Fox Renews 'Gotham' For A Fifth And Final Season

Ismael LynchMay 15, 2018

Gotham was on the chopping block as FOX underwent a restructuring of sorts, axing nearly every series that wasn't produced in house.

This weekend brought some fantastic news for Gotham fans. 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.

To-date, the series has told the origin stories of some of the most recognisable characters from the world of DC.

Starring Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Camren Bicondova, Morena Baccarin and scores of others, Gotham airs Thursday nights at 8/7c, with its Season 4 finale set for May 17. Instead of paying licensing rights to Warner Bros, FOX looked to keep as much content in-house as possible. The series has averaged a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 throughout its fourth season, down three-tenths from its third season's 1.1 average. Early reports stated that Gotham's renewal was contingent on Lethal Weapon's cancelation.

THR's Lesley Goldberg tweeted that per his sources, it appears that Gotham may still have some legs left for a final bout allowing the series to get syndicated thanks to its 100 episode benchmark.

What do you want first?

According to Entertainment Weekly, that same fate will not be coming for Gotham and fans at least know to be prepared for the fifth season to be its final one.

With the show gearing up for the current season's finale next week, fans of Fox's Gotham received some bittersweet news as the show has been renewed for a fifth season, unfortunately, it will be the show's last.

The series is filmed in New York City.
