Production wraps on Gotham’s 100th and final episode
The Batman prequel series Gotham has wrapped production on its final episode. Tze Chun, who works as a producer/writer/director on the long-running series took to Twitter to announce the milestone, complete with a cake celebrating the 100-episode milestone.
The show is wrapping up its five-season run starting early in 2019, concluding the tale of a young cop (and future Commissioner), James Gordon. The 100th episode milestone means the show is eligible to live on in syndication in other networks.
It’s also been confirmed that actor Shane West’s character “Eduardo Dorrance” is actually none other than the back-breaking villain Bane, and in fact will end up inflicting his trademark injury on one of the characters in the series. Finally, it was confirmed that the series finale for the show will leap ahead ten years in the future, featuring Bruce Wayne’s final transformation into Batman!
Gotham stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Robin Lord Taylor as The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/the Riddler, Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan, Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox, Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean/Solomon Grundy, Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Ah Ghul, and Crystal Reed as Sofia Falcone.
Gotham is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and John Stephens serve as executive producers on the series.
The fifth and final season of Gotham will premiere on FOX on January 3, 2019.
