'Gotham' Renewed for Fifth and Final Season at Fox

'Gotham' Renewed for Fifth and Final Season at Fox

It's likely the final season of the show will have smaller episode order, expect something around 13 to close out the series. By getting to this point, Gotham will get to focus on Bruce Wayne turning into Batman, but the question still remains on how they will get there.

The decision to axe Gotham comes without surprise since the televisions series has been on a continuous decline since the second season.

Bruce Wayne just had his closest call yet. The decision came at 8:00 PM ET on Sunday, mere hours before the FOX upfronts in NY on Monday and a few short days before the epic season 4 finale that will lead directly into season 5. The insanely dark arc, which also featured a Killing Joke episode, is wrapping with Gotham's version of the cataclysmic "No Man's Land" comic storyline, which could set the stage for an even more unpredictable narrative in Season 5, and now that the creative team knows this will be the last batch of episodes, they will nearly definitely craft something fans will be rave about, with Bruce Wayne possibly becoming Batman before the season's end. The DC Comics-inspired drama series will be back for a fifth season.

One of the pressing issues is that networks are looking for more in-house content, especially over at FOX in light of the Disney and 20th Century FOX merger.

What do you think about this Gotham season 5 renewal and are you glad to see it happening? Warners will now have the only two outside studio-produced shows on Fox's 2018-19 broadcast schedule.

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.
