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

But they haven't confirmed how long that season will be.

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. Here's what FOX had to say...

Gotham fans received bittersweet news regarding the future of the show. FOX dropped Lucifer like a hot potato, surprising everyone, andLucifer's numbers are a lot better than Gotham's are. At that time, David Mazouz's Bruce Wayne was a fairly small but key part of the ensemble, but as the show evolved Bruce came more to the forefront.

Following news that Gotham has been renewed for a fifth, and final, season comes word that the Batman prequel won't return to Fox's lineup until midseason. 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.


That the Peter Roth-run indie studio achieved the Gotham renewal and a third-season pickup for Lethal Weapon after the studio fired star Clayne Crawford should be seen a big win.

Gotham, meanwhile, was never a ratings breakout for Fox but has been a reliable procedural with a DC Comics twist.

Gotham will be getting one more season. While the show's first season was greeted with a lukewarm critical reception, later seasons were embraced by fans and critics alike.

This era of favoring in-house content could help streaming giants like Hulu and Netflix, but there's also a new player coming to town later this year when the Warner Bros and DC Entertainment streaming service, DC Universe, debuts.
