Gotham is only one of the many additions to the booming rise of comic book television series and it’s looking as if there will be more to come following the news of latest acquisitions of comic book properties Lucifer by FOX, Titans by TNT and Supergirl by CBS. Amidst the many comic properties that are returning or arriving on television this season are CW’s Arrow, The Flash and later to air iZombie, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and mid season arrival Marvel’s Agent Carter, FOX’s Gotham, NBC’s Constantine and AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Based on one of the most iconic comic book properties of the past 75 years FOX’s Gotham is possibly the most anticipated Television series of the upcoming Fall season. With a great starting line up of Ben Mckenzie, Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett-Smith in the ensemble cast, this series already has a foothold on quality television but then add to the mix a film neo noir style atmosphere and it’s a likely hit series.
The series has already been picked up for a full season order of sixteen episodes with possibility for increased order for it’s second season, should it get one, so it will surely have a fair chance to work its charm on Television audiences. Even skeptic fans of the show, who may not see much value in a prequel series that does not feature Batman in his costumed exploits, can look forward to Gotham having a roster of characters directly from the comic books with all of the stories that would come from it. Such as popular Gotham Central characters Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen and rogue gallery villains such as Edward Nigma (aka The Riddler) and Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin).
Gotham has released it’s last string of promo clips just before the premiere tomorrow. Check out the six pilot clips below and get excited for Gotham season starting this Monday September 22nd, 2014 at 8pm EST on FOX.
