Fox orders full season of Gotham

I swear it’s not because of a younger cat woman, but I’m warming to Gotham


Gotham Cast

Gotham already had a larger-than-normal 16-episode original order, so it has now been picked up for six more episodes to bring its total to a full-season 22. (Standard order sizes are 13 for initial order and nine for back order.

Gotham, a Batman universe origin story, is tied as Monday night’s No. 1 drama among adults 18-49, and its debut jumped to a 6.0 rating in the demo in Live+7, only a tenth behind HTGAWM as the second-highest-rated drama telecast during Premiere Week. It was Fox’s highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years.

Gotham, from writer/executive producer Bruno Heller, director/executive producer Danny Cannon and Warner Bros. TV, stars Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith. “Gotham debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason,” said Fox TV Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman. “Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich 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.”
