It’s no secret that “Gotham” was a very inconsistent show in terms of quality. The first season was only worth a watch due to Robin Lord Taylor‘s brilliant performance as Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin.
However, we can’t deny that the show is starting to get better in Season 2, even without the aid of other franchises.
During this year’s Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour at Pasadena in California, Fox chairman and CEO Gary Newman revealed that the network would “certainly be open to considering” potential “Gotham” spinoffs.
We’re really happy with the creative on “Gotham” this year. We thought the “Rise of the Villains” has been great, and it feels like a world that has many, many stories to tell.
“We haven’t had any conversations with Warner (Brothers) about whether or not they’d want to do a spin-off series. I think that would be an issue for DC. It isn’t quite clear to me that they’d be ready to do that, but it’s a good idea,” he added.
The CW was able to develop 2 spin-off series namely “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” based on “Arrow“. ABC is also developing a spin-off series featuring Adrienne Palicki’s Mockingbird from “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”.
Since “Gotham” features a huge array of characters from the DC Universe, it’s hard to tell which character is going to get a spin-off. The character has to be popular enough to be getting his/her own spin-off series as well.
“Gotham: Rise of the Villains” will return with all-new episodes on 29th February 2016.
