No Season 2 for the superhero drama.
June 12, 2023
Word is out that Gotham Knights has been cancelled by The CW after just one season. The news comes with two episodes remaining in the superhero drama's freshman run, meaning its June 27 episode will now serve as its series finale.
Showrunners James Stoteraux and Chad Fiveash posted a joint statement on Twitter, thanking fans for their support but stating that, despite their best efforts, a new home was not able to be found.
In the show, Batman is dead and Gotham City has been left without the Dark Knight to protect it. Bruce Wayne's adopted son, Turner Hayes, is framed for the Caped Crusader's murder, along with the children of some of Batman's enemies. With hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner relies on his best friend and Batman's sidekick for support. Before long, the Knights soon discover a larger, more nefarious force at work within Gotham City. The team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become the city's next generation of saviors.

This show was awful - not to mention woke trash as well. It really didn't need a second season to tell subpar stories full of holes or emphasize bad writing. it was a waste of money and talent.
Though, of all of them, Joker's Daughter was the best of the bunch.

Some of you will find any reason to blame “woke” or “modern audiences,” get a life. CW has always built their shows on modern inclusion. Stay in your caves if you’re so scared.
It was cancelled because they wanted to put the budget toward Superman & Lois which is a far more superior show. Even that got cut down to 10 episodes. Nothing to do with the writing and the audience. If Vampire Diaries can run 8/9 seasons they would’ve pushed this on if they really wanted to. It was the same CW poor stories rehashed to begin with.

Never seen this show but I KNEW even from the tv spots and promos that this show sucked ass more than The Winchesters. Good riddance.

Why did the CW even make this? One season and out? Makes no sense. Either shoot the season and keep going or don't do it at all.

Bummed out by the cancelation. It was an interesting else world's kind of story. But keeping Superman and Lois was was the right call.

Exceptionally weak writing... they WANTED to use Batman, joker, et al.. but instead.. they just made teenage clones. It was just outright silly and poorly acted.

It started out bad. But I was patient & it did get better.

This was not a good show. It was the cheapest show they ever made (and it showed), made by one of the worst teams ever (the same people behind the Batwoman show) and all it did was to inject edgy "modern audience" characters into the Batman universe while completely disrespecting Bruce Wayne and the lore in general. Its ratings are beyond horrible. I'm glad CW acted rationally by canceling this show instead of tripling down again the way they did with Batwoman.

I knew from the opining scene, this would not get picked up for a second season CW only puts out trash anyway.
