Gotham is returning for its fifth and final season in January 2019 and will eventually be coming to Netflix around the world throughout 2019. Here’s the Netflix release schedule for season 5 of Gotham. 

The prequel series has been a big success for FOX since it started airing back in 2014. The series, as you may know, rewind the clock on the Gotham universe that Batman resides into when Bruce Wayne was young.

The next season will see the cast return with some updates to their looks. There’ll be some other changes too with the series being dropped from 22 episodes to 12 although it was planned for even less.

Now, despite the series arriving much later than usual (September is normally when new seasons air), the series will still wrap up in May or early June thanks to the shorter season length.

Netflix Release Schedule Worldwide

Let’s now take a look at each individual English speaking Netflix region to see when season 5 will drop on the service as it does differ slightly.

For those in the United States, new seasons have released for the past several years in September meaning you can expect the series to drop sometime in September 2019.

Likewise, Canadians can expect it to be available on Netflix in September 2019 at the earliest.

If you’re in the United Kingdom, you’ll likely have the shortest wait of all the regions. The UK gets new seasons traditionally in August with only season 3 slipping into September. That means August 2019 seems the most likely.

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.

Wait, won’t Gotham be leaving Netflix in the US?

As you probably know, Fox has been yanking its content from Netflix over the past couple of years thanks to their contract falling through. 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. Of course, a problem could arise next year when Warner Brother releases its own streaming service or they opt to put the series on its DC streaming service instead.
