Gotham Season 2 Announced for Home Video
Gotham: The Complete Second Season will be available on DVD ($49.99 suggested retail price) and Blu-ray ($54.97) on August 16. The season consists of 22 episodes, plus the following extras:
- Gotham: 2015 Comic-Con Panel: Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2015
- Gotham by Noir Light: Gotham is deeply cast into the film noir technique and edgy attitude. The camera’s lens is able to pick up on the subtlety for the fans to enjoy a modern update to an age old tradition, of how to paint with shadow and light.
- Alfred: Batman’s Greatest Ally: This story is about Gotham‘s take on the father/son bond between Bruce Wayne and his butler Alfred. The depth of the mythology from the comic books comes to life on the series.
- Cold Hearted — The Tale of Victor Fries: The mix of cold blood and a warm heart. We examine the humanistic melt-down of Victor Fries in pursuit of a cure for his love, Nora.
- Character featurettes
The press release also mentions deleted scenes and a gag reel. Here’s a description of the season:
Darkness saturates Gotham in its triumphant second season as the city’s villains continue to rise from the shadows, each more ambitious and depraved than the last. As Penguin continues to solidify his control over Gotham’s underworld, the battle for power in the city has become a game of interesting alliances on both sides of the law — with detectives Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock at the forefront of the fight against crime in the dangerously corrupt city. Season Two witnesses Gordon’s moral compass wavering as he confronts Gotham City’s most notorious criminals while simultaneously attempting to gain the trust of young Bruce Wayne, a boy now clearly on the path toward the man he is destined to be. And all the while, Gotham follows the intriguing origin stories and evolution of some of the city’s most infamous personalities, including Edward Nygma/The Riddler, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Hugo Strange, and Mr. Freeze.
I’ve heard that BD Wong as Professor Hugo Strange is one of the must-see elements of this villain-centric season. I’m also finding it interesting how comic convention panels are now being captured for easy extras on these sets.
