'Gotham' renewed at FOX for fifth and final season

Share

"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", Fox says.

While it is sad to get a final season for Gotham at this point, it's something we speculated on earlier today for a number of different reasons, including the show's recent ratings trajectory and also some of the Fox acquisition talk behind the scenes.

Gotham follows the adventures of a young Bruce Wayne (played by David Mazouz) and Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) in crime-riddled Gotham City, before Wayne grows up to become Batman.

The visitors to the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia had chances early on, with Coutinho seemingly overconfident with his first shot. But Levante, against the odds, took the game to the La Liga giants, with Boateng earning a hattrick and Enis Bardhi scoring.

The show premiered in 2014 and had several creative ups and downs, but found its footing by midway through the second season.

Gotham scored a last-minute renewal from Fox on Sunday. 411's https://411mania.com/movies/411s-tv-renewal-predictions-final-agents-of-shield-izombie-brooklyn-nine-nine/ target=new official renewal predictions had the show marked as Likely Renewed.

One thing the Batman prequel had working in its favor at the time was that Lethal Weapon was having trouble securing a new lead with a Monday deadline looming. The final season will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader.

Gotham was a strong ratings performer in its first season, but it has been falling since, averaging a 1.4 rating in the key 18 to 49 demo in its fifth season, compared to a 1.9 in its fourth.

Of course, more episodes means its easier to sell the syndication rights, so we'll just have to wait and see what Fox ultimately decides. The pickup comes after Fox canceled fellow DC Comics-inspired Warners drama Lucifer after three seasons.
