The final season of Gotham was ordered in the spring of 2018 and premiered at the beginning of January in 2019. It will have 12 episodes total with an end date of April 25. At just 12 episodes, the final season is about half as long as all of the previous seasons which all consisted of 22 episodes.
This final season is based on two DC Comic storylines. Batman: No Man’s Land, where Gotham City is cut off from the rest of the plant and Batman: Zero Year where the viewer will be able to watch Bruce Wayne’s transition to the costumed vigilante we all know and love as Batman as he attempts to stop the Riddler from taking over the city. Regular views of the show will see some familiar faces this time around with characters like Jervis Tetch (the Mad Hatter) and Arthur Penn returning in some capacity.
The final episode of the series is said to include a time jump, where viewers will be transported ten years into the future as Wayne is finally established as Batman.
There are several television series out there that has universally been accepted as binge-worthy. Does Gotham make the cut? While people who may not be fans of DC Comics might be turned off by the prospect of a series being based on them, we still consider Gotham to be a very binge-worthy series. Do you need to have a basic understanding of Batman and the comics to be able to enjoy the show? Not at all. The producers and writers do a very good job of introducing the characters in a way that doesn’t require viewers to have prior knowledge at all. Of course, the DC Comic books fans might be able to fangirl over their favorite comic book characters and villains in ways that viewers who aren’t familiar with the comics cannot. But that only adds to the excitement for viewers who are already fans and doesn’t take away from the experience for people who aren’t well-versed in the Gotham universe.
