FOX announced it has given the green light to Gotham Season 5 and also revealed it will the series’ last season. “The fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told,” FOX said in a statement.
Although the network has not announced how many episodes the fifth season will have, it is believed to be a shorter, 13-episode season which would take the show to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication. The final season will focus on Bruce Wayne’s transformation into the caped crusader.
The show’s Season 4 finale is set to air on May 17 and is titled “A Dark Knight: No Man’s Land.” The episode is described as follows: “Jeremiah warns a skeptical Gordon of more destruction coming Gotham’s way, and Gordon is forced to make a potentially devastating decision. Meanwhile, Barbara rallies together a team to secure her position, as alliances in the underworld shift and prove no one can be trusted. Then, Bruce is forced to come to terms with the future.”
