The season threw light on the dangerous experiments being carried out by Hugo Strange (B.D Wang) for the black ops program of Wayne Enterprise.
Bruce Wayne, along with his butler and mentor, Alfred Pennyworth and friend, Lucious Fox, try and uncover more secrets about the Wayne murders. This was the central premise for the second season of Gotham.
The upcoming season will see some malevolent villains coming into the seen. The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman and Barbara Kean are going to make an appearance in Gotham Season 3.
International Business Times has reported that the series is also going to throw more light on the story of the Mad Hatter and the Court of Owls. Benedict Samuel has been cast as the Mad Hatter in Season 3 of Gotham. The character has been borrowed from the classic tale, Alice in Wonderland and the villain has borrowed his name from Lewis Carroll’s Mad Hatter.
The Mad Hatter’s real name is Jervich Tetch, and he is searching for his sister, Alice, which has got him into Gotham in Season 3. The original comic book story talks about him kidnapping young girls; he believed to be “Alice,” to become a part of his tea-parties. The Mad Hatter is considered to be bordering on madness.
TV Line reported that the character description of the Mad Hatter talks about him having a history of Arkham Asylum. He also suffers from schizophrenia, delusions, and obsessive compulsive disorder. He might not start the series in an asylum, but he is surely going to be a crazy force to reckon with Gotham Season 3.
