After being set for a midseason return for its fifth and final season, Gotham now has a Season 5 premiere date.
According to the official television programming guide, epguides.com, the DC Comics adaptation will premiere for its final season on March 15, 2019.
The series was renewed for its fifth season this past May prior to its Season 4 finale with a shortened episode order of ten new episodes.
The upcoming season is expected to pick up after the events of the fourth season finale left the titular city devastated and isolated from the rest of the country by a series of bombs. Combining the classic Batman story "No Man's Land" as well as the more recent Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo story "Zero Year", the final season will see Bruce Wayne embrace his destiny as the city's protector while the villainous Bane makes his arrival.
Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth. It is scheduled to return on Fox for its fifth and final season on March 15, 2019.
