The fifth and final season is sitting at a perfect 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, with 10 fresh ratings, zero rotten ratings and an average score of 7.57/10. Meanwhile, the audience score is a similarly impressive 83 percent. This is compared to an overall series rating of 82 percent from critics and 80 percent from audiences.

Nevertheless, while Season 5 of Gotham is wowing critics and audiences alike, one can't help but remember that it almost didn't come to fruition. In May 2018, Fox dropped the ax on a number of series, including fan-favorites such as Lucifer and Brooklyn Nine-NineGotham was expected to join them on the chopping block due to a conflict with Lethal Weapon, but in the eleventh hour, the series was renewed, albeit for an abridged final season.

Airing Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, 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.
