Gotham: Fox Renews Batman Prequel Series for Fifth and Final Season

Gotham: Fox Renews Batman Prequel Series for Fifth and Final Season”

Television hopes to push Gotham's episode count past that golden 100 mark so that it can go into syndication. Though a full renewal seems out of the question at this point, it appears that Gotham could get a shortened final season instead, in order to wrap up any lingering plot threads. There was another part of the announcement from Fox, though, and it is that the fifth season will also be its last. Ratings were so-so during that first season, hovering around 6 million viewers, but when the series took a month off in the spring, it came back down over 1 million viewers and never recovered.

FOX has given comic drama Gotham a fifth (and likely final) season renewal, it was confirmed today. One thing the Batman prequel had working in its favor at the time was that Lethal Weapon was having trouble securing a new lead with a Monday deadline looming. FOX also adds that the final season " will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader". For now, fans can rest easy knowing producers will have the chance to properly conclude the story they've been telling over these past four seasons. Indeed, syndication can be a lucrative venture, and no doubt Warner Bros.

There have been a lot of TV shows which have been cancelled in the last week, but some like Brooklyn Nine-Nine have already been given a second life.

The renewals came as FOX also canceled several of its fan-favorite dramas like "Lucifer" and "The Exorcist", and laid waste to nearly all of its single-camera comedies, including "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (which has since been saved by NBC), "Last Man on Earth", and "The Mick". The villains of the dark DC Comics city have run wild for a few years now, but they are soon going to meet up with Batman himself.
