THR's Lesley Goldberg tweeted that per his sources, it appears that Gotham may still have some legs left for a final bout allowing the series to get syndicated thanks to its 100 episode benchmark. I guess all good things must come to an end. FOX dropped Lucifer like a hot potato, surprising everyone, andLucifer's numbers are a lot better than Gotham's are.
It was a huge week for Fox, which made some big and shocking decisions with many of its shows.
Producers of Gotham are prepared to wrap everything up in the fifth and final season of Gotham, but the story is only truly beginning. Indeed, syndication can be a lucrative venture, and no doubt Warner Bros.
The renewal is somewhat surprising given the show's ratings, and the fact that Fox has been swinging its axe with reckless abandon.

The network did not say how many episodes are in the order.
What do you think about this Gotham season 5 renewal and are you glad to see it happening?
The show always premieres in Fox's traditional late September release window, usually right around the autumnul equinox. Fan-favorite comedies like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick were cancelled, while the headline-grabbing Lethal Weapon was renewed for a third season with a completely new star replacing former star Clayne Crawford.
Starring Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Camren Bicondova, Morena Baccarin and scores of others, Gotham airs Thursday nights at 8/7c, with its Season 4 finale set for May 17.
