Fox has announced that Gotham will be returning for a fourth season on the network.
Over the course of its third season, Gotham has averaged 3.5 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating. That, of course, is a far cry from the 8 million viewers and 3.2 rating among adults 18-49 from the series premiere back in 2014. While the show has continued to see its viewership decline over the years, it has stabilized recently and is on par with the ratings for Lucifer, another Fox series that was renewed back in February.
The renewal shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Back in April, Entertainment Weekly reported that the series was set to see a season four order as the otherwise low ratings were still considered acceptable for the struggling network.
With a fourth season now confirmed, expect to see the Batman prequel series expand the Sirens roster, as previously teased by actress Jessica Lucas, who plays Tabitha Galavan on the series. In an interview with Heroic Hollywood, the actress revealed that, while she isn’t entirely sure as of yet, she believes that it is the plan to see the Sirens roster expand next season.
Gotham will air its season three finale on June 5.
Starring Ben McKenzie as Detective Jim Gordon, “Gotham” airs Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on Fox. The series also stars David Mazouz as young Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as young Selina Kyle, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins and Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney.
