FOX’s ‘Gotham’ Gets Full Season Order

By April Lara | 3 years ago

Originally, “Gotham” has 16 episodes to air for its first season. However, due to the show’s success, it has been given a full-season order. Read on to learn more about this scoop.

"Gotham," which originally has 16 episodes, will now have 22 episodes. That being said, a possibility of interesting villains might just come up this season. A “Batman” universe origin story, the show is FOX's highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years. There is no wonder why it got the full season order.

“'Gotham' debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason. Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rick world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we’ve never seen before,” said Fox Televesion Group CEOs and Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman in a statement.

The show is based on the DC Entertainment characters, and we have seen a lot of interesting characters already. 

There is really no surprise why the show has been getting high ratings as it is a different kind of “Batman.” We’ve seen plenty of “Batman” movies but never something like this — a full TV series about his world before he came to be the superhero himself who saves the city from corruption, crimes and mobs. With a group of interesting and famous villains, we think this show is going to go a long way, and it is definitely something that a lot of fans would anticipate every Monday night.
