If TV shows had hype songs, this one would get y'all thumping. Because it's all about Gotham going out with all the bangs.

Ahead of its fifth and final season, which launches on January 3, the evil geniuses from Fox's Special Ops video team have put together a three-minute preview that is laden with details about how it all ends, and TV Insider has your exclusive first look!

The final season sets the stage for Batman’s rise, and we have your first peek at the gang and, for some of them, their new looks.

Prepare to hit pause and rewind a bunch of times to catch a peek at some of the baddies (Hi, Scarecrow!), alliances and even a certain someone's new claws. Along the way, we get almost the entire cast of regulars weighing-in on what has been going down in the 87 days since Jeremiah blew up the bridges and cut the city off from the outside world.

"It's Gotham like you've never seen it," offers Chris Chalk, whose Lucius Fox will be assisting Ben McKenzie's Jim Gordon and David Mazouz's vigilante-in-training Bruce Wayne in "The Legend of the Dark Knight"'s battle between varying factions of heroes and villains. Along the way, there's clearly a load of pieces that need to moved so the origin story can reach its officially announced destination of bringing Batman to the screen.
