FOX has extra confidence in Gotham, the network’s upcoming Batman prequel series. The show will debut on Monday nights at 8pm this fall, leading into the second season of Sleepy Hollow.
Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly said today that, though the network is contractually obligated to 13 episodes of Gotham, the network is ordering 16 installments to start. He noted, “That’s a comment on how strongly we feel about it.” He also believes that the first story arc will work best with an episode order of that size.
Sleepy Hollow, which had 13 episodes last season, will have 18 installments in season two. Reilly expects the season to run nearly uninterrupted and added, “They are now in series production a good two months before just about any other returning drama on television.”
