Batman prequel Gotham is moving to E4 next month after the broadcaster struck a deal with rights owners Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.
The series, which stars Ben McKenzie as Detective Jim Gordon, David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne and Sean Pertwee as his ever-faithful butler Alfred, originally debuted on Channel 5.
Season four of Gotham witnesses the emergence of the criminal landscape for which Gotham City is best known, with Jim and fellow Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) at the forefront of the fight against the most depraved and unhinged villains – Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor); Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), Tabitha Galavan (Jessica Lucas), as well as the future Catwoman, Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova).
Also in the shadows this season are Butch Gilzean/Solomon Grundy (Drew Powell), Dr. Lee Thompkins (Morena Baccarin), and Sofia Falcone (Crystal Reed).
While Gotham City fights for normalcy, a new hero will rise. After completing his training with Ra’s al Ghul (Alexander Siddig), young Bruce Wayne begins to assume responsibility for the city’s well-being.
With the help of Alfred and quiet support of Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk), he will step into this role, all while building up his public persona of carefree socialite to avoid any suspicion among Gotham’s citizens.
The move to E4 means many of the show’s fans will be unable to watch in High Definition unless they wait for the new run to arrive on Netflix, which already offers the first three seasons.
