DC’s villains will lurk the gritty streets of Gotham for another season. Fox announced Wednesday that the drama, which chronicles the origins of myriad Batman villains, has been renewed for season 3.

“For the past two seasons, Bruno [Heller], Danny [Cannon] and John [Stephens] have masterfully honored the mythology of Gotham and brought it to life with depth, emotion and memorable high drama,” Fox Entertainment President David Madden said in a statement. “This incredibly talented cast has redefined these iconic characters for a new generation, and we couldn’t be more proud of this show.”

The DC Comics series, which is in the middle of its second season, is averaging 9 million viewers across multi-platforms and is among the top 10 shows for the men in the 18-49 demo.

The series continues to explore origins of DC’s villains and vigilantes; Paul Reubens‘ turn as the Penguin’s father begins Monday. B.D. Wong and Nathan Darrow joined the series at the midseason premiere as Dr. Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze, respectively.
