Fox Extends Gotham Season Order to Twenty-Two Episodes

Good news, Gotham fans, Fox just ordered six more episodes of the popular Batman prequel series, elongating the first season from sixteen to twenty-two episodes.

 

The Gotham premiere had one of the strongest ratings of the fall, drawing in over eight million viewers. The ratings fell by 13% in the second week, which is considered to be standard for a new show. It's also received critical acclaim, garnering a 91% on the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes and the consensus: "High production values, a talented cast, and an appealingly stylized approach to the Batman mythos help Gotham overcome its occasionally familiar themes."

 

The fourth episode of Gotham airs tonight at 8pm on Fox.
