Gotham season 6 might be what fans want after Bruce Wayne finally turned Batman and gave Jim Gordon a mustache, but is it going to become more about the DC story? Gotham debuted as one of Fox’s highest-ranking dramas in the fall of 2014. Throughout recent years, though live attendance has fallen a little bit, Gotham retains a loyal fan base, which was very pleased When FOX chose to give the series a proper final year instead of just canceling it on a cliffhanger, as they did with so many past shows.
In May 2018, just ahead of Fox airing season 4, it was officially announced that Gotham would get a fifth and last season planned to complete the Batman prequel series. Gotham Season 5 began with 12 episodes, much less than last season’s 22-episode orders.
Though, any Gotham fan knows that it’s far easier to have 12 episodes after the fourth season with Selina Kyle, Lee and Nygma bleeding from Knife wounds, and Gotham transforming in a lawless wasteland.
WILL THERE BA A GOTHAM SEASON 6?
Season 5 of Gotham allowed fans to play the story on No Man’s Land, and eventually, Jim Gordon became the lawyer seen in most DC comics. Bruce Wayne was Batman, too; he was doomed to depend on heroic protector Gothom. With the 5th season final that gives fans a glimpse of Gotham, after a long-jump that completes its original goals, there is nothing left for the show. The finale was designed for booking the story of Gotham, leaving no real space for season 6.
Although Gotham star Donal Logue said several months ago that the cast could be open for redemption, it’s hard to see how that happens in a meaningful way, mainly because Gotham was not allowed to use the names, Joker or Batman, because of Warner Bros’s Studio mandates.
THERE ARE NO PLANS TO CONTINUE THE STORY:
While a variety of shows over the years have only been resurrected later, Gotham is unlikely to be one of them. Gotham season 5 was produced from the ground up to the close of the show, and no mention has been made of Gotham season 6.
There was no sign, too, that any follow-up or spinoff plan was in progress. Although Gotham creator Bruno Heller is Shepherding Pennyworth, Batman’s faithful butler’s original story, there are no plans to connect the two shows at the EPIX. This is truly the end of Gotham.
