Gotham and Last Man on Earth Renewed by Fox

at .

If you have been collectively holding your breath for a particular drama and half-hour comedy at Fox to be renewed, and those were Gothan and Last Man on Earth, you can breathe again.

Both have been renewed for fourth seasons at the network.


Fox was making Gotham fans squirm with their pickup rationale.

Freshman series and Lethal Weapon and sophomore series Lucifer (both also from Warner Bros. TV) had already been renewed, and Marvel series The Gifted was picked up to series just the other day.

It was hard not to think something may have gone awry, however unlikely, during the renegotiation process.

But no, Gotham Season 4 is on the way.

Meet The Riddler - Gotham Season 3 Episode 17

Not only does that mean the Batman prequel from the DC Universe will be airing alongside a Marvel series on the same network, but the possibility actually exists that they could air on the same night!

OK, it's not probable, but it's possible, and that's kind of cool.

Gotham began airing and still resides on Mondays where it's averaging 5.3 million total viewers and a 1.9 in the demo. Very respectable after three years.


Will Forte's end of the world as we know it comedy Last Man on Earth was also renewed.

The comedy, which stars Forte, Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra Coleman was expected to come back even though it's not growing in audience season to season.

From 20th Century Fox Television, it joins The Mick, also renewed.

Other news out of Fox today includes the pickup of half-hour comedies Ghosted, starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott, a spoof about an X-Files like duo who investigate paranormal activity that ultimately leads to their discovery of a larger mystery that could mean the end of the human race.

Workplace comedy LA to Vegas was also picked up. It's an unconventional look at people hoping to win big and focuses on the regulars who take the round trip weekend from Los Angeles to Vegas.

The Resident

Medical drama, The Resident, starring Matt Czuchry, Manish Dayal, Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp and Shaunette Wilson was also picked up.

It centers on a tough, brilliant senior resident who guides an idealistic young doctor (Dayal) through his first day, pulling back the curtain on what really happens, both good and bad, in modern-day medicine.

It's been an incredibly busy day for the networks, so don't miss out on all of the news posted on TV Fanatic today.

If you have to catch up on Gotham, now is the time. 

You can rest assured you have plenty of time to watch Gotham online before you run out of exciting episodes!!
