It's official! "Gotham" has been renewed for another season, Fox announced on Wednesday, March 16. The good news was also confirmed on the show's official Twitter.

Fox Broadcasting Company president for entertainment David Madden said in a statement: "It takes a very special team to tell the tales of 'Gotham.' For the past two seasons, Bruno, Danny and John have masterfully honored the mythology of 'Gotham' and brought it to life with depth, emotion and memorable high drama. This incredibly talented cast has redefined these iconic characters for a new generation, and we couldn't be more proud of this show."

There are still no spoilers for the third season, but it was revealed that it will consist of 22 episodes that will start airing this fall. It will premiere together with other Fox originals "Empire," "Scream Queens," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and "Bones."

Aside from "Gotham," there are two other DC Comics superhero television series that were renewed for another season — The CW's "Flash" and "Arrow."

Although the show is currently running its second season, Variety reports that Paul Reubens will join the cast as a guest star for the story arc, which will begin on Monday, March 21. The "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" star will play as Elijah Van Dahl, Penguin's (Robin Lord Taylor) father.

The upcoming episode 15, titled "Wrath of the Villains: Mad Grey Dawn," will show Penguin and his father's unplanned reunion.

The official spoilers from The Futon Critic reveal that Gordon and Bullock will look into the clues left in a robbed museum. However, it is surprisingly Nygma's doing to create a dangerous game. He is Gotham City Police Department's forensic scientist who is obsessed with riddles and puzzles.

On top of this case, Gordon is haunted by a mysterious person who threats to reveal Gordon's involvement in Galavan's murder. Penguin, on the other hand, ends his supposed visit to a friend to a meeting with Van Dalh.

"Gotham" season 2 airs every Monday, at 8 p.m. on Fox.
