Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them.” which includes Supergirl.
Fox Entertainment president David Madden said this about the renewal for Gotham Season 3 in this following 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. This incredibly talented cast has redefined these iconic characters for a new generation, and we couldn’t be more proud of this show.”
While the Season 2 finale date has yet to be announced, it’s most likely going to be on Monday, May 16. Since the show’s return from their big hiatus, Gotham has introduced two major Batman villains in the second half of the season with Mr. Freeze (Nathan Darrow) and Dr. Hugo Strange (B.D. Wong).
