Apparently Fox has a lot of confidence in Gotham after only three episodes have aired. They have ordered six more episodes, effectively extending the season from 16 to 22 episodes. Hopefully a full season will yield a second season and beyond.
“GOTHAM debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason. 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,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. “We are so excited to see where Bruno, Danny and the entire GOTHAM team take this story over the course of this season, and so thankful to all the fans who have embraced it this fall.”
The official Gotham Facebook page had this bit of information to share:
GOTHAM is tied as Monday night’s No. 1 drama among Adults 18-49 and is this season’s No. 1 broadcast drama overall among Men 18-49 – a full rating point ahead of the No. 2 drama in that demographic. The debut episode, which exploded into Premiere Week with a 6.0/18 rating among Adults 18-49, outperformed “Blacklist” and “Scorpion” and delivered FOX’s highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years. This Live +7 rating reflects the largest post-three-day ratings gain (+0.9) of any broadcast drama, ever. In addition, GOTHAM’s premiere drew 14.1 million viewers in the first seven days and has been streamed more than two million times to date on FOX NOW and Hulu. The show’s second and third episodes continued this positive trend, each delivering a 4.0 rating or higher in just the first three days, making it one of the Top Three dramas overall on broadcast television this season.
Gotham airs Mondays on Fox. You can catch a new episode titled “Arkham” tonight.
