The story of Gotham the TV series is a very curious one. Originally meant to be a simple “origin story” to the Batman universe, and that’s honestly what it was in its first season, the show has grown to be something else entirely. One that doesn’t mind messing with the elements of the Batman timeline in subtle ways, and push stories and characters in ways that are very reminiscent of DC Comics books rather than just a TV show.
Gotham truly came into its own in Season 02 with Rise of the Villains, and then Season 03’s Mad City and now Heroes Rise is continuing the trend of great storytelling. So much so that Gotham has officially been renewed for Season 04. This came straight from the shows Twitter page, which happily shared the news of its renewing with fans.
What will be curious now is what will be the end of Season 03. This season has dealt with the reveal of the Court of Owls, as well as the arrival of many other factors such as a clone of Bruce Wayne, the birth of Riddler, and numerous power plays including Penguin becoming mayor. With Season 04 now confirmed, you have to wonder who might be next to come to Gotham.
