Since its debut in 2014, the prequel series has been an enormous success on FOX. As you might know, the series rewinds time in Gotham with Bruce Wayne, who is navigating his life as a teenager without Detective Gordan and his parents.
The majority of the Gotham cast returned for Season 5, with some changes to their appearances. There’ll be some other changes too with the series being dropped from 22 episodes to 12 although it was planned for even less. In the last season, we also witnessed the debut of Nyssa and Bane.
The shorter length of the season means that the series won't arrive as soon as usual in September, even though it will be much earlier than normal.
Let’s now take a look at each individual English speaking Netflix region to see when season 5 of Gotham will drop on the service as it will differ slightly depending on where you reside.
For those in the United States, new seasons have released for the past several years in September and that’s once again the case for the final season. September 30th will be the last day of season.
Canadians should expect the same thing on Netflix, which will be released in September 2019.
If you’re in the United Kingdom, you’ll likely have the shortest wait of all the regions. Normally, episodes are released in August, but this year the last season will go live on Netflix on July 24, 2019.
For Australians, you’re still waiting for season 4 to be added. Australia did catch up in 2019 adding seasons 2 and 3 but probably won’t get season 5 until 2020.
You probably already know that Fox pulled its content away from Netflix in the last couple years due to their contract being terminated. The good news here, however, is that Fox doesn’t control the streaming rights for the show.
That’s down to Warner Brothers who has decided to give Netflix the streaming license. There are two options: either Warner Brother will release its streaming service next year, or the DC streaming service.
