"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.

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.
