New shows are coming this fall and Fox is kicking things off in high gear. First, Gotham returns for Season 4 and fans are excited to see Bruce Wayne take his place as Batman. Known for its many origin stories that chronicle the rise of Gotham’s villains, the show is a fan favorite and excitement is high for tonight’s return. Gotham airs from 8-9 p.m. ET and is followed by the new series The Orville.
Seth MacFarlane, the creator of award-winning shows like Family Guy and American Dad, is at it again with The Orville. The Orville consists of 13 episodes and is a sci-fi, comedy adventure series that will star MacFarlane and Adrienne Palicki.
A special two-part premiere aired on Sunday, September 10 and September 17, but tonight will be the official launch for the series in its Thursday time slot. Fox is also celebrating the show with a new contest.
You may see the trailers for Gotham Season 4 and The Orville in the video players below.
David Mazouz pays young Bruce Wayne and on Wednesday, he held a live Facebook chat where fans could interact and ask their questions.
As Gotham has endured three seasons that focused on villains it’s now time for Batman to emerge and take his place in the fight for the city he loves.
This promises to be a ground-breaking season for Gotham and now that the origin stories have been revealed, it’s rightful time for Batman to emerge the victorious hero that he is.
If you missed the live Facebook chat you can watch it in the video player below.
Seth MacFarlane is the creator, writer, and executive producer of The Orville and stars as its main character Ed Mercer.
Though The Orville will premiere on Fox tonight, it will not be the first episode.
