Fish Mooney Won’t Return To “Gotham”

Executive producer John Stephens has confirmed that Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Fish Mooney won’t be returning to its Batman prequel series “Gotham”.

Mooney, a regular in the first season and an occasional guest star in the second and third, has seemingly died a few times now on the series, the most recent being the third season finale when a rage virus-controlled Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) shoved a sword through her stomach.

In a new interview with, Stephens shuts down theories of her return: “I’m afraid that’s it. Now, that one was it. At a certain point, you gotta say ‘Definitely.’ People die at a certain point, and that’s the second or third time they die [on Gotham].”

“Gotham” moves to Thursday nights this Fall starting from this week with the fourth season premiere.
