Fox has ordered six more episodes of this fall's breakout new drama series, Gotham, it was announced today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. The announcement raises the series order to 22 episodes. Here's what the Fox chairmen had to say about the renewal in a join statement.

Gotham is tied as Monday night's No. 1 drama »
Who needs Batman? Fox's "Gotham," an origin series about the villains populating Bruce Wayne's hometown, is doing just fine without the Caped Crusader, so much so that the network has ordered an additional six episodes of the series, bringing it to a full 22-episode season.
The freshman drama, which stars Ben McKenzie ("Southland," "The O.C.") as a young Jim Gordon, has been a ratings darling for Fox, setting records for its Live+7 numbers, and placing second only to ABC series "How to Get Away with Murder" as the highest-rated drama to debut during Premiere Week. "Murder" has also been picked up for a full season.
"Gotham"'s situation is unique, however, in that it was initially ordered for 16 episodes (not the traditional 13, plus potential for a back nine), and the series was always meant to have a lower episode count than traditional TV shows. But Fox was so pleased with its performance, »

Earlier today at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Ben McKenzie for Gotham. On the hit Fox show, McKenzie plays Detective James Gordon, and the show is about his rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil while introducing a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy. While all shows take a bit of time to find a rhythm that works, Gotham is loaded with a talented cast and executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), so I'm rooting for it. During the interview, McKenzie talked about why he wanted to take on the role after playing a cop on Southland, how he likes to approach things as an actor, what's coming up on future episodes, and he reveals that tomorrow night's episode introduces Arkham Asylum, saying it's »

"Somebody save me/I’ve been waiting for you"
If excitement about tonight's UK premiere of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham has got you caterwauling the lyrics to the Smallville theme tune on rooftops in anticipation, early whispers from fellow Bat-fans over in the Us who’ve had a look at the first episodes are saying there is much for us to look forward to as we wait for it to descend on Channel 5 here.
So far, we know that the timescale Gotham sticks with sees Batman as barely a notion to the boy-Bruce Wayne, and instead takes Detective James Gordon as its central character. Gordon here is a little different to the ‘Jim’ we’ve come to know, »
When Ray Donovan concluded its debut season I had lovingly likened the new crime series to be a combination of Entourage and The Sopranos. Now that season two has wrapped up I see the series heading into completely new and stranger territory, especially after an open-ended finale that seems to have simultaneously wrapped up every single season two subplot while shattering all notion of anything long-term being any closer to resolution. Creator and showrunner Ann Biderman (Southland) stepped down from her role this year as we head into a third season of Ray Donovan and I'm not sure if that's a death sentence or if we needed a fresh set of eyes in order to get this beast moving along. As exciting as season two was, by the time we found ourselves rushing to the finishing line, it felt like »

One of the most highly anticipated new shows of the season is the Fox drama series Gotham. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome) and with a beautifully cinematic pilot directed by Danny Cannon (the CSI franchise, Nikita), it is the origin story for a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy, as it shows what made them the formidable adversaries that they eventually become. At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. During this recent interview to promote the new show, actor Ben McKenzie talked about how he got involved with Gotham, how being a law officer in the city of Gotham compares to the L. »

Last week, the Television Critics Association named Fox's "Gotham" the most promising new show of the fall TV season. But does that mean you're going to tune in tonight? We were lucky enough to catch the pilot of Fox's new Batman dark and twisty prequel and we have to admit -- this new series has a lot of promise.
Here are 5 reasons "Gotham" is worth watching:
1. It Appeals to More Than Just Comic Book Fans
There's enough jam-packed in the "Gotham" pilot to make it work for even the non-superhero obsessed or those Batman novices out there. Sure, there are comic book elements and familiar faces to satisfy those looking for the DC connection, but this is a cop show about the crime-addled city of Gotham at its core. Detective James Gordon's quest to track down Bruce Wayne's parents' murderers is the focus here -- Batman isn't a part of this story yet. »

Ben McKenzie has gone from The O.C. to Southland to a fictionalized city riddled with crime on Fox's upcoming drama, Gotham. He's playing a young version of Detective Jim Gordon, years before the famous character becomes Gotham City's Commissioner and Batman's right-hand man. McKenzie recently hopped on the phone to chat with journalists about the show's upcoming villains, his concern about embarrassing himself with this part, and his strange connection to his onscreen partner, played by Donal Logue. Also, in case you were wondering, he totally can grow Gordon's signature mustache, but that doesn't mean he will. Here's what we learned! 1. The part of young Jim Gordon was written with him in mind. "I worked with Bruno [Heller, the creator] on a pilot last year when Southland was ending, and it didn't go to series. He called me this year in January or February and said, 'I have a script that I've written, »
Gotham, which debuts this week, is one of Fox's most-buzzed-about new shows - and for good reason. I saw the first episode of the Batman-inspired series, and there's a lot to love. The show revolves around James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as a young detective working his way up the ranks in Gotham. We meet him right as he and his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) take on the murder of Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents. The series premieres Monday, and if you like what you read below, you should definitely check out the trailer. It starts out with a bang . . . literally. Let's be clear about one thing: Gotham isn't the story of Batman. It's the story of James Gordon attempting to clean up the crime-ridden streets of Gotham before a superhero rises up to clear the scum away, and Gordon's story begins with the death of young Bruce's parents. I'm not giving much away here, »
With Gotham's pilot episode debuting on Monday night, Fox has released six more clips featuring brand new footage from this highly-anticipated series.
Watch as James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) discusses the Wayne family murder case with his fiancee Barbara Kean (Erin Richards), while the ruthless gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) torments one of her underlings. We also see James trying to get information out of Fish, later trying to console young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). All the while, his partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) tries to get out of the case.

Fox has released six new clips from the pilot episode of Gotham. They give you a much better taste of what the series is going to give Batman fans. Having seen the pilot episode, I think this is going to be a very successful series.

You may find other interviews in which "Gotham" star Ben McKenzie discusses the decision to go from a critically admired cop drama ("Southland") to playing a very different sort of officer-of-the-law in Fox's "Gotham." McKenzie has previously talked about the differences between playing a beat cop and a detective, though I think he does it extremely well in our video interview from last week. You may find other interviews in which McKenzie discusses the difficulties finding resources on Jim Gordon's backstory and how that allowed him freedom. I believe McKenzie has talked about his conversations with DC's Geoff Johns and the fact that Gordon won't be getting his trademark mustache any time soon, though he's very amusing in discussing it in this interview. ["At the end of the day, we all know a mustache on me would look ridiculous. It's only a look you can pull off later in your life," he explains.] But I'm prepared to guarantee you with near absolute certainty that this is the only Ben McKenzie interview you'll watch in which the "Gotham" star promises that »
