FOX’s Gotham – the story of how Bruce Wayne becomes Batman will conclude in a 13-episode fifth and final season to premiere at midseason.
FOX has tweaked its Fall 2017 schedule a wee bit – moving the season four premiere of Gotham and the time period premiere of The Orville up a week to Thursday, September 21st.
The Orville moves into its time regular period after its two-night premiere immediately following Football on FOX doubleheaders on Sunday, September 10th and Sunday, September 17th.
Warner Bros. Television brought a very dark Gotham sizzle reel to Sn Diego for Comic-Con 2017 – just over four of its almost six-minutes run through some of the many key moments of Season Three.
It’s the last minute-and-a-half where we get to see some spectacular teases for Season Four: Bruce in action; Selina in action; the unveiling of the frosty centerpiece at Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge; a glimpse of someone/something like a rabid Joker and the first appearance of a certain Crane alias.
Gotham returns on Thursday, September 28th (FOX, 8/7C).
This week, Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) finds Oswald Cobblepot fretting on election day and The Great Jervis Tetch hiring luchadores to help retrieve his sister.
Gotham City isn’t just getting darker, it’s getting crazier.
After a poignant momentary glance at Lee, the third season premiere of Gotham, Mad City: Better To Reign In Hell, finds Jim Gordon back in Gotham, thwarting the robbery of a pharmacy by a giant who looks to be part stegosaurus.
The monsters are making things tough for police. Not making their image better is Gordon’s successful work as a bounty hunter. And then there’s the inquiring mind of Gotham Gazette reporter Valerie Vale…
The second season finale of Gotham – Wrath of the Villains: Transference – flirts heavily with going off the rails, but hangs on to provide a potentially catastrophic cliffhanger in which none of the usual suspects are actually at risk.
Oh, no. This time it’s Gotham as a whole that’s in trouble.
Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) returns with a bang this week as Edward Nygma inspires Dr. Hugo Strange with a way to bring the recently resurrected Theo Galavan out of chaotic madness to serve his own purposes.
Meanwhile, Nygma makes Jim Gordon an ominous promise and Captain Barnes discovers that his ‘by the book’ methodology doesn’t always work.
Now that Bruce Wayne has the name of his parents’ killer, and a gun, it’s time for him to seek out the infamous Matches Malone. It’ll take an audience with God (kind of), but the meeting is now inevitable.
Meanwhile, Oswald T. Cobblepot has a little more therapy to face and Edward Nygma learns that Jim Gordon is looking into Kristin Kringle’s whereabouts and leaps to a completely unfounded suspicion.
The second half the second season of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) is well underway with new villains Hugo Strange and Victor Fries getting a significant amount of screentime – and Bruce Wayne returning from Switzerland.
A Dead Man Feels No Cold might sound like a Ross MacDonald novel (or a Stan Lee comic), but it’s very much a DC Comics tale dealing with life, love, torture (in the name of mental health) and death.
Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) reaches its fall finale with an episode that is full of change. Alliances are made and dissolved; last week’s cliffhanger that wasn’t is resolved, and we see glimmering of what’s to come.
Despite some miraculous healing (or at least partial healing), some strange family values moments, perfect timing and two new additions to the streets of Gotham City all add up to a fun ride.
Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) has been showcasing individual characters (mostly villains) almost every episode – even as it developed Theo Galavan’s plan to destroy the city and rebuild in his own image. We’ve seen, among others, Jerome Valeska, Edward Nygma, Oswald ‘Penguin’ Cobblepot and , of course, Galavan given episodes that explored their backgrounds or highlighted aspects of their personalities.
Tonight’s the Night is Barbara Kean’s turn in the spotlight in an episode that brings all manner of arcs into play.
