Portraying Dr. Leslie Thompkins, Baccarin originally joined Gotham on Fox in January. According to TVLine, Baccarin’s recurring role deal included a series-regular option for the sophomore season, which has now been exercised.
That means Baccarin’s comic book adaption schedule has just gotten a little more hectic. The Homeland and Firefly actress also is set to appear in Deadpool as mutant Copycat and provides the voice of Gideon on The Flash.
As for Gotham, the second season of the Batman origin show will be paired with Minority Report on Monday evenings when it premieres later this year.
