At the moment, the little that has been confirmed about the plot of Arkham is that the series will focus mainly on the corruption of the Gotham Police Department, although the series will be very different from what was seen in Gotham , as confirmed by its showrunner Joe Barton .
Through social networks, Barton denied the rumors that circulated that the plot would focus on the future commissioner of Gotham James Gordon and corroborated that the Arkham series would not follow the same pattern as Gotham because, as he commented, “personally it would not be so interested in remaking a series that ended about 5 minutes ago. ”
