"Your parent's death Bruce, it did not end their legacy to make Gotham better, it only empowered it. Destiny has given you this chance to make this city better and whether you like it or not, you have a date with destiny - which you cannot cancel. It has made it's invitation and cleared it's schedule, It's made reservations and there is no way to make excuses. There are no rainchecks, for destiny has stopped the rain."

Wayne is a television show which premiered in 2013, based on the comic-book superhero, Batman. The show was created by creator of Bones, Hart Hanson, comic-book writer Greg Jones, and creator of Arrow, Greg Berlanti. The series is pronounced by it's dramatically realistic take on the character and it's creative changes to the mythos to make it as such. The story follows Bruce Wayne as he returns to Gotham from his leaving after death of his parents, as he learns the new ways of Gotham, the crime ridden city that he left unattended to for so many years. Using his knowledge of how criminals work from his days in Japan, Bruce becomes the Batman in an attempt to stop the crime that started 13 years ago in memory of his parents.

The series has received rather positive acclaim since it first premiered on HBO. It has been called "The greatest reinvention of Batman since Christopher Nolan. Finally the gritty and down to earth level of the caped crusader we loved from the Dark Knight Trilogy to an extreme for the first time on television." The show has also received criticism from other fans and critics stating that it is too far from the original Batman, and the classical comic book style had been lost.

Wayne has inspired two spin-off series, Grayson and Hush. Hush focuses on Thomas Elliot - Hush - directly after the events in Wayne, as a villains perspective of the tv show.  Grayson is about Richard (or Rich) Grayson, long after the events of Wayne and durring Hush as he becomes the vigilante of Blüdhaven, Nightwing.

Along with these two spin-off series, a mini-series that takes place between seasons one and two that focuses on Gotham while Bruce is recovering his back. This is based on the Knightfall story arc as Azrael takes over the cowl with the help of Grayson to defend Gotham titled Wayne: Knightfall.
