(Updated 9th March) Gotham will return to Channel 5 in the UK with what the station is calling a “special feature-length episode” in the week beginning 14th March 2015, with C5 promising to reveal the exact return date “soon” on Facebook and Twitter.

[UPDATE: Gotham will resume on Monday 16th March 2015]

It looks as though “feature length” means the station will re-show Episode 10, “Lovecraft”, back to back with “Rogues Gallery” as part of the show’s relaunch, with the series then running without a break to the season finale.

In “Lovecraft”, James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is reassigned to duty at Arkham Asylum after Selina leads Bruce Wayne on a perilous journey through Gotham to evade the assassins after her.

In “Rogues’ Gallery”, Gordon’s assignment at Arkham Asylum gets off to a rocky start when the murder of a guard ignites an investigation, leading him to meet Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Meanwhile, Cobblepot continues to build his army and Cat happens upon a sickly Ivy alone in an alley, and seeks refuge in Gordon’s penthouse in order to get her back on her feet.
