Check out the first image of Gotham’s all new Poison Ivy! This fall sees the return of the Batman backstory show – Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is growing up … and he’s not the only one!

The Ivy we have seen so far, played by Clare Foley, was a little kid – younger than Bruce for sure. Selena Kyle (Camren Bicondova) acted not only as a friend to her, but a mentor too … we may well see that relationship in reverse!

Foley has been replaced by Maggie Geha (Ted 2, In Stereo), an all grown up version of the character. The marketing hasn’t taken any time at all to sexualise her either – which makes me wonder: did they age her up specifically because in the comic books Ivy’s a typically “sexy” character? At least they haven’t put Selena in a catsuit –  yet.

The new season 3 synopsis released by FOX gives us an explanation for this recast: 

“The series also will catch up with the future POISON IVY (Maggie Geha), who, after an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, finds herself reborn as a young woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms.”

Here’s a look at what we’ve got in store: 

“Season Three will peel back the curtain on the infamous criminal organization known as the Court of The Owls. With the Indian Hill escapees on the loose, JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) must take matters into his own hands as a bounty hunter in Gotham. He makes it his mission to find HUGO STRANGE (guest star BD Wong), the mastermind behind the horrifying Indian Hill experiments, and FISH MOONEY (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith), one of Strange’s subjects. Meanwhile, GCPD Detective HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) and Captain NATHANIEL BARNES (Michael Chiklis) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in the monster-ridden city. Also, BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee), and former Wayne Enterprises employee, LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk), discovers there are still more secrets to uncover regarding his parents’ murders.”

Not to mention the return of all our favourite villains. Ivy is not the only new face we’ll see! Jervis Tetch ,.aka the Mad Hatter will be making an appearance, as well as the infamous Tweed brothers!

Gotham returns September 19th on FOX!
