Fox’s ‘Gotham‘ is about to enter its fifth and final season and to help celebrate the final episode the showrunners are allowing Ben McKenzie who plays Jim Gordon on the series to write the last episode of the series. The actor confirmed that he’d be picking up a pen and getting to work at Rhode Island Comic-Con. This will mean that the actor has not only starred in the series and directed two episodes but will now have written two of them as well as he was previously responsible for penning 2017’s “A Dark Knight: The Demon’s Head.”
Clare Kramer confirmed the details in the tweet below:

While the original 8-episode season was extended to 10, there is a lot to cover before the final credits roll. I’m very curious as to where we’ll see the heroes and villains of the series end up when things finally come to an end.
Are you excited that Ben McKenzie will be writing the final chapter of ‘Gotham’? Do you think that the series will end on a high note or are they once again trying to cram too much in? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
With Gotham on the brink of total anarchy and cut off from the outside world, only Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne and a handful of heroes remain behind to retake the city. Inspired by the “No Man’s Land” arc from the comics, villains including Penguin, the Riddler, the Sirens and Jeremiah have taken claim on various regions of the city. Will order be restored, or will chaos reign in Gotham?
‘Gotham’ returns to Fox for its fifth and final season on January 3rd, 2019!
