FOX Chief Open To “Gotham” Spin-Off Shows

After creatively struggling for much of its first season, FOX’s “Gotham” found its footing right from the start of the second and has decidedly improved in quality.

Speaking with IGN after FOX’s 2016 winter Television Critics Association press tour last week, FOX Chairman and CEO Gary Newman says the network would “certainly be open to considering” potential Gotham spinoffs though would need DC approval first:

“We’re really happy with the creative on Gotham this year. We thought the Rise of the Villains has been great, and it feels like a world that has many, many stories to tell. We haven’t had any conversations with Warners about whether or not they’d want to do a spinoff series. I think that would be an issue for DC. It isn’t quite clear to me that they’d be ready to do that, but it’s a good idea.”

FOX is about to launch two more comic dramas in coming months including “Lucider” next week and the “X-Men” related series “Hellfire”. The second half of the second season of “Gotham” kicks off February 29th.
