Gotham renewed by FOX for an abbreviated fifth and final season

Gotham renewed by FOX for an abbreviated fifth and final season

An episode count for Gotham Season 5 has not yet been determined, but it's possible this upcoming season could consist of only 13 episodes as opposed to the traditional 22.

While it is sad to get a final season for Gotham at this point, it's something we speculated on earlier today for a number of different reasons, including the show's recent ratings trajectory and also some of the Fox acquisition talk behind the scenes.

Signing off, Mazouz thanked network Fox for the opportunity to "finish strong", and the fans for "keeping this show alive". The series recently moved from airing on Monday nights to Thursday nights and averaged 3.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 age coveted advertiser demographic. Fox has officially given the Batman prequel a fifth season order.

Sources say #Gotham is still in play, for potential 13-episode order.

As reported by Screen Rant, the higher-ups at a Warner Bros. requested that the character of The Joker remain on the big screen and in the films of the DC Extended Universe. And be sure to tune in for the Gotham season 4 finale on May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. But here's the rub: This will be the show's final season and will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader. Well, fortunately, the series has managed to secure a fifth season pick-up. While it would be cool to see the story of the show play out elsewhere, we do like the idea of writing towards a final season and getting a fitting conclusion. Unfortunately, since then, the Fox drama has managed to land a replacement for fired actor Clayne Crawford, leading many to worry what would ultimately become of Gotham.
