Fish Mooney

In an interesting twist, one of the original creations for the Gotham TV series may not live past season 1. Fish Mooney, portrayed by Jada Pinkett Smith, instantly made an impact on the show, and has been a driving force in many ways throughout the season. Now, Smith has revealed that she’s NOT coming back for Season 2 of the hit show.

“I don’t think so,” she admitted when asked by the hosts whether she is coming back. “I signed for a year and the year’s up. BUT! There are some great things coming ahead on Gotham, believe you me.”

To be clear, this doesn’t mean her character will die, though that is certainly possible. Smith had this to say on the matter:

“Well, it’s not quite over yet but we’ll see if Fish survives the season,” the actress told reporters. “It’s a little tense from here on out, that’s for sure. It’s a little rough on Fish from here on out.”
