What do you mean? Gotham will start the week after Arrow is finished. Arrow finishes Thursday 25 May and Gotham will return Thursday 1st June

Except that we were originally promised it earlier.

I know that this was tentative, but a quick check on Wikipedia shows that none of the previous seasons of Arrow ended in April, so the 4th of May was never going to be a realistic return date for Gotham.

The dates I gave are the dates from America. Plus our date so unless something happens it will end on date provided and Gotham will return on date provided.

I don't think Vuzu Amp will put it on another date or time. At least we know when it will return after Arrow is finished

OK something totally unrelated but relevant.

Last season of supernatural we got started close to USA then went on break. Supposed to return in February then we got a notice saying only returning in August. Luckily it didn't return in August was much earlier

Point of story this won't happen with Gotham. It will return either. End May or beginning June.

Gotham is a slightly different situation. Supernatural went on the standard December/January break, and its return from that break was what was originally announced to be August but we got it sooner.

If a similar thing had happened with Gotham then it wouldn't be so bad, but it was cut off at a point that wasn't a natural break. Gotham has had two such points this season - after Episode 11 (the December/January break) and after Episode 14 (splitting the season in two, and the second half only starts in April). Either of those would have been an appropriate place to break for us, but it couldn't happen because they made the ridiculous decision to put it during Arrow's mid-season break, which was never going to to 11 weeks.

Then to compound the poor scheduling decisions, we were told that it would return on the 4th of May, which as I've pointed out was unrealistic. Just promising May would have been a bit better, as if I can establish so easily that the claimed date was unrealistic then why couldn't people whose job it is to plan these things do so?
