*“Gotham” won’t have Fish Mooney to run from next season.

Jada Pinkett Smith announced she will end her run on the hit Fox series at the end of the season, reports Extra.

“We’re done, I did my year and I had a good time,” she tells “Extra’s” AJ Calloway, adding. “The show is gonna be an awesome finale.”

The actress says she is grateful for her time on the show, “I’ve always been a comic book fan so it was definitely a dream to be able to participate in an origin story of Batman with an original character, who would of thought in a million years that I would have the opportunity to do that.”

As for Fish Mooney’s final farewell, Jada would only say, “You never know what Fish might have up her sleeve.”

Up next for Pinkett: “Magic Mike XXL,” playing a club owner with Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello reprising their roles as strippers. “I call Channing white chocolate, that’s my nickname for Channing,” she says.

“It’s just treats everywhere,” she said of the entire cast. “When I say yum yums – everywhere…the ladies are gonna be very happy this summer.

“There was a couple times on set that if I see anything brown with muscles I need 50 feet, cause you know my club, it’s all just fine black men, and there was one day on the set where they were all getting greased up at once it seemed like, by the make-up department, and my knee buckled.”

As for her own bod, the 43-year-old told AJ she recently put on some weight: “I gained a little weight, like twelve pounds, I look normal know. It’s good for me.”
