Jada Pinkett Smith plays the role of Fish Mooney, the original gangster of Gotham who gives Detective Gordon a run for his money. As for season two, though, Mooney’s fate is up in the air.

Smith recently sat down with Kelly and Michael, telling them, “I signed for a year and the year’s up.” FOX could extend the invitation for another year but, as of right now, the initial plan was to only have the character for the first season. Basically, it’s FOX who has to decide whether or not she will be returning and it sounds like she does want to return.

The Fish Mooney character was specifically drawn up  for the television series and is not from the comics, but she adds a certain sass and pizazz to the series. Mooney was written in as Oswald Cobblepot’s employer of a Gotham based night club. Yup, seems like a lot of DC characters are basing themselves out of nightclubs these days, how original.

In the meantime, casting notifications could take a short while since there are only a few more episodes left of the 23-episode season. Let us know if you want Fish to return for season two of Gotham!
