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 (21) | Top Critics (2)

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…

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Gotham: Season 4

  • 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.
  • Apr 19, 2019
    This season has done a great job. It introduced Scarecrow and Professor Pyg with great storytelling and design. And the story with Jeremiah and the epic beginning of the No Man's Land event brought a lot of fun to the show and it's a phenomenal development for season 5.
  • Mar 04, 2019
    Continues to re-invent and develop characters in a way never seen before on television. Storylines stronger than in previous seasons continue to elevate this show.
  • Feb 19, 2019
    Season four ends strong with Bruce beginning to transition to the Dark Knight, and the Joker's introduction to this season is quite spectacular. One of the best portrayals of joker, ranking up there with Heath Ledger.
  • Jan 25, 2019
    This season was just as long as the others and it did felt chore like, but it presents the viewer with multiple antagonists, which keeps the interest of the general audience going until the end of the season. The acting was very respectful, and flawless even in emotional scenes as well. It gives characters more depth to see what they had to go through and who have they become. The fact that the director's cinematographic style was boring is made up by the fact of how he twisted and turned the plot around using all the characters and not just using one's point of view. Although this damages batman's real comic book accuracy, because some times it goes to far, and pushes an event to the distance where it didn't happen in the comics. This is the main fact holding back this serial being a lot better. Writing is boring and some times interesting, but the dark Gotham style humor was there, but sadly sometimes like misfire. Overall this could have been an amazing season for this show but the faults barely let him have a "good" rating. Conclusion is missing and the cliffhanger strategy has become cliche which also doesn't help the serial.
  • Jan 22, 2019
    Gotham season 4 is the best the joker and Bruce wanye is getting bigger every season
  • Jan 20, 2019
    Gotham season 4 is amazing adn epic. Wonderful!
  • Oct 30, 2018
    great show and fun to watch!
  • Oct 13, 2018
    Sets up for a brilliant final season, watching the characters Bruce Wayne and his future villains grow has been brilliant seeing those characters develop. Ben Mckenzies portrayal of the rise of Jim Gordon has been my highlight as he's a character who only has cameos in the films and I strongly believe Ben Mckenzie deserves to play the role of Jim Gordon in a film if they decide to start Batman from scratch.
