Ever since Jerome died during season 2 of Gotham, fans have been campaigning for the Joker-esque character’s return. And nearly a year later, it seems their cries have reached the right ears.
EW has confirmed that Cameron Monaghan will return during the show’s upcoming third season. When he comes back — or perhaps more importantly, how he comes back – is still to be determined, but considering Gotham is now a “Mad City,” it seems only fitting that Jerome make his return.
Monaghan himself teased his appearance on Instagram, posting a blank video that features Jerome’s signature laugh.
Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
