The FOX series (which began as a James Gordon prequel show but quickly morphed into basically Baby Batman) has been renewed for a fifth and final season, ensuring the showrunners will be able to wrap this story up in a conclusive manner.
As reported by Deadline, FOX has released its schedule for the 2018/2019 season and it reveals that the final outing of the Batman-related series will kick off early next year.
The new season will be having 13 episodes, bringing the total episodes of "Gotham" to 100 episodes. 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.
According to Variety, "The final season will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader". When the show returns this fall, Fox will move it again to a different time slot to accommodate Thursday Night Football season. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the pickup is for 13 episodes, though the network and producers Warner Bros. Lucifer would make a ideal addition to the new service, as would Gotham, should showrunners look to continue the story beyond season 5.
