Executive producer and writer of Gotham, John Stephens, teased the fate of not-the-Joker Jerome during the show’s panel at this weekend’s New York Comic Con. The character (played by actor Cameron Monaghan), had been seemingly killed off during last week’s episode, leaving Gotham fans with the distinct impression that he would not be returning.


Stephens dispelled these fears with the following statement:

“If you watch the episodes closely, as they go forward this year you’ll start seeing the seeds of the way that story will continue to develop and we probably have not seen the last of that fellow.”

Gotham and Jerome fans, rejoice! He may be the Joker you deserve yet!

  1. I didn’t think we’d seen the last of Jerome. I mean think about it…he was killed onstage WHILE PERFORMING A MAGIC SHOW! That immediately struck me as his “death” being just a trick, and that he will be back (hopefully soon).

    Also, I need to say that I am really enjoying season 2…a pleasant surprise, since I didn’t really like season 1 all that much. Focusing more on the villains is definitely the way to go.

  2. He died with a smile on his face. To me that is enough of a clue. He is the joker! I hope I am right. I can’t see anyone else pulling off the early Joker that well. NOBODY!!!
