The cast of Gotham would totally be down for a revival — which would presumably place more emphasis on Bruce Wayne now that he’s become Batman — provided that key talent from the series is also involved.
While talking at a Gotham panel at DragonCon, Harvey Bullock actor Donal Logue explained that he thinks that everyone would be willing to come back only if all of the main cast members were committed to returning to the series.
Donal Logue singled out the lead actor of the show, Ben McKenzie (James Gordon), as an absolute must if the show were to continue in some fashion.
“I think if the other people were involved, we’d absolutely be down to do it together. It would just get funky if it was [without them]. We were really very close and will remain so… It’d be hard to imagine doing this stuff without Ben [McKenzie].”
Robin Lord Taylor, who played Oswald Cobblepot AKA The Penguin, added:
“It’s a whole different world now, it’s insane. Nothing goes away anymore. And also, our show hits Netflix on September 30th, the final season comes out on Netflix September 30th, and people are just going to continue to discover the show.”
There are not plans to continue Gotham for the time being, especially as the big focus for DC’s gothic, grimy metropolis on television is with The CW’s Batwoman. But perhaps, down the road, DC Universe or HBO Max could use some new content to spice things up, and the show would likely fit well on a streaming platform.
Here is the official synopsis for the final episode of Gotham, titled “The Beginning.”
“The series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and The Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs in the all-new “The Beginning… ” series finale episode of Gotham.”
Gotham starred Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, Morena Baccarin as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/The Riddler, Cameron Monaghan as Jeremiah Valeska and Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox. The show aired on Fox, and the final season will debut on Netflix on September 30, 2019.
