The season finale of Gotham is just a little over a month away and it looks like the events in the final three episodes of Season 4 will have major effects on the show’s future.
The current season of the hit show has given fans a taste of the future of Bruce Wayne, he is so close to becoming Batman. Add in Selena Kyle developing feelings for Bruce and her own destiny as Catwoman has begun taking shape.
Despite Gotham not officially been renewed for a fifth season, show executive producer Danny Cannon says he major changes coming to Gotham in the event of a fifth and possibly final season.
“Like I said, the catastrophic event, the cataclysmic event that happens in the last three episodes not only will change Gotham,” Cannon told ComicBook.com. “It not only combines so many characters that you don’t think will cooperate with each other, but it changes the face of Gotham forever, so that season five, it’s almost a reboot and a different show.”
Cannon went to reassure fans that the cast will remain the same in a possible season five reboot. Instead, the change will come to the storylines.
“Our characters have reached a maturity now, our characters are so well defined and that’s why I think as writers, that’s right about the point when you want to change people’s perception of them,” Cannon said.
In Thursday night’s show, Ra’s Al Ghul was brought back to life and reclaimed the Demon’s Head from Barbara Kean. He visited Bruce and Selena, telling them that he saw in the future a cataclysmic and catastrophic for the city. The outcome would be Bruce turning into a ‘Dark Knight.’
Is the “No Man’s Land” storyline coming to the small screen?
In the comics, an Earthquake hit Gotham and the government comes in to take control of things. However, some of the most dangerous criminals also escape and take control of different areas of the city. Batman does his best to come in and save the day.
Gotham airs on Fox in the US and E4 in the UK.
