With the premiere of Gotham's fifth and final season less than a month away, the cast and crew of the Fox series are celebrating the end of principal photography on the DC Comics prequel this week.
To commemorate the final day of filming yesterday, stars David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee rented a Belgian waffle food truck to treat the cast and crew to build-your-own waffles as part of the series wrap party. The surprise was shared by actor Andrew Sellon, who portrays Mister Penn, on the actor's Instagram account.

Watching the last few hours of @gothamonfox filming was unforgettable. I’ll share pix and video after Season 5 airs. It was a family experience, including awareness of love from our fans. Heartfelt speeches, reminiscing, hugging, laughter, and a few tears. In a typical sweet gesture, @seanpertwee and @davidamazouz rented us a Belgian Waffle truck! What a magical group of people. I hope all our paths cross again soon on new projects. I‘ll miss everyone. But what a satisfying final season we have for you! ❤️🤓🎉 #mrpenngotham #MisterPenn
