Gotham will be returning for a fifth and final season next year. Fox’s DC prequel series will finalize the evolution of Batman and his iconic villains, ending with the present-day versions of the characters we all know and love. Well, we now know when the season will premiere, and we’re getting a longer season than expected.
Gotham will return on Thursday, January 3rd at 8 PM EST. Not only that, but the season has gotten a larger episode order. Originally set for 10 episodes, the season will now run for 12 episodes. This brings the entire series to 100 episodes. Considering how the series finale will fast-forward to the present day and introduce Batman, having it be episode 100 is appropriate.
We still have unfinished business in #Gotham…don’t miss the Final Season premiere January 3 on @FOXTV.
