Gotham Renewed For Season Three


Jim Gordon, The Penguin, and the rest will be back for at least one more year, as Gotham series star Ben McKenzie announced to Twitter today that the series has been renewed for a third season.

The series, which also stars Deadpool's Morena Baccarin, hails from executive producer Bruno Heller and has been one of FOX's breakout hits the last couple of years. It centers on a young Bruce Wayne immediately following the death of his parents, and the culture around the Gotham City Police Department while supervillains start to take hold and Detective James Gordon begins his ascent to Commissioner.

 Gotham airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. 

Supergirl, which airs in the same time slot at CBS and also adapts DC Comics source material, has a renewal commitment as well -- and ArrowThe FlashiZombie, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow have already secured renewals at The CW. This leaves only Lucifer's fate to be decided.

    I like this show, but ive never quite been sold on the actor portraying Bruce.He's a great young actor, and I think they have a great opportunity to write him off after season 3-now that Bruce is on the street, they could follow Batman Begins, and toughen up young Bruce, have him go through puberty, grow his hair, then in season 4, Alfred is distraught, Bruce has been missing for several years.News gets out about a vigilante in Gotham, Alfred's keen detective work shows it is clearly Bruce, so he goes looking.Bruce is now older, stronger, street-tough, but still, not quite ready for the cape & cowl.But he's damn close! Gordon has his mustache, Riddler is on the loose, and Seline, well, she's stealing from crooked Wall Street execs.

    Crappy shows continue to get renewed. Hopefully it'll meet it's end with season 3 just like Under the Dome.

  1. I'd be all for this. To be honest watching a show about Gotham City without actually having BATMAN in it just doesn't seem right. I've watched it a few times, and I like that it's got origin stories, but I just can't really get into it w/o BATMAN. What I was seriously expecting from this was that MAYBE in Season 1 they did all of the young Bruce first year after his parents' deaths, and then I figured that Season 2 would fast forward a few years, and bring the Bat. I REALLY hope that they do it for Season3.

    What's really amazing in next week we get Paul Rubins as Penguin's father and there was one scene in this week's episode (the one where they lock him in with the ice cream guy) where something about the way he talks or acts seemed, to me, to be very like Paul Rubins. Can't wait to see where this is going.
