Gotham Renewed by Fox, Hopefully Third Time’s the Charm
I’ve been trying to love Gotham for nearly two seasons now, but the show that I initially hoped would be good, and then so bad-it’s-good, has, for me, been mostly just bad. Still, it manages to showcase some really incredible actors (B.D. Wong, Morena Baccarin,
Ryan Atwood Ben McKenzie), so I’m happy to see Fox is renewing the series for a third season.
Fox’s entertainment president David Madden said in a press release that the actors “brought the show to life” and helped redefine “iconic characters for a new generation.” The show is currently in its second season, which wraps up May 9th.
Gotham is one of many DC TV series to recently get renewed for a second season—the CW renewed all 11 of its current scripted series, including Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, and CBS CEO Les Moonves has strongly implied that Supergirl will be getting a Season 2.
Fox also released a synopsis for the upcoming episode of Gotham:
In the all-new episode “Wrath of the Villains: Mad Grey Dawn,” airing Monday, March 21 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) investigate a trail of clues left in a museum robbery, which, unbeknownst to them, were left by Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse. Meanwhile, Gordon’s past comes back to haunt him when an anonymous person threatens to expose his hand in Galavan’s murder. Also, Penguin’s (Robin Lord Taylor) visit to some old friends leads him to meet his father, Elijah Van Dahl (guest star Paul Reubens), and Bruce (David Mazouz) practices his street smarts.
Will you be tuning in for a season 3 of Gotham?
