Small Screen BATMAN Prequel Series GOTHAM Ordered To Series By Fox

Small Screen BATMAN Prequel Series GOTHAM Ordered To Series By Fox

The pilot - which we were lucky enough to see plenty of set photos from - has obviously gone down well with Fox, as they have confirmed today that Gotham has been picked up for a first season. That series focuses on a young Jim Gordan and Bruce Wayne after the murder of his parents.


It's official! As expected, a full season of Gotham has been picked up by Fox. Why isn't this news a surprise? Well, the network would have had to pay a hefty penalty had it not been ordered to series, but despite that, they obviously wouldn't have moved ahead with something they're not happy with which should give us all a reason to look forward to Gotham debuting this Fall. Ben McKenzie will front the series as Detective James Gordon, and he'll be joined by Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett Smith as crime boss Fish Mooney, David Mazouz as Young Bruce Wayne, Sean Pertwee as Wayne family servent Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (a.k.a. The Penguin), Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman), Erin Richards as Gordon’s fiancée Barbara Kean, Zabryna Guevara as Gotham PD Captain Essen and guest star Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma (a.k.a. The Riddler). Are you guys excited?
