Gotham Series Finale: Batman Suits Up (and Speaks!) in First Promo — Watch

The end is near for Gotham… or is it just the beginning? That’s the riddle Fox poses in this first promo for the show’s final episode, airing next Thursday (8/7c). And yes, it’s a trick question.

For while the series may be reaching the end of its five-season road, our young Bruce Wayne is also beginning his own journey, finally transforming into the literal Dark Knight that his city desperately needs.

Here’s a full breakdown of what you can expect from Gotham‘s final hour:

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.


Though we’ve already gotten a first look (of sorts) at Batman, this new promo allows us to spend some quality milliseconds with grown-up Bruce and his spooky new voice.
