Fox's 'Gotham' to return for 5th Season

Gotham Cancelled Renewed Gotham Renewed for Season 5 by FOX
Michele Schwartz | 15 May, 2018, 22:43

Gotham City's heroes and villains faced one of their toughest challenges yet recently, as the gloriously freakish Gotham remained on the renewal-or-cancellation bubble longer than everything else in Fox's lineup.

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.

It appears that Gotham may be renewed for a fifth 13 episode season allowing the series to reach it's 100th episode and maybe even beyond.

Still remaining on the bubble at Fox are 20th TV-produced single-camera comedies Ghosted and L.A.to Vegas, both of which remain in the conversation for potential second-season renewals.

Gotham now has 86 episodes under its belt, and the season 4 finale will make it 87.

Produced by Warner Bros.

It'll be interesting to see what FOX does with Gotham.

It probably makes sense to do a time jump, especially considering Bruce Wayne is still a teenager.

The network did not say how many episodes are in the order.

After cancelling Lucifer, The Exorcist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick and The Last Man on Earth in recent days, Fox has made fans of Gotham wait for news on the future of the Batman prequel series. "Gotham" is based on DC Comics characters.

The renewal is a little bit of a surprise considering that Gotham hasn't been at its most fabulous - in terms of ratings, at least - this season. While the show's first season was greeted with a lukewarm critical reception, later seasons were embraced by fans and critics alike.
