Per TVLine, one of the generally considered highlights of FOX’s hit series Gotham is saying good-bye.
Jada Pinkett Smith, who plays Falcone Crime Family Lieutenant and original character Fish Mooney on the Batman prequel series, told Extra the following about her possible return for the second season this fall:
We’re done, I did my year and I had a good time. The show is gonna [have] an awesome finale.
I know there’s going to be quite a few disappointed Fish-fans out there to hear this news, but as I understand it, in the second half of the season, her character has been relegated to the side-lines. So, perhaps this was just an eventuality.
From what little Gotham I’ve seen, Smith always seemed to be the one performer who knew what show she was on and was really able to channel that camp into something pretty fun to watch.
So long, and thanks for all the Fish! …I’ll see my way out.
