After failing to attract ratings Ripper Street was axed but now it’s back.
The BBC series which was axed in December will have a thrd season after, Amazon Prime Instant Video struck a deal with the BBC to revive the show.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to bring back Ripper Street for a third series by working with the right partners,” said the BBC’s controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson. This deal gives fans another series of the show they love at excellent value to the licence fee payer, ensuring that the BBC can also commission an entirely new, yet to be announced drama series.” Filming for the new series will begin in May, and it will debut on Amazon Prime Instant Video before airing on TV a few months later
Ripper Street has aired in Australia on TEN.
