Fox has announced that Gotham is getting a full twenty-two episodes for it’s first season.
The series was originally planned to have sixteen episodes in its first season, but based off the success that the show has had in its first couple of weeks, Fox is wasting no time in extending the first season by an additional six episodes.
The announcement came from Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group, who had this to say:
“GOTHAM debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason. Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we’ve never seen before. We are so excited to see where Bruno, Danny and the entire GOTHAM team take this story over the course of this season, and so thankful to all the fans who have embraced it this fall.”
The next episode of Gotham airs tonight on Fox.
