Will there be a Gotham Season 6?

Why was Gotham cancelled?
There were no falling viewership issues, no bad ratings, and no bad comments. On the other hand, fans were loving the show as today. The thing that led to the show’s cancellation was completion of Batman’s character.
All seasons of Gotham series were having 22 episodes in total except the fifth one which left with only 12 episodes because the creators were running out of content. The story belongs to James Gordon not Bruce Wayne and the plot development was possible until Batman wasn’t a savior.
