Depicting batman's story of origin, Gotham gets finally saved by Fox. The network wants to launch the fifth and the final season of the show. 'Gotham' is one of the shows which is on DC's drama list.
The new and final season would be 13 episodes long and would mainly focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the Dark Knight.
Gotham isn't the only Warner Bros TV show that the Fox network saved at the 11th hour, it even picked up 'Lethal Weapon'. However the original cast had to face some changes as the lead co-star Clayne Crawford got replaced by Seann William Scott. Fox network's cult favourite, 'Lucifer' was sadly discontinued.

The three seasons so far have been aired on Monday. Now, the show has been shifted to Thursday. The Chairman of Fox network, Gary Newman had some views about the show. He said, “We asked a lot of it this year moving to Thursday nights and I thought it did a pretty good job of opening up that night for us.” He might have an insight for the future of the series. The Chairman stated that Gotham was purely a matter of proper scheduling.
Gotham made a strong start with the pilot in the fall of 2014. It was mainly popular because of its IP. However, the ratings of this show has been fluctuating since then.
