Fox’s Gotham returns on Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT with an episode titled “Year Zero.” In support of the upcoming premiere of the show’s final season, Fox just released a new lengthy Gotham: Legend of the Dark Knight trailer. The network also unveiled a batch of photos from the first episode.
Season five of the dark and gritty comic book-inspired series stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, and Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/The Riddler.
The final season cast also includes Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Morena Baccarin as Lee Thompkins, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Cameron Monaghan as Jerome/Jeremiah Valeska, and David W. Thompson as Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow. Shane West joins the series as Eduardo Dorrance/Bane.
Executive producer John Stephens confirmed at the 2018 New York Comic Con that the series will end with a 10-year time jump. “The whole 10th episode takes place 10 years in the future,” explained John Stephens during our roundtable interview. “It’s all of our characters as we would see them when Batman arrives.”
Details on Season 5:
“Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer and writer Bruno Heller and executive producers Danny Cannon and John Stephens, Gotham follows the rise of Det. James Gordon (McKenzie) through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Beginning in this January, Gotham will air its fifth and final season, wrapping up this beloved series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s (Mazouz) transformation into the caped crusader.”
