Season 4 of Fox’s DC drama Gotham will premiere on September 21 in the series’ new Thursday 8 PM time period. It will be followed by the time period premiere of Seth MacFarlane’s new space dramedy series, The Orville.

Fox’s new Thursday lineup originally was slated to debut during premiere week, on September 28. But with The Orville launching with a special two-night premiere on back-to-back Sundays, September 10 and 17, immediately following NFL doubleheaders, that would’ve created an 11-day gap between the second Sunday airing and the time slot debut of the sci-fi series. The time gap now has been cut to four days.

Season 4 of Gotham will witness the emergence of the criminal landscape for which Gotham City is best known, with Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) at the forefront of the fight against the most depraved and unhinged villains. While Gotham City fights for normalcy, a new hero will rise, as Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) begins to assume responsibility for the city’s well-being.

Gotham is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer Bruno Heller wrote the pilot. John Stephens serves as an executive producer and showrunner on the series.
