Jada Pinkett Smith will reprise her role on “Gotham” as Fish Mooney in multiple Season 2 episodes.

Fox announced Friday that the actress would return to the “Batman”-prequel series for a multi-episode arc in the second half of the season.

Details about the circumstances of her character’s return are being kept under wraps.

Pinkett Smith’s character was thrown into a river in the Season 1 finale, presumably to her death, following the actress’ announcement that she would leave the show following the end of her one-year deal.

“We’re done. I did my year and I had a good time,” Pinkett Smith told “Extra” in March.

Or maybe not …

When the show returns for the second half of Season 2, Penguin takes a hit for Galavan’s murder, but doesn’t let Gordon (Ben McKenzie) off easily. Meanwhile, Gordon and Bullock (Donal Logue) investigate the body-snatching spree of Victor Fries (guest star Nathan Darrow), one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers.

Pinkett Smith most recently made headlines with her threat to boycott the upcoming Oscars because of a lack of diversity in this year’s acting nominations.

“Gotham” returns Monday, Feb. 29 at 8/7c on Fox.
