Fox has released the first image of BD Wong as Hugo Strange from the upcoming season of “Gotham.”

Strange is not the only new face joining “Gotham” this season. Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow) will make his long awaited debut as well.

Wong is a well-known stage and screen actor. He has appeared in over 200 episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” as Dr. George Huang. He also reprised his role as Dr. Henry Wu from “Jurassic Park” in the 2015 summer blockbuster “Jurassic World.”
