In a recent interview with Extratv.com, Jada Pinkett Smith spilled the beans about the future of her popular villainous character on Fox’s “Gothman”. The 43-year-old actress plays Maria Mercedes “Fish” Mooney, a former nightclub owner and mobster who led a gang under Don Falcone, whom she attempted to overthrow before being discovered and sent on the run.
Will Smith‘s wife revealed that she will not be returning for the second season, she said:
“We’re done. I did my year and I had a good time,”
The actress also teases that we can expect an epic ending to the first season:
“The show is going to have an awesome finale!” “You never know what Fish might have up her sleeve.”
She also mentioned that she enjoyed being part of the debut season:
“I’ve always been a comic book fan,” “so it was definitely a dream to be able to participate in an origin story of Batman with an original character. Who would of thought in a million years that I would have the opportunity to do that?”
The fact that Smith will not be around for season 2 shouldn’t come as a huge surprise because her character doesn’t appear in the DC source comics. Through “Fish” Mooney, Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) has been introduced, and for now, it seems she has fulfilled her purpose.
