Gotham has been one of the big success stories, ratings-wise at least, for Fox since its debut in the Autumn, but the first season finale is on the horizon and one of the show’s main players has hinted that it’s the end, at least for her.

Speaking to Live With Kelly And Michael (via Variety), Jada Pinkett Smith said that her mob queen Fish Mooney won’t be coming back for Season 2.

““I don’t think so, no,” she said. “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.”

She was certainly enthusiastic about the show and her time spent on it; “I get to play a character who gets to do extreme things. She’s evil — that’s always fun. I’m having a good time.”

The show’s producers released a statement saying that “Fish Mooney’s storyline takes a lot of interesting twists and turns into the finale of season one of Gotham.”

Fish has been one of the most important players in Gotham’s first season but she’s one of the very few original characters, so it’s not too much of a surprise to hear that she’s headed for the exit…
