The next season of Gotham will be its last.

While Fox announced a Gotham Season 5 for next year, the network also confirmed the series will not be returning for a season six.

“The fifth and final season will wrap up this unique origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, which revealed an entirely new chapter that has never been told,” Fox said.

News of Gotham ending doesn't come as that much of a surprise as the ratings weren't all that good for a network show. The series recently moved from airing on Monday nights to Thursday nights and averaged 3.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 age coveted advertiser demographic. 

Update: It's being said the final season of Gotham will consist of 13 episodes (from the normal 22) and air mid-season next year focusing on Bruce Wayne's transformation into Batman.

Fox also announced additional cancellations including The Exorcist, Lucifer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick and The Last Man on Earth.

Lethal Weapon did get renewed with the announcement that American Pie actor Seann William Scott will be replacing Clayne Crawford.
