Why was Gotham not renewed for season 6?
Though the fans had demanded for the sixth season, the season was not receiving good ratings right from the 4th season. So Fox in May 2018 announced that the show will be wrapped and the 5th season will be the finale season.
It is also said that the rating dropped because when the show began,initially it was more about James Gordon and his early life but later it was more inclined to batman and batman franchise.
The fifth season was given a proper ending without any cliffhangers.There’s a transition in Bruce Wayne to Batman and also Gordon is portrayed as the moustached policeman (Gordon’s iconic look as described in the DC comics)
The chances of renewal of Gotham for a 6th installment is in minus,but it depends if the makers wish to come back with a prequel,but there has not been any official announcement yet.
