Just in time for the holidays, Gotham is bringing a member of Jim Gordon’s family to town.

The Fox series, which follows the early years of future Batman ally Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie), has cast Dexter alum James Remar as his uncle, Frank. The elder Gordon left Gotham after Jim’s father died, but 25 years later, he’s back and looking to reconnect with his nephew. But Frank has a dark secret that will force Jim to choose between saving his family and saving Gotham.

For 8 seasons, Remar starred as Harry Morgan, deceased father to Miami’s premier vigilante serial killer. In addition to his upcoming gig on Gotham, the actor is joining season 2 of Hulu’s The Path, in which he will play Kodiak, a controversial figure in the show’s fictional religious movement.

Gotham airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
