Gotham season 5 will focus on Bruce Wayne's transition into Batman. The Primetime Emmy-winning series created by Bruno Heller premiered in 2014 and has since aired eighty episodes, with an expected twenty-two more which will be the series' final season.

It appears that Gotham may be renewed for a fifth 13 episode season allowing the series to reach it's 100th episode and maybe even beyond.

FOX has cut a number of shows ahead of the upfront presentations this week where a new fall lineup will be announced. FOX dropped Lucifer like a hot potato, surprising everyone, andLucifer's numbers are a lot better than Gotham's are. The series is produced by Warner Bros.

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.

That the Peter Roth-run indie studio achieved the Gotham renewal and a third-season pickup for Lethal Weapon after the studio fired star Clayne Crawford should be seen a big win.

Young Bruce Wayne's caped crusade will not be coming to an abrupt end after all. Batman: No Man's Land is a 1999 comic series that saw the Caped Crusader trying to restore order in Gotham following the city almost being destroyed by an quake. "Gotham" is based on DC Comics characters.

Aided by lead-out The Orville, Gotham had a fairly decent fall considering its move to Thursdays, improving the time slot from last season and keeping its head above water.

But fans of the show shouldn't despair.

While Gotham fans would love the show to continue for years to come (and it could on DC's new streaming service), the ratings weren't very high on Fox.
