They’d better open up Arkham Asylum — and quickly! Fox has ordered six additional episodes of Gotham, bringing the pre-Batman drama’s first season order to a full 22.
Gotham premiered last month to 8.2 million total viewers and a 3.2 demo rating, and with Live+3 DVR playback rose to a 5.0 rating.
“Gotham debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason,” reads a statement from Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. “Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we’ve never seen before.”
New episodes of Gotham air Mondays at 8/7c on Fox.
