With Gotham yet to be officially renewed for a fifth season by FOX, executive producer Danny Cannon has teased big changes for the future of the show following season 4 wrapping up later this spring.
The season 4 finale is titles “No Man’s Land” and Cannon has been discussing it in a recent interview:
“Like I said, the catastrophic event, the cataclysmic event that happens in the last three episodes not only will change Gotham, it not only combines so many characters that you don’t think will cooperate with each other, but it changes the face of Gotham forever, so that season five, it’s almost a reboot and a different show,” Cannon told ComicBook.
“Our characters have reached a maturity now, our characters are so well defined and that’s why I think as writers, that’s right about the point when you want to change people’s perception of them,” Cannon continued. “The [term] ‘reboot’ means, just when you thought you knew people, something else will happen, and just when you thought your Season 5 would be like Season 4, Season 5 is completely different. New characters and old characters that have changed. It’s a complete [departure], and the city has changed too, new characters on a new landscape.”
“We’re building to something much bigger,” Cannon added. “It’s the biggest cliff-hanger we’ve done. I mean, there has to be Season 5. Everything points to that because it’s set up in that way.”
Well here’s hoping FOX get around to announcing a season 5 soon, as judging by these comments there a lot to be excited about.
