Gotham - Renewed for a 5th and Final Season by FOX





Fox has renewed Batman prequel drama Gotham for a fifth and likely abbreviated final season. Sources tell THR that the pickup is for 13 episodes, though the network and producers Warner Bros. Television have yet to make a formal announcement on the final season tally. The final season will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader.

The renewal arrives as Gotham needs exactly 13 episodes to reach the 100-episode milestone needed to sell the show in syndication, with Warners fighting hard for one final pickup amid Fox's changing creative direction. A syndication deal for Gotham would be a sizable financial windfall for Warners, which as an indie studio without a Big 4 network backer faces an uphill battle to land series on the air in an era where ownership is becoming increasingly important.


I hear it will likely air in midseason.

Gotham is an important asset for producer Warner Bros. TV, which has a huge Netflix deal for the show. It was the first SVOD pact for a broadcast series made before its premiere. Estimated to be worth about $1.75 million an episode, it made Netflix the exclusive subscription video on demand home of the Batman prequel in the U.S. as well as in the territories in which the streaming network operates
