“Gotham” To Wrap With Shorter Fifth Season

Ahead of its upfront presentation, FOX has announced it has given the green light to a fifth and final season of its Batman prequel series “Gotham”.

FOX says in a statement: “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.”

It’s expected the season will be a shorter run of thirteen episodes, taking the show’s count up to 101 episodes which would be enough required for syndication. The final season will also see Bruce Wayne’s transformation into the caped crusader.

The news comes ahead of the show’s fourth season finale to air this Thursday.
