May 14 (UPI) -- Fox has renewed Batman prequel series Gotham for a fifth and final season.
The series followed Ben McKenzie as future Batman ally James Gordon as he encounters a number of classic villains such as The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) and The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), during his early days as a police detective.
"The fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told," Fox said in a statement.
"We have the best fans in the world. Good work guys. #gothamseasonfive," McKenzie said on Twitter Sunday after Gotham was renewed.
