As the Gotham cast roster keeps growing and growing, so does our excitement for season 2 as we find out who’s signing on as whom. EW has brought us our first sneak peek of Michael Chiklis stepping on to the scene as Gotham City Police Department Captain Nathaniel Barnes.
Chiklis should feel right at home as Barnes, having already starred in seven seasons of the critically acclaimed crime drama The Shield, over on FX. Nathaniel Barnes will make his debut alongside Messrs. Bullock & Gordon in the GCPD precinct in the fourth episode of Gotham’s second season, entitled ‘Strike Force’; a moniker that references Chiklis’ unethical team of cops on The Shield.
Season 2 of Gotham premiers on FOX Monday, September 21st.
