Jada Pinkett Smith is leaving a lot of Gotham fans distraught after revealing that she will not return to the show next season. During an interview on Live With Kelly and Michael, Pinkett Smith said she only signed on for one year.

“I don’t think so, no. I signed for a year and the year is up,” the actress said in response to a question regarding her return. “But there are some great things coming ahead on Gotham, believe you me. There’s a lot of good stuff coming.”

There’s no word on how Pinkett Smith’s character will leave the show, but during a recent episode, Fish Mooney gouged out her own eye. In an interview with Extra, Pinkett Smith alluded to a possible surprise as Fish Mooney makes her exit from Gotham.


“You never know what Fish might have up her sleeve,” she told Extra.
