Fox's comic book prequel series Gotham has been a critical darling in its season and a half run on the primetime network, and has also seen an increase in fan support for the show.
The issue, however, is that the ratings have seen a general decline since the pilot, causing true fans of the show to worry about its future on the channel. Fans can rejoice, however, as Fox has seen the consistent numbers of its second season and has turned this into a third season renewal.
Comic book shows have become a major staple in today's TV programing, and Gotham has always been an intriguing one to study due to its prequel setting not based on any specific comics, instead changing many of the character's origins to fit the universe it's developing.
Personally, I think the show has been good from the get-go, but it's actually getting better as it goes on, with the introduction of key villains such as Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange this season making it an even more thrilling and exciting show to watch every week.
Fox didn't announce how many episodes the third season would have, but fans can hope they keep it at the same 22-episode order the last two seasons have received.
Knowing the show's expansion on villains, it would be great to see some of Batman's big baddies finally come into play, hopefully Bane or Calendar Man.
