Tv Season Info

Season Four of GOTHAM will witness the emergence of the criminal landscape for which Gotham City is best known, with JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) and HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) at the forefront of the fight against the most depraved and unhinged villains. As the citizens of Gotham City fight for normalcy, a new hero begins to rise. BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), after completing his training with Temple Shaman (guest star Raymond J. Barry) and R'AS AH GHUL (Alexander Siddig), has decided that he is responsible for the city's well-being. With the help of his ever-faithful butler ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee) and quiet support of LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk), he will step into this role, all while building up his public persona of carefree socialite to avoid any suspicion among Gotham's citizens.

Critic Reviews for Gotham Season 4

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (2)

Gotham, it seems, is about to finally go full Gotham.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Gotham also suffers from too many threads all being tied off simultaneously, spreading attention spans too thin, drama too sparingly and character sympathies to breaking point.

Jan 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Pax Penguina got Gotham's fourth season off to a rough start. There were some promising elements, but overall this was a disappointment on many levels.

Oct 20, 2017 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

As fun as it is to see Bruce take the next step to becoming The Dark Knight, his hero's journey is missing an important part: the formation of the Bruce Wayne persona.

Oct 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"No Man's Land," isn't your typical season finale. It bucks the norm - and does so with flare.

Dec 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The most interesting aspects of the hour both feel underserved.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Gothamites, we ended strong, really, really strong, and thank goodness the show got a fifth season (even it will be the final season).

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Basically, Gotham all but blew up the status quo of the first half of Season 4, and it's difficult to predict just where the show will go when it returns in 2018.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Dammit, I love this show.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This season is really best described as a series of baffling missteps. As to why they would choose to have so many uncompelling villains crammed into this season, along with a number of directionless plotlines, is anyone's guess.

May 21, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Because, against all odds, "Pax Penguina" was a good hour of superhero television. It's the rare episode of Gotham that showed off the series' black humor strengths and found a way to play with various elements of the comic character's history.

Dec 12, 2017 | Full Review…

In this case, it's the might of the female villains who have become something you just don't want to look away from. Hopefully, that continues for as long as Gotham is around.

Audience Reviews for Gotham: Season 4

  • Jul 01, 2020
    Too many recycled characters, forced fights to show girl empowerment. Barbara never got fighting skills, then suddenly starts fighting better than Batman, without even training, she was mailed for God sake. Lee , 0 fighting skills , suddenly is a master of killing and skilled with dealing with criminals in a fight club and lead a team with Ed nygma, ridiculous. Barbara should be dead, and over. Not reborn as new character. Lee should be gone and loving a normal life.
  • Apr 23, 2020
    Completely unrealastic show in every way. The main villains stay alive no matter what, especially Penguin who scoffs and kills right infront of police face and they do nothing. Cops can't shoot or wont shoot, bad guys rule all day and night. I wonder how Gotham never ran out of people to kill who arent viallains. I wish they followed their own story instead of being so predictable to who lives or dies.
  • Apr 12, 2020
    This is the best Gotham season My grade: A
  • Feb 22, 2020
    Season 4 was the best! Bruce Is Full On Batman! (Well Kinda) and the characters are developed like crazy! With All New Characters and a few sad deaths along the way
  • Dec 19, 2019
    One of the best seasons besides Season 3. Cameron Monaghan's acting is phenomenal.
  • Oct 16, 2019
    This season would of been better if they didn't killed off Jerome Valaska and then later introduce to another character, his brother, played by the same actor. To me they should of leave Jerome's character alone and just have him be the main antagonist of the show.
  • Sep 08, 2019
    This is simply a lovely season, not much else.
  • Jul 10, 2019
    seeing Bruce growing up from a kid to an adult is something you wont find in any other live action version of batman and it is done perfectly here this season starts to show us a bit of the batman side of Bruce
  • May 20, 2019
    Brilliant series, love the change in the Batman mythos. It doesn't get stale like most shows.
  • May 08, 2019
    What the fuck happend to this series? Plot is as hard unlocial than every new character appering. This spits on all Batman originals
