Gotham renewed for Season 5, but it will be the last

Gotham has been renewed for a fifth and final season

It’s had a good run, but time’s almost up for Fox’s Gotham; the show has been renewed for Season 5, but it will be the last one.

The cancellation may be disappointing for the show’s fans, but at least Gotham is being given the opportunity to deliver a solid and hopefully satisfying conclusion.

Following the news, Bruce Wayne actor David Mazouz posted the following on his Instagram:

#gothamseason5 I am so overjoyed that we will have the opportunity to finish the story the first four seasons of gotham have begun to tell. The last time I posted this picture some people thought I was signaling the shows early end. In all honesty, at the time, I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen. Everything i said, though, still holds more true than ever. I love the family we have built and feel so grateful to be apart of a project with fans so passionate. And when our fate was still on the line, it was you guys I was most upset about. The thought of ending on a note that did not display the end of each characters path terrified me as it would mean everyone who invested their time and energy into caring about what happens to these people and how they get where they’re going would be left with disappointment. Thank you fox for giving us this opportunity to finish strong. And thank you all for keeping this show alive. I’m going to stop typing now. I love you all and DO NOT forget to watch the incredible finale Thursday night #Gotham #GothamStrong
