Fox Schedules 5th + Final Season of Gotham for 2018/2019 Slate
In a press release on Monday, Fox made a bittersweet announcement regarding the television series Gotham. Gotham has been renewed for a fifth season but that very same season will also be the last season for the series. It is said that during this last season we will see David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne finally transition in to the Dark Knight of Gotham; a fitting way to wrap up the story if you ask me. While the primary focus of the tv show has primarily been focused on the Caped Crusader’s rogues gallery, the show has also been very much about a young Bruce Wayne’s path to the cowl.
“Also at midseason, GOTHAM will air its fifth and final season, wrapping up this beloved series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) transformation into the caped crusader. GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller and executive producers Danny Cannon and John Stephens, GOTHAM follows the rise of Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. The series also stars Donal Logue, Morena Baccarin, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Jessica Lucas, Chris Chalk, Drew Powell, Alexander Siddig and Crystal Reed.”
In news relating to Fox’s 2018/2019 lineup, The Orville and The Gifted will also continue from mid-season with additional new seasons. The show Lucifer has ended in it’s third season with episode 24 ‘A Devil Of My Word’; in fact that aired this week. The show was based on a Neil Gaiman and Sam Keith graphic novel originally published by D.C. Comics.
I like this promotional picture here for the show, but now it looks like Thanos is making them fade away.
