Fox Renews 'Gotham' For A Fifth And Final Season

Adjust Comment Print

The Primetime Emmy-winning series created by Bruno Heller premiered in 2014 and has since aired eighty episodes, with an expected twenty-two more which will be the series' final season. Fans will get a fifth season to round off all the show's unanswered questions and hopefully bring a satisfying conclusion to the story of Commissioner Gordon.

Producers of Gotham are prepared to wrap everything up in the fifth and final season of Gotham, but the story is only truly beginning. Fans began panicking last week as Fox canceled most series that were not produced in-house.

FOX has cut a number of shows ahead of the upfront presentations this week where a new fall lineup will be announced.

As reported by Screen Rant, the higher-ups at a Warner Bros. requested that the character of The Joker remain on the big screen and in the films of the DC Extended Universe.

Earlier this year, Fox Chairman Gary Newman rolled up to the Innovative TV Conference in Jerusalem to chat about the potential for Gotham to return. Ben McKenzie stars on the series, which revolves around a young Bruce Wayne.

The network did not say how many episodes are in the order. Last season it endured a move to Thursday nights where its ratings fell, but not enough that FOX felt it needed to pull the curtain on things. That's actually been one of Gotham's features, and it'll be interesting to see how the show tackles the Batman transformation in this final season. While the show's first season was greeted with a lukewarm critical reception, later seasons were embraced by fans and critics alike.
