With Gotham's fifth and final season renewal that will see Bruce Wayne’s transformation into the caped crusader, the series will introduce the Ventriloquist and more classic Batman villains.

It was earlier confirmed that the final season will not premiere until 2019 and Gotham's executive producer John Stephens further confirmed that the season will introduce DC characters such as Scarface, Ventriloquist, Mother, Orphan and Lady Shiva into its final run.

Which obviously means a lot more action.

"There are a whole bunch of characters I want to see that I feel the viewers at large aren't fully aware of, like Scarface or Ventriloquist," Stephens told CBR.

The final season for a Batman prequel has raised hope for fans who have seen new threats and faces with every new season.

So in the final season, there's a lot.

"There's a great dark version of that character somewhere out there who I would like to see come out. Some characters we know we want to see are Mother and Orphan," added Stephens. 


"We want to see Lady Shiva. We are going to see all those characters in season 5," he affirmed.

The show's season four finale aired last week and managed to kill off iconic Gotham characters including Butch Gilzean, a.k.a. Solomon Grundy (Drew Powell).

With this, the grounds have been set for the final season that will ultimately see Bruce complete his transformation into Batman after years of build-up.

Gotham's last season will pick up right after Jeremiah's plan to detonate a series of massive bombs under the city's streets, leaving Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and the rest of the survivors facing a number of previously unknown enemies.

Earlier this month, the actor playing Jeremiah, Cameron Monaghan, tweeted why they didn't name his character the "Joker" in the series.

Cameron revealed the decision not to officially name either of his characters as the Joker came "from high-up" in order to "reserve" the name for the DCEU film series.
