Jada Pinkett Smith's gangster villainess Fish Mooney has been stealing scenes since Gotham started, but not for much longer, according to Smith herself during an interview on Live With Kelly and Michael.
Smith won't be back for Season 2, she told the hosts, according to Variety.
“I don’t think so, no. I signed for a year, and the year is up. But, there are some great things coming ahead on ‘Gotham’ — believe you me, there’s a lot of good stuff coming,” Smith said.
One thing she didn't explain was why? Maybe she's ready to move on to other projects, maybe negotiations for a new contract fell through and maybe Fish Mooney is going to be killed off.
The shows producers might not have been expecting Smith to drop the news, but released a vague statement that didn't clear up anything:
“Gotham’s” producers released a statement on Smith’s bombshell through the show’s reps: “Fish Mooney’s storyline takes a lot of interesting twists and turns into the finale of season one of ‘Gotham.'”
This is the comics books universe we're talking about, though, so nobody's necessarily ever really dead or gone permanently.
