back. That’s sort of the overall theme of our show, about love and the loss of love, and to love someone is to be vulnerable.”

Bicondova warned, “Yeah, it’s a theme for pretty much every character on Gotham. You can’t be vulnerable in Gotham City.”

The Gotham Panel at San Diego Comic-Con went into depth about season three and the changes that are ahead. Read the full panel recap here.

Gotham Season 3 is set to begin on Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on FOX.
