Channel 5 have officially announced the launch date of season 2 of Gotham in the UK and Ireland. The show will return on Monday the 11th of January at the later time slot of 10PM. This later slot on a Monday night takes the show out of a ratings battle with Walking Dead which airs at 9PM on rival channel Fox TV UK. Also included in the announcement was that all 22 episodes of the TV show will air with no breaks to the end of Season 2. You can hear our reviews of the first four episodes of Season 2 from episode one here Gotham Damned If You Do Podcast or subscribe on iTunes for the show at gothamtvpodcast.com/itunes
Channel 5 has also released a brand new creepy season 2 trailer for the show.
ORIGINAL STORY: In a surprising message on their Twitter and Facebook page Channel 5 have announced that the Gotham Season 2 UK release date has been moved from the originally announced Autumn 2015 slot to some time in 2016.
Gotham: The Rise of the Villains, as Season 2 of the successful TV show has been subtitled, launched in the United States on Fox and in Canada on CTV with overall positive reaction from fans of the show.
No reason for the unexpected move has been provided. Gotham Season 1 is currently showing on Netflix in the UK and Ireland and the show recently finished it’s run on RTÉ2 the national broadcaster in Ireland. It’s understood that Channel 5 own the exclusive broadcast rights for Gotham so UK Gothamites may have to wait a long time to catch up with their favourite characters.
We will update this story as soon as we know what this means for our coverage of the show.
In the meantime have a listen to our brand new interview with Drew Powell who plays Butch Gilzean on Gotham to keep going until we have some further news.
