It looks like the beginning of Caped Crusader is coming to an end.

Gotham tells the story of a young Bruce Wayne at the start of his journey to becoming the Batman. The series will be back for a fifth season consisting of 13 episodes due to premiere in the midseason.

It stars Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Morena Baccarin, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Jessica Lucas, Chris Chalk, Drew Powell, Alexander Siddig and Crystal Reed.

“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.”

One of the essentials elements of the shows success was its Netflix distribution deal that was signed before its premiere. The deal meant that Gotham was distributed internationally by Netflix as well as previous episodes being made available for streaming in the US by Netflix.
