In the just-arrived trailer for the swan-song season, it’s clear that the Gotham of television is approaching the era depicted in the silver-screen versions when it becomes notorious as the haunting hometown of a mysterious Caped Crusader.
“However dark and scary the world might be right now,” Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) tells a young, anguished Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), “there is light.”
The series is from executive producer and writer Bruno Heller and executive producers Danny Cannon and John Stephens and it’s followed the rise of lawman Gordon in a city festering with corruption and teetering between good and evil.
The farewell season takes Wayne to the dawn of his costumed crime-fighting career as Batman, the iconic DC Comics character who celebrates his 80th year of publication in 2019.
The Fox series also stars Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock; Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth; Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin; Erin Richards as Barbara Kean; David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne; Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman; Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/The Riddler; Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox; Morena Baccarin as Lee Thompkins; Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan; Cameron Monaghan as Jerome/Jeremiah Valeska; David W. Thompson as Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow; and Shane West as Eduardo Dorrance/Bane.
