Gotham Renewed for Final Season That Promises to Reveal [Spoiler]

Gotham Renewed for Final Season That Promises to Reveal [Spoiler]

Variety reports Gotham will return for Season 5, which will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the Dark Knight.

There was incentive for Gotham to be renewed despite these low ratings, as only 13 more episodes will get the show to the 100 episode mark, which makes it prime for syndication. Following a three-month hiatus, the show was brought back to the schedule with Showtime at the Apollo as a lead-out, a double whammy that accelerated the show's decline and caused it to notably sink from what MasterChef Junior was doing last season.

If anything, Gotham is pretty lucky to have been renewed for another season because the past week saw Fox cancelling several beloved television series such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man on Earth, and The Mick.

He captioned the post in part: 'I am so overjoyed that we will have the opportunity to finish the story the first four seasons of gotham have begun to tell'.

While the show was anticipated as a gritty cop drama about James Gordon, it was actually revealed to be a very silly comic book series, complete with outlandish villains and consistently over-the-top moments.

Gotham was on the chopping block as FOX underwent a restructuring of sorts, axing nearly every series that wasn't produced in house. If Disney does end up owning both networks, we have a harder time imagining some DC Comics properties sticking around there.

While fans of Gotham can breathe a sigh of relief with the news that the series is getting one more season to wrap up, the wait for new episodes will be a long one.

As yet, there's no word on a premiere date or episode count for season five, but we'll keep you posted.
