Bruce Wayne still has some training to do on his path to becoming the Dark Knight so it’s a good thing FOX has decided to renew the series for its fourth season. The announcement came last night as many of the major networks finally let the public know which of their favorite shows were getting the axe and which were going to continue. Gotham is nearing the end of its third season with only five episodes to go so the news of the renewal comes at just the right time to ensure fans won’t be left with a series cliffhanger (something FOX is notorious for doing with their series).
There is a lot happening in the world of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) in the current season. We don’t want to give too much away or provide any spoilers, but we can say that the ongoing conflict between the main “good guys” and the Court of Owls will soon come to a head. The series’ villains are also embroiled in their own ongoing conflicts giving some amazing scenes to Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), Edward Nigma (Cory Michael Smith), and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor).
The renewal of Gotham isn’t the most surprising of series reveals to come out of the networks yesterday. The show has been a hit with fans even though it has seen a slight drop in ratings this season. The network appears to be banking on the ongoing comic book-themed success of television and film adaptations going on, which should see Gotham continue for some time.
The renewal news hasn’t provided any details about who will be returning to the show, but chances are high we will see most of the core cast come back for the fourth season, which will likely continue to air Monday nights beginning in late September.
Gotham airs on Monday nights on FOX at 8:00 p.m., EST.
