The origin story of the greatest DC Super-Villains and vigilantes, GOTHAM reveals an entirely new chapter that has never been told. The series follows the rise of GCPD Detective James Gordon (series star BEN McKENZIE) through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, while also chronicling the birth of one of the most popular Super Heroes of our time.
With fellow GCPD Detective Harvey Bullock (series star DONAL LOGUE), Jim Gordon stands at the forefront of the fight against the city's most depraved and unhinged villains – Penguin (series star ROBIN LORD TAYLOR); Edward Nygma/The Riddler (series star CORY MICHAEL SMITH), Barbara Kean (series star ERIN RICHARDS), as well as the future Catwoman, Selina Kyle (series star CAMREN BICONDOVA). Meanwhile, a young Bruce Wayne (series star DAVID MAZOUZ) begins to assume responsibility for the city's well-being. With the help of his ever-faithful butler Alfred Pennyworth (series star SEAN PERTWEE) and quiet support of Lucius Fox (series star CHRIS CHALK), he will step forward toward his destiny.
The fifth and final season premiere of GOTHAM wraps up the iconic series in a farewell event that focuses on Bruce Wayne's ultimate transformation into the Caped Crusader. Following the events of last season, GOTHAM: Legend of the Dark Knight picks up with Gotham City split amongst Jim Gordon and the GCPD, and some of the most notorious fan-favorite villains, as the heroes try to gain control and salvage what's left of the deteriorating city. This season also introduces new villains, including the iconic Bane (recurring guest star SHANE WEST).
