The first new teaser trailers for the Season 2 of Fox’s Gotham have arrived, and they promise year two will be all about the baddies. Considering they’re drawing from Batman’s extensive DC lore, there should be more than enough to go around.

The network has dropped two new teaser clips for the second season, both subtitled with the tagline “Rise of the Villains,” that show off some interesting plot points we’ll be exploring this fall. First up, we have young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) continuing his explorations into what will eventually become the Batcave, following the mysterious discovery left behind by his father Thomas Wayne late in the first season.

The second clip shows Robin Lord Taylor’s conniving take on a young Penguin having a sit down with Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). The interesting part? Gordon is asking for the Penguin’s help. The push and pull between these two characters made for some of the best parts of a somewhat half-baked debut season, so it’s nice to know they’ll continue to cross paths when the show returns. The teaser also gives us some fleeting shots of other baddies, including the young Joker we met last season.

Check out the teasers below and let us know what you think:

Gotham returns to Fox on September 21.
