After playing a teenage Selina Kyle for the past five seasons, Camren Bicondova will not be around for the ‘Gotham’ series finale this week…
‘Gotham’ is coming to an end with the series finale set for this Thursday on FOX as Bruce Wayne finally transforms into Batman in an episode that largely takes place 10 years into the future.
On Friday, Camren Bicondova — who has portrayed Selina Kyle aka Catwoman — for all five seasons of the FOX series took to Twitter to reveal she would not be featured in the series finale but also to explain why her role was finished after the episode that aired on April 18.
According to Bicondova, the decision to flash forward for the series finale of ‘Gotham’ meant that an older actress would better serve the role of Selina Kyle for that last episode and so ‘Banshee’ and ‘True Detective’ star Lili Simmons has been cast in that role for the finale.

Bicondova says it was her decision to hand off the role to Simmons for this final episode and that she was extremely proud of the ‘perfect’ performance that was turned in for the last episode as ‘Gotham’ comes to an end.
Bicondova was one of the main stars on ‘Gotham’ through all five seasons with this last stretch of episodes all leading to the finale where the time would flash forward 10 years when Batman has finally started cleaning up the streets of Gotham City.
‘Gotham’ will come to an end this Thursday, April 25 with the series finale on FOX.
