James Gordon stands alone in a devastated city in the new poster for Gotham’s fifth & final season

Gotham lies in ruins as the final season of the DC Comics series prepares to launch in 2019

Gotham

Things haven’t really been all that quiet or calm in the city of Gotham ever since the pre-Batman police procedural Gotham began to give into it’s crazier instincts all the way back in season one. For the fifth and final season though, everything has been turned upside down.

Following the detonation of bombs throughout the city by Jeremiah Valeska, Gotham is in ruins and cut off from the world as the series adapts the comic book storyline No Man’s Land, which is fully on display for the series new poster. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) stands at the edge of a destroyed bridge, the city crumbling behind him as it’s been left to the control of villains.

Gotham Season 5

A DC Comics event back in 1999, No Man’s Land saw the federal government seal off and abandon Gotham City (keeping anyone from leaving or entering) following a cataclysmic earthquake that devastated the city. Just like with Gotham, the villains that usually plagued the city took over portions of the city as their domains leaving the people still in Gotham at their mercy. While the comic had Batman to come in and still protect them eventually, the citizens of Gotham in the show will have to rely on the small police force behind Gordon as well as a young Bruce Wayne that is very close to finally becoming Batman.

As this is the final season, reportedly there might even be a time jump at some point that will see David Mazouz’s Bruce grow up enough to become the hero he’s meant to be.

Gotham returns for its final season in January 2019.
