The final season of Gotham is around the corner and fans are still looking forward to many of their questions to get answered, as Bruce moves towards his transformation into the iconic Batman.
The series now has only 10 episodes to achieve this, as compared to regular 22-episode earlier seasons. The final season will show the move from Man-Bat to the Dark Knight as it will bring the series to an end. Or at least that’s the plan according to the man behind it: David Mazouz.
“They do, they do,” Mazouz said during a set visit. “I’m not going to answer that one because I don’t want to give that away.
“I think that’s kind of a big decision and I’m excited for people to see it and I don’t want to give it away.”
The final arc of the series will take place during the ‘No Man’s Land’ comic-inspired storyline, which will show Gotham broken into factions led by various villains. And now, everything is up to the four “good guys” to save their city.
John Stephens, who is the executive producer of the series also revealed that the elements in the final season will have a major influence on the storyline.
“It does drive season 5. It’s very similar. It’s obviously inspired by the books,” he said. “So it’s a world in which Gotham has been cut off from the rest of the United States, and all the essential elements of life like food, clothing, shelter and, then in our world, obviously, ammunition are at a premium or a scarce. And so everyone is fighting for survival, and it brings all the relationships between the characters much greater contrast than ever before.”
The beginning of the season will show Jim Gordon singlehandedly fighting crime with his partners Lucius Fox and Harvey Dent along with the protagonist, Bruce Wayne. Selina and Alfred are in a hospital, where Selina is currently healing from stabbing injuries.
The storyline will show an evolution of many characters, including Bruce Wayne.
“There are things that I’ll always kind of miss doing for all of the different characters or beats of … honestly, all of the characters who we just didn’t get to play quite as much as would have wanted to because we’re doing 10 hours rather than 22,” he said. “But it’ll always exist in my mind.”
“(With Bruce) we go pretty far,” he said. “Yeah. Stick around to the last episode. Yeah, we go pretty far.”
