After ABC ordered more episodes of How to Get Away With Murder and black-ish last week, FOX today has ordered six more episodes of breakout drama Gotham, it was announced today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. The additional episodes bring the drama's first season up to 22.

"Gotham debuted as one of the most buzzed-about shows of the fall, and with good reason. Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we've never seen before," said Walden and Newman. "We are so excited to see where Bruno, Danny and the entire Gotham team take this story over the course of this season, and so thankful to all the fans who have embraced it this fall."

Gotham was created by Bruno Heller and stars Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Zabryna Guevara, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Victoria Cartagena, Andrew Stewart-Jones, John Doman and Jada Pinkett Smith.
