Gotham has officially been renewed for a fourth season


It looks like viewers will be returning to Gotham this fall!

Since 2014, Gotham has provided Batman and comic book fans alike with a glimpse at the early adventures of James Gordon as well as the trial and tribulations of a young Bruce Wayne. Well, it looks like we’ll get to see more of their story.

Outlets such as Variety have reported that Fox has renewed the show for a fourth season. The news came alongside the announcement of the renewal of fellow Fox series, The Last Man on Earth.

Although this is not a massive surprise, a renewal for the series did come into question as ratings declined slightly over the past few weeks. However, the ratings proved to be solid enough to warrant a new season.

For the bulk of its run, Gotham has been well-received by both critics and fans. The show has given viewers interesting and entertaining storytelling, and it has also managed to add some fresh elements to the Batman mythos. On top of this, the series has been marked by strong performances from actors Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, and Cameron Monaghan who plays the scene-stealing Jerome Valeska.

During this season alone, the show has managed to tackle a variety of characters such as Jervis Tetch (The Mad Hatter) and the Court of Owls. It has also included surprising plot developments such as the resurrection of Jerome.

It’s easy to say that season three has been the most creatively powerful season of the show. With multidimensional characters and a vast amount of material that it can still cover, one can only guess where the show will go in its fourth year.
