Fox Entertainment President David Madden announced plans Wednesday to bring back the hit drama series “Gotham” for a third season.
The network also announced that Paul Reubens, known for his Pee-Wee Herman character, will begin a guest arc on the series March 21.
The series is averaging 9 million total viewers across multiple platforms, ranking among this season’s Top 10 entertainment programs overall in Men 18-49, and among the season’s Top 5 broadcast dramas in Men 18-49 and Men 18-34, the network noted.
“Gotham,” which tells the origin stories of DC Comics characters, comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller, with director and executive producer Danny Cannon and executive producer John Stephens also behind the cameras.
Said Madden: “It takes a very special team to tell the tales of ‘Gotham.’ For the past two seasons, Bruno, Danny and John have masterfully honored the mythology of ‘Gotham’ and brought it to life with depth, emotion and memorable high drama. This incredibly talented cast has redefined these iconic characters for a new generation, and we couldn’t be more proud of this show.”
