Fox's Gotham has already earned its spot on our DVRs for this season. If you're still on the fence about the comic-based drama, this promo may change your mind. The network has released an extended trailer for the series that turns up the crazy. It proves that Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is dealing with a different breed of villain.

The video shows Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) as Gotham's resident mob boss who has connections to the Falcone clan. She tests Gordon's limits with her blatant disrespect for the law and love of violence. Seriously, she beats people with bats, chairs and anything else in arm's reach.

There are also glimpses of future baddies like Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy (Clare Foley), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor).

Check out the extended trailer below:

Gotham premieres Sep. 22 on Fox.
