Fox’s Gotham Gets Full Season Order. It seems that Gotham will be extending its stay on Fox as the network ordered a full season of the Batman-prequel series. According to Deadline, Gotham will have a 22-episode first season after just airing four episodes.
Gotham would be the first show on Fox to get a full season order this fall after giving the network its highest-rated debut in 14 years. The pilot episode garnered 14.1 million viewers over the first seven days since it aired. Before Gotham aired, Fox gave an initial order of 16 episodes for the first season, but since it’s gotten praise from critics and fans, the network was impressed by the publicity the show has gotten that they decided to increase the episode count by 6 episodes giving the show a full season.
Gotham has received many good reviews, particularly for its stylized production of the city, talented cast, and sticking to the Batman mythology. So expect more stories and villains to show up during this season on Gotham. So are you guys excited that Gotham got a full season order?
Gotham follows the origin story of Batman during the early days of Gotham City as a young detective James Gordon joins the police force in his fight against crime and corruption. The series also explores the origins of the Batman villains that made Gotham City famous.
