Each season of the series, which launches on Fox in the US later this month, will become available to Netflix members in each of the countries in which it operates following the show’s linear broadcast, beginning in 2015.

Gotham draws on the origin story of Batman, taking place in Gotham City as young Detective (and future Commissioner) James Gordon and the recently orphaned Bruce Wayne meet in the troubled days before the arrival of the Dark Knight.

The cast includes Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Sean Pertwee.

Rights were acquired in a deal with Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution.

  • It looks interesting. I think I’ll have to see it on FOX or online though, because I don’t have netflix. I recently wrote a post on the show too.
