The new Gotham series Season 1, Episode 16 airing Monday Feb, 16th, will finally reveal The Joker that everyone has been waiting for. Batman's nemesis will come to life and FOX has released a new teaser with the reveal, which you can watch above. 

Episode 16 is titled "The Blind Fortune Teller" and the synopsis is: Gordon takes Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin) to the circus, but the day turns quickly when the circus comes under attack. Then, Falcone enlists Butch Gilzean to help Penguin with the night club, while Fish Mooney is otherwise occupied. Also, Bruce Wayne schedules a meeting with the Wayne Enterprises board in the all new "The Blind Fortune Teller" episode. 

Netflix and Warner Bros. announced the agreement and that the series will be available on the streaming site in 2015. Netflix paid around $1.75 million for "Gotham" series rights.

"Gotham is the most anticipated new series of the fall season and we are thrilled to offer it to our members around the world," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, in a statement. "The Batman origin story is sure to have massive global appeal so it is fitting that, along with Warner Television, we have created a new model for distributing a show that international and domestic audiences will love."

Ben McKenzie (Southland, O.C.) stars in Gotham as the commissioner-to-be James Gordon in the drama that includes many of the big Batman characters including a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more. Dona Logue co-stars as Detective Harvey Bullock and Jada Pinkett Smith plays villain Fish Mooney as the series looks to tell a story that has not been told yet. 

Official synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen's Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham's most high-profile cases ever: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. During his investigation, Gordon meets the Waynes' son, Bruce, now in the care of his butler Alfred, which further compels Gordon to catch the killer. Along the way, Gordon must confront gang boss Fish Mooney, as well as many of Gotham's future villains, such as Selina Kyle and Oswald Cobblepot. Eventually, Gordon is forced to form an unlikely friendship with Bruce, one that will help shape the boy's future in becoming the Dark Knight.

The pilot of Gotham was put out by Warner Bros. Television, with The Mentalist's Bruno Heller writing the pilot, and Emmy nominee Danny Cannon (CSI, Nikita) is director and executive produced. John Stephens will also serve as an exec producer on the series.
