The series was written by Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash, all of whom also served as executive producers with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden through Berlanti Productions.[2] The video game of the same title also takes place in a post-Bruce Wayne Gotham and also features the Court of Owls as antagonists,[21] but the projects are unrelated.[2] In February 2022, The CW ordered a pilot episode to evaluate.[22][23] When designing the costumes for the pilot, costume designer Jennifer May Nickel, worked with writers Stoteraux and Fiveash, to incorporate aspects of the uniform from the Gotham Academy comic books.[24] In May 2022, The CW picked up Gotham Knights to series.[25]

In May 2023, Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment at The CW, stated that Gotham Knights was among series that were not profitable directly for The CW and was more expensive than series imported for The CW such as Sullivan's Crossing.[26] On June 12, 2023, The CW canceled the series after one season.[1] Showrunners Chad Fiveash and James Stoteraux stated on June 14 that Warner Bros.
