"Gotham" Showrunner Promises Answer to Jerome's Identity, How the Joker Came to Be

"Gotham" showrunner Bruno Heller revealed the show would both answer the riddle of Jerome's (Cameron Monaghan) identity and unravel the Joker myth during an interview with The Nerdist.

"We're going to be giving you concrete answers to his identity," Heller explained. "That story is going to come to a huge and shocking resolution which will explain the whole Joker myth and how it began and how the Joker came to be."

Additionally, Heller promises the Gotham City Police Department will undergo a big change in the wake of the Maniax Massacre. "As far as the GCPD goes, after the massacre, it's no more Mr. Nice Guy. They start using much more ferocious tactics that are going to lead to both positive results and tragic results that Gordon had not intended. There are big changes coming as a result of that horror."

He also revealed where fans would meet classic Batman villains Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze. "Something we're going to see this year is the underbelly of Wayne Enterprises, the Indian Hill bioengineering laboratory, the subterranean aspects of Wayne Enterprises. When we go there and see what they're doing down there, we're going to be introducing the great Dr. Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze."

Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and David Mazouz, "Gotham" airs Mondays at 8 pm EST on Fox.
