Do you have room on your DVR for another TV drama? Better make sure, because "Gotham" is looking more and more like must-see TV.

This UK teaser for "Gotham," which assures concerned Brits that they too will be able to see just how James Gordon got his start, gives us a good look at the characters populating this mythical city, from a young Bruce Wayne and baby Ivy to Catwoman and the Penguin. Part of the fun of "Gotham" will be seeing these heroes and villains in their nascent forms, as well as sussing out who's who. For instance, that young blonde lurking in the shadows? That's Sara Paxton, and rumor has it her character is Bette Kane. Bat-Girl was originally known as Betty Kane, but eventually she came to be known as Bette. Is Gotham getting a dose of Bat-Girl power? We hope so!

Ben McKenzie stars as Gordon, alongside Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as baby Bruce Wayne, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma (Riddler), Jada Pinkett Smith as boss lady Fish Mooney, Robin Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (Penguin), and Camren Bicondova as future Catwoman Selina Kyle.

The show premieres on Fox on September 22.
