I'm happy to report that Fox has decided to renew their Batman origin story Gotham for a third season! I love what they are doing with this show, and it's great to know that the story of these characters will continue.
The show is doing well and is currently averaging 9 million viewers. The series ranks among this season’s top ten entertainment programs among men 18-49 and is in the season’s top five broadcast dramas among men 18-49 and men 18-34, according to Fox and Nielsen. David Madden, Fox’s President said this in a statement:
“It takes a very special team to tell the tales of Gotham. For the past two seasons, Bruno, Danny and John have masterfully honored the mythology of Gotham and brought it to life with depth, emotion and memorable high drama."
Gotham follows Jim Gordon's rise through "a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time."
This is one of those shows that I don't want to end prematurely. Bruno Heller set out to tell the story of these characters and show the long road of Bruce Wayne and his slow transformation into Batman as well as the villains he'll be taking on in the future. I just want to get to see Heller's vision for this series fully realized. The fact that we are getting a third season is a good sign.
