Not only can Gotham fans expect to see a lot more of Jerome when the show returns for its fourth season, but there's also a new partner in crime to look forward to.

Although we are sorry to say it's not in the form of Harley Quinn. Not yet, anyway.

Teasing Jerome's descent into crime and chaos – and the Joker – executive producer John Stephens told ComicBook.com that he was set to "form an alliance". Intriguing.

"You're gonna see him in a new position this year, and he's gonna form an alliance with a character who he has not been near at any time soon," he revealed.

Despite it not being with Barbara Kean's alter-ego, as fans have long been hoping for, the new partnership is going to keep everybody happy.

"Essentially, we're gonna see him and Oswald Cobblepot come closer," Stephens teased.

We reckon it's safe to say the Joker and the Penguin are here to cause trouble in Gotham, don't you?

In other Gotham news, a recent teaser for the upcoming season hinted at Bruce Wayne's transition into the Batman.

In the brand-new clip, the titles reveal "a hero is born" as the young Master Wayne declares that "Gotham needs more people who are willing to fight for her".

The UK is behind in the series, with Gotham's third season yet to air on these shores. US fans can expect the fourth season to kick off on September 21.
