Gotham gets Renewed for a Third Season!

Gotham

Fans will be able to watch more of Gotham because Fox has renewed the show for a third season!

According to IGN, the Batman inspired show will return for a third outing and continue telling the origin story of the iconic Caped Crusader. Fox broadcasting executive David Madden also complimented the team behind Gotham for redefining the characters from the comic book series for the new generation in a press release.

While the viewership for the second season of Gotham has lowered compared to the first season, the show is pulling in impressive numbers in multi-platform viewing. The second season is averaging 9 million viewers and is also doing quite well in the male demographic. The second season is ranking in the Top 10 entertainment programs among the 18-49 male demographic, and also in the Top 5 broadcast dramas among both the 18-49 and 18-34 male demographics.

I have been keeping up with the show and I do have to say that it has greatly improved. While the story follows James Gordon, it is the villains that make the show. Season two increased the focus on its over-the-top villains plucked from the pages of DC Comics and it did wonders for the overall story. Gotham is a show that doesn’t need to take itself too seriously because doing that will only work to highlight the absurdity of everything the characters have to go through.

Details about what to expect from the third season of Gotham haven’t been revealed yet, but it is safe to assume that mainstay villains like the Penguin and Hugo Strange will return. And while a young Bruce Wayne has been making progress I don’t think we will get to see him become the Batman just yet. They might do a time skip and show Bruce putting on the cape, but that will probably be after a few more seasons or perhaps in the show’s finale.

Do you watch Gotham? What are your thoughts about the upcoming third season? Let us know!
