Ripper Street is Back

Yes indeed I have just seen this and I am so happy as the series that was axed by the BBC is coming back.

Amazon, BBC Team Up to Revive ‘Ripper Street’

LONDON — Amazon has partnered with the BBC to revive period crime drama “Ripper Street,” which airs Stateside on BBC America.

The BBC cancelled the series, which stars Matthew Macfadyen, in December after two seasons due to poor ratings.

Amazon’s Prime Instant Video, which was previously known in the U.K. as Lovefilm, has acquired British subscription streaming rights to the show. Amazon will commission a third season of “Ripper Street,” with episodes offered exclusively on Prime Instant Video before screening on BBC1, the pubcaster’s flagship channel, a few months later. Prime Instant Video will be the only SVOD service in the U.K. to carry the first two seasons of the drama.

BBC America will continue to co-produce the series, and premiere it in the U.S.

The show is produced by Tiger Aspect Prods. and Lookout Point, with BBC Worldwide handling international distribution.

Filming on season three will begin in May.

Hurray Good News



  1. Good news, indeed! The "poor ratings" excuse didn't reflect the true nature of things. Audience appreciation of the series was high, around 90%. I'm glad to see it back.

    1. Changing the day from Sunday to Monday didnt help either

  2. Yes, I have seen this today, great news !

  3. That is great news, so thansk for sharing:)

  4. Heard this a few weeks ago, but nothing concrete since. Phew!


  5. It was put up against Ant or Dec's 'I'm a Celebrity' which is one of the most viewed shows on British TV. Not surprising it didn't reach the viewing figures of the first season

  6. Good news - but what is a "pubcaster"?

  7. There is a chance you are eligible to receive a $1,000 Amazon Gift Card.
