“the fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told.” – Gotham’s producers
Gotham is ending but it will hopefully get the send off it deserves. At what is almost literally the last minute, Fox has renewed the Batman prequel series for its final season.
Gotham has seen its ratings drop after the move to Thursday in its fourth season. Fans have taken to social media with hashtags like #renewgothamseason5 in the hopes that Fox would keep the show going. In the end, money is what ultimately made a fifth season possible as Gotham is mere 13 episodes away from the 100 needed for syndication. At this moment it is still unclear if the final season will have a full 22 or so episodes or just the 13. What is known is that season five will focus on Bruce Wayne’s transformation into the Batman.
Stay tuned for more details.
